We have seen bombs and drugs being detected by the sniffer dogs. Now they are trained to detect people with Covi conditions.
Research experts in Switzerland have launched a training trial to see if sniffer dogs can find out people infected with COVID-19.
Dogs are being trained by researchers from Geneva University Hospitals (HUG) for four weeks by exposing to samples of sick and healthy people, after which the dogs will go through a sweat-sniffing test to see if they can identify infected individuals, said the hospitals in an online statement on Tuesday.
If it works out, “the use of dogs for screening for COVID-19 could be considered in Switzerland,” said the statement. If Dogs are used to detect Covid, the entire process becomes cheaper and easier.
The news is already viral on the web. Several countries especially the agencies from USA are showing keen interest in this experiment where dogs are being used to detect the Covid conditions.
