The thermometer beeps when it has finished measuring. What do these beeps mean?


When you measure your body's temperature, there are 2 different types of beeps that sound once the temperature has been measured. When the thermometer gives 1 beep per second, the measured temperature is normal, i.e. below 37.8℃. When it gives 3 sets of short beeps in 1 second, this indicates possible fever, i.e. the measured temperature is above 37.8℃.
