Indian Army uses dogs to detect COVID-19

The Indian Army is using its dogs for quick detection of COVID-19 to cut downtime delays associated with regular diagnostic techniques.

The canine members of the armed force are known for their pronounced olfactory capability and have earlier helped in explosive, narcotics detection and other challenging tasks.

Two dogs–two-year-old cocker spaniel Casper and one-year-old Jaya, a ‘chippiparai’ have been trained to detect COVID-19 by sniffing samples of sweat and urine.
