Covid-19 dogs arrive at the airport – able to identify the virus earlier than laboratory tests
Highly trained and almost infallible, the dogs at Vantaa airport are able to identify the Covid-19 virus with an error rate of 0%. They are also able to track down the virus even before symptoms appear, something in which even laboratory tests fail.
In addition, the incredible nose of these dogs allows them to be able to trace the virus from a much smaller sample than laboratory tests: in fact, they only need 10-100 molecules against the 18,000,000 needed for tests.
