Thank you, Olivier and Julie! I share your opinion!

Grazie, Cezar&Léia!!

Thank you, Carrie!!

Thank you too, Henny!! I had a great time in China, although it was short as I am leaving again today!

Yes Dina, they were taking our temperature with the sort of gun you can see in the picture. Then there was a second person behind this lady, also totally covered, who took random samples from people's throat with a small stick!!

Paranoi abounds, indeed. We have thermal scanners at major airports. Apparently, as you walk past, they can pick up whether you have a fever.

Laurie said...

Coming through Heathrow security the other day I was asked how I felt. The way she scrutinized me, I knew she wasn't simply being sociable. This is a great documentary photograph.

Dina said...

They even took samples?? Seems so strange.

@ Julie & Ann.. I don't think it's paranoia. With a population like theirs the Chinese gtta be careful.

But its a very sci fi moment.
