Are dogs the answer to fast and accurate coronavirus screening? IPVM reviewed studies conducted in Chile, Finland, France, Germany, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and the United States that are evaluating using dogs for coronavirus screening.

IPVM examines the tradeoffs in this approach to detecting coronavirus.

Update: This report has been updated as more countries trial using canines for screening.
