New Study Aims to Determine Dogs’ Ability to Sniff Out COVID-19

New Study Aims to Determine Dogs’ Ability to Sniff Out COVID-19

Yes, trials are now taking place in the United Kingdom to see whether specially trained airport sniffer dogs could detect Covid-19 in travellers before they even exhibit any symptoms.

When sniffing out COVID-19, Minder said, "it's a single odor that's different from the rest of the environment", that he trains his dogs to single out.

Sniffer dogs have proven very effective in detecting drugs, weapons, and other contraband at airports.

In the UK, Durham University has partnered with the charity Medical Detection Dogs and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine to test their noses against the virus.

Medical detection dogs have also been trained to sniff out various diseases like malaria, cancer, and Parkinson's disease, all of which produce a distinctive odour.

United Kingdom government has given the research team more than £500,000 (RM2,663,698) and six dogs comprising of either Labradors or Cocker Spaniels have been recruited.

Is No Credit Better Than Having Bad Credit?
In fact, that’s the best possible use of credit — engaging it to do something that can help you make money. No Credit The good news about having no credit history is there’s nothing negative about you out there.

"The Super Six" are all Labradors or Cocker Spaniels, two common breeds of sniffer dogs.

The lead researcher on the project, Professor James Logan, is confident the preliminary trial will yield productive results.

Dogs have a remarkable sense of smell and scientists are studying whether our canine friends could help identify people infected with the novel coronavirus.

The team will also use nylon socks to collect odor samples.

If the first phase is successful, six dogs may be deployed in airports and other key points of entry to rapidly screen travelers entering the U.K. According to Euronews, one dog could screen up to 250 incoming passengers per hour.

NHS England announced 187 new deaths of people who tested positive for Covid-19, bringing the total number of confirmed reported deaths in hospitals in England to 25,267.

CEO and co-founder of Medical Detection Dogs Dr. Claire Guest said she thinks the dogs' ability to quickly screen people will be invaluable as the United Kingdom moves towards deconfinement, according to BBC.
