  1. Let me get this straight….dogs can sniff-out covid, but scientists cannot isolate the virus?!

    1. isolate it yourself then smarty. All you can do is sit behind the screen, be ungrateful and teach experts their job. Go finish highschool

    2. “dogs can sniff-out covid, but scientists cannot isolate the virus?!”
      The virus has been isolated, what are you talking about?

    1. still better than getting an anal swab what a phallus shaped q-tip and the word “government” on said q-tip.

  2. The Washington Post states that multiple studies have found that drug-dogs have high error rates. Some analyses suggest the dogs are correct around 50 percent of the time. This places their accuracy as about the same as a coin toss.

    And your going to use a 50/50 to diagnose patients so a bunch of false positives.

  3. If that’s true, expect Canadumbistan to start investing in dogs and their training in about 2 years from now.

  4. Why not?

    I can’t imagine the accuracy of this “test” being any worse than the current PCR testing.

    1. What are you talking about? Did you listen to some Facebook-esq nonsense stating that PCR testing for Covid isn’t accurate?

  5. Expect a multi-million dollar contract to a Quebec company for the supply of Covid sniffing dogs.

  6. My dog can already do that. You just wrap the sample you want him to id as positive in bacon and BANG! He’ll find it every time!
