A German veterinary clinic has reportedly trained sniffer dogs to detect coronavirus in human saliva samples with 94% accuracy.

Stephan Weil, premier of Lower Saxony in Hanover said he was impressed with the study and called for feasibility tests before the sniffer dogs are put to use in everyday life, such as on people attending concerts.

It has been reported that German veterinary clinics have trained sniffer dogs to detect the coronavirus in human saliva samples with 94% accuracy.

The dog has a condition to receive. “Corona smell” coming from cells in people infected with Esther Schalke, a veterinarian at the German Army Service Dog School said.

Filou, a 3-year-old Belgian shepherd dog, and a 1-year-old Joe Cocker Cocker Spaniel are two dogs trained at the Hanover University of Veterinary Sciences.

“We did a study in which dogs sniffed samples of COVID patients positive, and we could say they had a 94% probability in our study … that they could sniff it out,” said Ho. Said Volk, head of the veterinary clinic.

“So dogs can smell infected and uninfected people as well as asymptomatic and asymptomatic COVID patients,” he adds.

Stephan Weil, Prime Minister of Lower Saxony in Hanover, said he was impressed with the study and asked for a feasibility test before using sniffer dogs in everyday life, such as people attending concerts.

“Right now we need a test at certain events,” he said, Weil said.

In September 2020, dogs trained to detect the novel coronavirus have begun to smell passenger samples at Helsinki-Vantaa airport in Finland.

The report, scientists training sniffer dogs to detect the corona virus with 94% accuracy, appeared for the first time in the Oriental Times.
