Covid-19 detector dogs arrive at Miami International Airport. Cobra and OneBetta are the first dogs in the world to work in Miami to provide canine sniffing services for the Covid-19 virus.
For 30 days, OneBetta and Cobra will be subjected to a pilot test. In this sense, to test the effectiveness mechanism, which they claim to be 97%, according to the FIU.
Besides, the first to submit to the dogs’ nose will be the terminal employees.
Additionally, the canines were trained at Florida International University under protocols designed by, the Global Forensic and Justice Center.
At the end, the results have been satisfactory, since they have been compared with rapid tests for Covid-19 to compare results.
How do they detect Covid-19?
As mentioned in previous lines, dogs can sniff out the virus. In this way, Cobra and OneBetta can respond immediately, after detecting the virus in a mask or public spaces.
After completing this program, FIU will continue to develop precision in detecting virus variants.
For now, the canines will only provide their service to detect the virus in the personnel of the American Airlines terminal.
If the result is progressive, more dogs will be prepared to expand at the airport and implement the technology in passengers.
At the moment, Miami International Airport is the first airport to have the advantage of working with Covid-19 detection dogs. At the same time, hopefully it will expand globally in the future.
