Florida International University dogs sniff out COVID at airport (includes video story)

Miami has become the first city in the United States to use COVID-sniffing dogs to help detect the virus at the airport.
If dogs — that are trained at Florida International University — detect the virus on someone, that person will be asked to take a rapid COVID test.
The two COVID-sniffing dogs, Cobra and OneBetta, have been more than 99 percent accurate at detecting the virus in their training.
Airport authorities are expected to extend their program for another 30 days.
