Cavid K-9S: The first dog in the country to dry coronavirus

The Bristol County Sheriff’s Office may be the first law enforcement department in the country to use dogs to detect coronavirus.

Sheriff Thomas Hudson said the idea for the initiative began when a friend saw him on television about the Florida International University Forensic Research Institute, which used a program to detect fungi in crops and adapted it to COVID-19 detection.

Hodgson came in contact with the FIU, whose researchers used an ultraviolet system in which the infectious part of the mask was worn by KVID-positive patients but left a smell of coronavirus, making it safe for dogs and their handlers to use as training equipment.

“Dogs are man’s best friend for many reasons, and he’s one of them,” said Capt. Paul Douglas, one of the program’s two handlers, as he slapped his 9-month-old Labrador retriever hunter (Think Hunter) with a Boston accent.

Douglas and Hantah and his other K-9s – Deputy Sheriffs Teddy Santos and Duke – have completed nine weeks of training that will primarily be used to detect the coronavirus in locations – such as nursing homes, schools, concert venues and cells – supervised by the prison sheriff’s office. Can be done.

On Friday, the four of them gave a preview of what they would do to the media.

He walked to the sheriff’s office to go to the duke, his tongue was growing long, his tail was tingling, Santos was ready to take on the responsibility he had been given: go and find the secret

The 9-month-old Labrador recovery-mix smoothed around the room, past tables and chairs, until he reached a fridge, where a 1-inch piece of mask that was worn by a man was carefully placed on the back of a COVID-19 handle with a tiny plaster. Was tapped. He suddenly looked at the fridge and then sat down, his signal to Santos that he had done his job.

“Good boy!” The deputy throws a ball for him as his reward.

Kenneth Farton, a professor of chemistry and biochemistry at FIU, said he and his research team used four dogs to detect COVD in 121 training tests with 98.8% accuracy.

“Dogs are at least a few thousand times more sensitive to odors than humans, depending on the odor,” Furton said, which is why police use them to search for missing persons and other items to identify drugs and explosives.

He and his research team were also able to confirm that dogs can detect the stench of epilepsy just minutes before an epileptic space, give the person time to take medication, or at least get to a place where they can’t fall, he said.
