Dogs are now being trained to smell coronavirus in US patients

Nearly two months after dogs started being trained to sniff out COVID-19 in the U.K., a similar program is coming to the U.S. A program from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine is testing to see if dogs, which have 50 times the number of smell receptors that humans have (300 million to 6 million), are able to sniff out COVID-19 positive patients, especially those that are asymptomatic.
