據CNN報道,現在英國的一個研究團隊希望狗的靈敏嗅覺能幫助檢測新冠病毒。研究人員稱,狗狗檢測不會取代傳統的新冠檢測,但如果新冠試劑盒短缺,需要幾小時,甚至幾天才能出結果的時候,狗狗可以進行補充檢測。
Canines1 have been used for decades to sniff2 out drugs, bombs, corpses3 and even cancer.
 
Now, a team of British researches are hoping dogs' keen sense of smell can help detect COVID-19, CNN reports.
 
The London School of Hygiene4 and Tropical Medicine is working with specially5 trained dogs to develop a new kind of coronavirus test, one that doesn't require a swab, but just a sniff.
 
The organization recently discovered canines can detect Malaria6 infections in humans and they are investigating whether the same is true for COVID-19.
 
The training began in March and researchers are eyeing six weeks as enough to determine if the dogs are up to snuff.
 
If the tests go well, these "super sniffers" could be deployed7 to screen up to 250 people per hour for the virus.
 
According to researchers, the dog tests won't replace traditional coronavirus testing but will be used as a supplement since COVID-19 tests are in short supply and results can take hours, if not days to come back.
 
Researchers said the dogs could be used at airports and other public areas in the future to help prevent another outbreak once the current pandemic declines.
