BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND - MARCH 06: A Boxer dog looks out from its kennel on first day of Crufts dog show at the NEC on March 6, 2014 in Birmingham, England. Said to be the largest show of its kind in the world, the annual four-day event, features thousands of dogs, with competitors travelling from countries across the globe to take part.

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!
