Rwanda Sniffer dogs to detect Covid cases

After deploying robots and drones to fight the Covid-19 pandemic, Rwandan health authorities have decided to use trained sniffer dogs to detect people positive for Covid-19.

A memorandum of understanding has just been signed to this effect in Kigali between the Director General of Rwanda Biomedical Center (RBC), Sabin Nsanzimana, and the German Ambassador to Rwanda, Thomas Kurz.

“Odor identification of Covid-19 using dogs” is the new approach that will be adopted in the fight against the pandemic in Rwanda, drawing in particular from the experiences of Germany and Finland.
