Researchers then set up samples from 1,000 people at random, ordered the dogs to pinpoint the infected ones — and found the animals were accurate 94 percent of the time, according to the study.
Not only are they cute and cuddly but dog's are capable of doing so much more if we pay attention. Here is an article on their ability to sniff out the pandemic with numbers that outdo the current tests we use. Just imagine if streamlined this kind of detection system. It would make so much possible!

Previously, dogs have been used to detect cancer, etc with excellent accuracy. We haven't really, in practical terms, used that yet. I guess it doesn't really suit our current medical system; maybe a new system would be better able to handle such innovations? We can hope! They are used in some places, eg children's cancer wards, as companions.

I heard second-hand that dogs are also affected by the virus, hence why the sniff dogs have their own style of masks.
