Sniffer dogs trained for corona virus

Recommended Posts

Aroundthecorner

I listened to a news story the other night that sniffer dogs are being trained to sniff for the virus giving 100% returns, working off ten parts per million. Sorry I have no link but it was on a local radio station. 

Anyone?

Passengers who agree to take a free test under the voluntary program in Helsinki do not have direct physical contact with a dog.

They are asked to swipe their skin with a wipe which is then put into a jar and given to a dog waiting in a separate booth...

It takes the dog a mere 10 seconds to sniff the virus samples before it gives the test result by scratching a paw, laying down, barking or otherwise making its conclusion known...

Timo Aronkyto, the deputy mayor of Vantaa, the capital region city where the airport is located, said the program is costing 300,000 euros ($495,746) — an amount he called "remarkably lower" than other methods of mass testing arriving passengers.

They detect all sorts of things, things that you wouldn’t associate with a smell automatically, like paper money, as well as other disease processes, so if they can do this, then brilliant, bring it on.
