At Miami's international airport, a pilot programme is currently in progress in which two Covid-19 sniffer dogs are being deployed. They are checking employees of American Airlines in a safety inspection for coronavirus.
The dogs have a detection rate of 96 to 99 per cent and learn quickly, according to several media reports. If successful, the system may also be extended to busier parts of the airport.
