Finding COVID-19 with scent detection

  1. Marcy Wilhelm-South

    Dogs in Helsinki's airport are being used to detect the COVID-19 virus in travelers. This pilot program is voluntary for participants and uses sweat collected on wipes from the passengers participating. It takes about 10 seconds. 

    Four dogs are trained and working this week; an additional six dogs are still in training.
