Dogs helping to fight COVID-19

We know dogs have done amazing things, from sniffing out bombs, warning owners about upcoming seizures, to early cancer detection. Once again they may become a wonderful helping hand. A medical charity, called Medical Detection Dogs, in England that has successfully trained dogs to detect malaria is now attempting to train man’s best friend to identify the smell of COVID-19.

They are partnering with the Tropical Medicine and Hygiene School in London along with Durham University to begin trialing dogs for the job.
