The UK Medical Detection Charity Center reports that it has already managed to have six dogs capable of smelling the smell of the disease on the clothes worn by infected people.
James Logan, a professor at the London School of Hygiene and Medicine, says tests have shown that each dog can screen between 250 and 300 people an hour.
“You know, what we found was that dogs could detect exactly if someone was infected with COVID, in 94% of cases. And what is really incredible about these dogs is that they can do it really, really fast. So each dog can screen from 250 to 300 people per hour. “What we also found was that dogs are able to detect people who do not have any symptoms and also people with a low viral load,” said James Logan, a professor at the London School of Hygiene and Medicine.
Researchers say this is an idea, a quick project that works for crowds, but should also be followed by a PCR test./Euronews
