Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Airport dogs could sniff out coronavirus

Detection dogs are trained to detect specific substances, such as explosives, drugs, and firearms. They are usually deployed at airports where such items are illegally carried in. There also are sniffing dogs that are specially trained for medical purposes. They can detect specific odors that come out of humans who have certain medical conditions like malaria or cancers.

Now, there is one thing that customs, immigration, and health offices of any country worry the most in common. COVID-19. So, researchers in the UK have picked up several super sniffing dogs and are now training them to detect the novel virus. Those dogs are being trained to learn the odors of the people who have been tested positive, specifically from their face masks and nylon socks, which the researchers found the most effective for training. If successful, a COVID-19 sniffing dog can screen as many as 250 people per hour.

Another new safety procedure may be seen at the airport soon.

Enjoy reading the article and watch the video to learn how dogs could help humans’ physical problems.
