Coronavirus-sniffing dogs have become an unexpected tool in the battle against COVID-19, having already been deployed from Florida to New York to Massachusetts.
“The dogs have been tested in data collected and published at 99.6% accuracy,” program manager Kip Schultz told The New York Post on Thursday (Jan. 6). “So, that’s pretty good.”
“It’s all about tools in the toolbox,” Schultz said. “I think in the times that we’re in, the dog is vital to combat the virus.”
