Westminster Group rolls out fever detection equipment at West African airport

Fever detection equipment has been issued at its West African airport operation in the light of the Ebola outbreak, security firm Westminster (LON:WSG) said on Friday.

A Westminster team will train airport officials on the use of the company's WG520 detection system, which identifies people who may be suffering from Ebola, common influenza, SARS and other flu variants, it told investors.

The company reiterated that it still has not yet seen any adverse impact on passenger numbers at the airport due to the virus.

Westminster said the system had advantages over handheld devices being used at other airports, as it provides for automatic screening and an alarm.

The aim of the roll-out is to protect any infected person from travelling in accordance with World Health Organisation (WHO) requirements, it said.

As already reported, the firm has seen traffic numbers at the airport 22.3% up in the first full week of August compared to last year and 8.9% in the year to date.

Westminster shares gained 7.93% to 44.25p.
