DOGS, COVID AND THE HELSINKI AIRPORT.

DOGS, COVID AND THE HELSINKI AIRPORT.

No surprise to me that the Helsinki Airport is now using dogs to sniff out the virus.

“WHAT” you say, “we have all this technology. “Okay” I say, “but how about this technology with 4 legs and a tail?”

A dog needs to smell ONLY 10 molecules of Covid to instantly detect it and the high tech machine need 18,000 molecules and a few hours.

A dog has 220 million scent receptors. Their sense of smell is 10,000 times a human. They can sniff out substances diluted to one part per TRILLION. They can tell the difference between diseases from cancer to maleria. A high tech machine costs millions. A box of dog treats about $2.50 and that includes all the licks and tail wags for free. Wow talk about what we all need more of. DOGS. The most miraculous beings on earth.
