The scientist also explained why the researchers wanted to work with animals, and how dogs can be useful in the fight against coronavirus infection. Logan believes that diseases have their own peculiar smells, and COVID-19 is probably no exception. He expressed confidence that the dog will be able to recognize infectious disease by smell, thanks to the well-developed sense of smell.

In addition, it is argued that these animals can feel and respond to temperature changes in the human body.

It is noted that dogs are involved in the detection of such diseases as malaria, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and cancer.
