The ability and accuracy of thermal imaging over conventional image cameras has led to the implementation of thermal cameras in people counting/tracking applications. This paper presents a thermal people counting/tracking application, capable of tracking people with signs like high body temperature for COVID 19. The people application would be remotely monitored from a single centralized PC station and can be connected also to several thermal imaging sensors for data collection. This application can help speed up the tracking rate of COVID 19 cases that are unknow. By placing the thermal imaging sensor at several locations like malls, schools, airport etc, the application can help identify people with high body temperation and isolate them and their data can help keep others safe.
