The Dogs Training to Sniff Out COVID-19

The Dogs Training to Sniff Out COVID-19

Promising early results from several studies have encouraged researchers around the world to develop and expand programs to train detection dogs to screen people for COVID-19 infection at places like airports, hospitals, or sports venues. While these early experiments appear to demonstrate high levels of accuracy by the sniffer dogs, researchers also caution that peer review processes and larger-scale studies are still needed. Gathered here, images from Russia, England, Chile, Australia, Iran, Finland, and more countries, where these canine detection programs are being developed.
