Funding secured for coronavirus airport dogs
An initial batch of 16 dogs will be trained in detecting coronavirus at Helsinki Airport test centres.
Private funding has been secured to cover the costs of training sniffer dogs to detect coronavirus infections at Helsinki Airport.
Evidensia Eläinlääkäripalvelut, a nationwide network of veterinary clinics and hospitals, has announced plans to pay for the training of 16 dogs.
“As the coronavirus testing queues are only getting longer and the situation is getting worse, we saw it as our obligation to get involved,” the network’s Communications Director, Virpi Perälä, told Yle.
