Upon arriving at the airport, passengers have to wipe their necks to collect sweat samples and leave it on a box where dog trainers collect it, putting the box beside different scents, and the dog gets to work by making a sound when they detect one.

Researchers say dogs have a particularly sharp sense of smell that proves a cheaper, faster, and effective way. The sniffer dogs can detect it by smelling urine or sweat samples and an asymptomatic person or before the symptoms appear, and an ill person who has cancer and malaria.
