A nose for COVID? Israeli helps train dogs to sniff out coronavirus
A team of researchers in Hawaii, including an Israeli, have recently completed a Phase III study on the use of dogs to sniff out coronavirus and prevent its spread.
The results of the study conducted by Assistance Dogs of Hawaii (ADH), which are expected to be submitted for peer-review as early as this week, show that the dogs are almost 100% accurate at the task.
ADH has been teaching four dogs – three Labrador retrievers named Sadie, Tess and Yuki, and a Golden retriever named Samson – to detect people infected with corona. Ten dogs tried out for the program, but only these dogs made the cut.
