Finland Detects Coronavirus with Sniffer Dogs

Finland detects coronavirus with sniffer dogs. No, this is not a joke.

A group of dogs trained to detect COVID-19 is now working at the Helsinki Airport, sniffing around people and identifying the ones who carry the virus.

A new company from Finland, Wise Nose, has trained ten dogs so far, and all of them work at the airport in shifts of four dogs.
Their job is to detect the virus even before the person shows any symptoms.

According to airport authorities, the dogs’ accuracy in identifying COVID-19 is 100%.

Airport director Ulla Lettijeff said, “We are among the pioneers. As far as we know, no other airport has attempted to use canine scent detection on such a large scale against Covid-19. This might be an additional step forward on the way to beating Covid-19.”

The sniffing dogs deserve all the credits for their impeccable job, but it is still weird that they have better accuracy than coronavirus detection tests that the global health system depends on.

However, this innovative approach to combat the virus might be fruitful for the following weeks of seasonal flu and low temperatures.
