Fans will be sniffing dog sniffing in the screening area upon arrival at the gym. If a fan is identified with the virus, the sniffing dog will sit in front of the fan, and the fan will not enter.

Viewers who are afraid of dogs or allergic to dogs will be tested for rapid antigens, and the results will be available within 45 minutes.

The Miami Heat have been preparing for months to introduce sniffing dogs in some previous games this season.

However, those games are only allowed to watch a small number of guests, most of whom are the family and friends of the players and staff.

Starting this week, the Miami Heat’s home game will be open to a limited number of ticket buyers, and the 28th game will be the first game open.

Tickets for the Miami Heat sold out for 451 consecutive games. Under the epidemic, each game will receive a maximum of 2,000 spectators, less than one-tenth of the stadium capacity.

“Sniffer dogs are not new, and they have been used to sniff explosives in the gym for many years,” said Matthew Jafarian, the Miami Heat’s head of corporate strategy.

The researchers found that specially trained dogs can quickly and accurately sniff out the COVID-19 carried by the human body.”

Reuters previously reported, citing research data, trained dogs can identify people infected with COVID-19 with more than 85% accuracy, or even close to 100%.

The United Arab Emirates, Finland, Chile and other countries have arranged sniffing dogs to detect people infected with COVID-19 at airports.
