FIU Is Training Dogs To Detect COVID

As you may know, the Miami Heat will be using dogs to sniff out COVID at home games, well now, so is Florida International University. They’re going to start using trained dogs to sniff out the virus on campus to help stop the spread. You’ll start seeing COVID-19 detector dogs around campus this spring!

COVID-19 detecting dogs can sweep an area and alert to the presence of the odor that is left on surfaces (particles, aerosols, cellular material) by a person infected with COVID-19. FIU’s COVID detector dogs were also invited to sweep the State Emergency Operations Center in Tallahassee. They will start their work at the Florida capital this week.
