In these dire times, the whole world needs every little help that we can get. Our next batch of superheroes might come in the form of a four-legged furry cutesy, commonly known as man’s best friend. Medical Detection Dogs, a charity movement that has spent years researching a dog’s ability to smell and detect disease.

Previously, the charity working with London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) and Durham University, has managed to prove that dogs can be trained to detect malaria. The team is together yet again to train their dogs for six weeks so that these dogs can play a role in detecting Covid 19.

CEO of Medical Detection Dogs, Dr Claire Guest in a statement published in their official website explained,

“In principle, we’re sure that dogs could detect COVID-19. We are now looking into how we can safely catch the odour of the virus from patients and present it to the dogs. The aim is that dogs will be able to screen anyone, including those who are asymptomatic and tell us whether they need to be tested. This would be fast, effective and non-invasive and make sure the limited NHS testing resources are only used where they are really needed.”

We welcome any sort of effort which can help the detection of the virus especially if they are backed by science. Early detection helps and we can’t wait to see our furry friends in action as part of the movement to curb the spread of Covid-19.
