Covid sniffing police dogs, Huntah and Duke, can 99% accurately detect COVID-19 by smell. The detection program was developed by Florida International University’s International Forensic Research Institute.
According to Bristol County Capt. Paul Douglas, the K-9s can detect any variant such as the Omicron and Delta variant. Once they smell the virus, they alert the staff by sitting down.
These sniffing heroes will go around in schools in Massachusetts to help kids feel secure about their surroundings. Even if the students are there, the dogs will go through the backpacks and around the teachers.
