The University Hospital of Geneva is launching a project with the Swiss Army and the UN Security Service to enable four-legged virus sniffers in Switzerland. In the coming days, three dogs will start their corona training as part of a feasibility study.
As the hospital reports to the “Sunday newspaper”, it is necessary to provide evidence that the sniffer dogs have achieved a reliable result by the end of March. If the Geneva snoopers confirm the results from neighboring countries, the dogs could also be used in Switzerland in the future, the hospital announced.
“Everywhere where a source of infection is suspected – in schools, companies, but also at major events such as conferences or sporting events.” Two of the corona noses are provided by the UN security service, the third by the Swiss army. This dog is a Malinois – those in charge of the military have not yet revealed more. (bih)
