Does It Smell Like COVID?

It’s rare to see a COVID-related photo that’s uplifting, heartwarming and aww-inspiring. Look for the photo and caption about a little dog, Floki. Scientists are training sniffer dogs to detect signs of coronavirus in human sweat. In one airport trial sniffer dogs were able to detect the presence of the virus with close to 100% accuracy. In fewer than ten seconds.

I wonder if man’s best friend could have helped in past pandemics?

My book, VACCINES & BAYONETS, is headed toward possible release this coming March. If you’d like to help it have a great cover and plenty of photos and maps, you can contribute on my GoFundMe page.
