A fight broke out on Friday July 31 on the flight of the company KLM between Amsterdam and Ibiza . The reason ? Two passengers, probably alcoholic, would have refused to respect the barrier gestures and to wear their masks. An attitude that scandalized the other passengers and the crew, causing a fight.

South Korea has opened a high - tech new front in the battle against coronavirus , fortifying bus shelters in the capital with temperature-checking doors and ultraviolet disinfection lamps. To enter, passengers must stand in front of an automated thermal-imaging camera, and the door will slide open

In the fight against the Corona crisis, South Korea relies on high-tech bus stops. Equipped with UV lamps, thermal imaging cameras and disinfectant dispensers, ten state-of-the-art stops in the capital Seoul are to ensure that people infected with the virus can no longer use buses.

The stops are in a district in the northeast of the metropolis. These are glass cabins with automatic doors. If you want to be taken by a bus driver, you first have to stand in front of a thermal imaging camera that is built into each of the stops. If the body temperature is below 37.5 degrees, the door opens and the cabin can be entered. Anyone who is hotter than 37.5 degrees stays outside - and the bus continues without it.

Seoul, South KoreaThe COVID-19 testing center at H Plus Yangji Hospital in southern Seoul doesn't look like much from the outside. Resembling a mobile home, the temporary building sits in a parking lot near a loading ramp, propped up on one end by a wooden plank.

South Korea has stepped up measures to contain the spread of the deadly new coronavirus , as confirmed infections increased sharply for a second day. She died in the south -western city of Busan after being transferred there from a hospital in a nearby country, according to Yonhap news agency.

"We have built every conceivable anti-corona measure there is into these cabins," said Kim Hwang Yun of the local AFP news agency. The 49-year-old Kim Ju Li, who tried one of the stops for the first time, was also satisfied: "I feel very safe in here. Because I know that the other's temperatures have also been checked."

Anyone who has made it into the bus stop doesn't have to sweat, even on hot summer days, until the bus arrives. Air conditioning cools the room, and radiation from built-in UV lamps is supposed to kill virus particles in the air. Dispensers provide disinfectants to those waiting - there is also an internet connection. On monitors, people are reminded to put on their protective masks and to keep at least one meter apart.

The cost per cabin is 100 million South Korean won (71,000 euros). According to the authorities, each cabin is used around 300 to 400 times a day.

South Korea was one of the first countries where the coronavirus spread after it was discovered in China. However, the authorities got the virus under control through an extensive program for case tracking, testing and treatment of the infected without having to resort to curfews.
