  • Popular thermometers with Amazon Prime shipping were tough to find for a while due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, but the best of them all is finally back: iHealth’s No-Touch Infrared Forehead Thermometer.
  • It’s often referred to as the “iPhone of forehead thermometers” because it features a terrific minimal design that’s sleek and easy to use.
  • All you have to do is hold it near your forehead or near someone else’s forehead and press one button — an accurate temperature reading will then be displayed on the screen in less than a second.

As far as low-tech tools that are essential to helping us fight the novel coronavirus pandemic, everyone knows about the two most important things. First and most importantly, you need to wear a face mask at all times when you’re not inside your home. Amazon’s best-selling face masks are on sale right now for just 50¢ each, and you can get a 10-pack of popular MagiCare KN95 face masks on sale for $24.94. Second, you need strong hand sanitizer. Small bottles of Purell hand sanitizer are actually in stock right now at Amazon, and you can get larger bottles of best-selling Medex Labs hand sanitizer with the same formulation at a much better price.

Beyond that, there are also a few high-tech tools that you should definitely have on hand in the age of the coronavirus. The first is a pulse oximeter, which is a fantastic device to have on hand if you’re exhibiting some symptoms but you’re not certain if you have the flu or COVID-19. This little device measures the oxygen level in your blood which should be somewhere between 95% and 100% when you’re healthy. Some coronavirus patients have been found with readings as low as 50%, and anything under 90% is considered by the Mayo Clinic to be unhealthy.

The second is just as important: you definitely need a good thermometer that’s accurate and can deliver fast temperature readings. The iHealth No-Touch Infrared Forehead Thermometer is the best-selling model on Amazon and it’s finally back in stock. What’s more, there’s a discount and a coupon available if you hurry. Regularly checking for a fever is considered by many to be even more important than reading blood oxygen levels, so definitely grab an iHealth thermometer before they sell out again. They also happen to be on sale right now at the lowest price since February!
