Professor Jean-Marc Treluyer stated, “These are excellent results, comparable with those of a PCR test.” However, the dogs will not be used to eliminate the test, but to help in the detection of who needs to be tested. Professor Jean-Mar continued, “they could help identify those people who should undergo a full viral test and – because the dogs’ response is so quick – facilitate mass testing”.
With the concerts being announced and travel increasing, these dogs can help stop the spread of Covid 19 as the world strives for ‘herd immunity. I would support these types of measures being taken much more than testing every attendee or showing proof of a vaccine. Kind of like the dogs sniffing your luggage at the airport.
Anything that gets us back to concerts, sporting events, festivals, and more!
