Sniffer dogs outsmart lab tests for COVID-19

October 29, 2020 Headline News No Comments
Sniffer dogs could soon be used to identify COVID-19 as the aviation industry works to make air travel as safe as possible according to Blue Sky News.

A pilot training program using scent-detection dogs to discriminate between samples from COVID-positive and COVID-negative patients is the focus of a new research initiative at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine.
Dogs have up to 300 million smell receptors, compared to 6 million in humans. Similar studies and pilot programs are taking place in other countries such as Germany, which has reported an accuracy rate of 94 percent, and France, where dogs detected the virus in two subjects who had not yet tested positive via traditional laboratory assessments.
