Dogs could detect coronavirus in humans, researchers say


As if dogs weren’t good enough for humans already – some researchers believe specially trained dogs could help fight the coronavirus pandemic. A team of researchers from the United Kingdom hopes to train dogs to literally smell the disease.

Trained dogs are able to detect other medical conditions, including diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, malaria and even cancer.

Since there is a need more coronavirus testing, researchers from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, non-profit medical detection organizations and the University of Durham said they “have started to intensively prepare dogs so that they are ready in six weeks”.
