Covid sniffer dogs set to be unleashed all over Bangkok - these "Labs" are 94% correct!

Specially trained dogs are set to begin work in Bangkok sniffing out Covid-19.

 

The six Labrador Retrievers have been trained by the vet department at Chulalongkorn University.

 

Dr Kawalee Chatdarong said they are accurate to 94.8% and can sniff out asymptomatic individuals.

 

They won't actually be going up to potentially infected people though. They have been trained to sniff samples of sweat on cotton wool contained in canisters. 

 

If there's the smell of Covid the dogs sit down. 

 

Manager reported that the plan is the brainchild of Social Development and Human Security minister Chuti Krairiksh with help from volunteers and the vets at Chula. 

 

The plan is to train 100 handlers so that the dogs can be used in 50 districts in the Thai capital. 

 

Their target will be bedridden people who can't get out to have a test.

So the guy that posted about body odor gets a free pass?

All dogs are part of the Soi Dog Early Work Release Programme

"The plan is to train 100 handlers so that the dogs can be used in 50 districts in the Thai capital" The poor dogs are going to be knackered ....... regards worgeordie

Why not put the sniffers outside the 711 like the soi dogs hanging around?  Nab em before they can get them snacks.

Only in Thailand folks, Covid sniffing dogs while no one else in the world thought about it.. Go Thailand...

The only thing missing would be to send in the drones immediately after for an alcohol bath that is if they are not too busy dropping molasses to clear the air.

Unfortunately the smart BMWs that can smell an overstaying foreigner from a mile away, cannot smell the virus...maybe time to buy Teslas, who know a thing or two about viruses, since they are full of them...

 

In the meantime they have no other solution than using the Prime Minister's labradors, who were originally trained to sniff truffles, but can also deal with viruses.

 

The good part is that the friendly dogs don't need to go all the way up into our nose to detect the damn bug, since they can do it by sniffing directly our crotch, which is far more convenient...

Actually I have read reports from other countries that dogs can detect Covid-19 but there is some way to go before they can be used as sniffer dogs.

No it isn't. There are lots of articles on the internet about this.

mass testing does the same but on a much bigger scale if you bothered to do it
