1,500 spectators for Miami home games
Corona infections and exposures have affected the early days of the NBA. Several games have had to be postponed because the teams have not had enough players fit to play.
Of the teams, the Miami Heat announced Friday local time that it plans to bring so-called corona dogs to the games to sniff the public for possible infections, news channel CBS, among others, reports.
The team has announced that starting Thursday next week, and it plans to let a limited number of 1,500 spectators into its home games. In addition to corona dogs, the auditorium’s corona safety measures also include, for example, the mandatory use of a face mask and taking care of safety gaps.
Miami lost their Friday game to the Toronto Raptors in the numbers 81-101.
Coron dogs have also been tried in Helsinki-Vantaa Airport, for example, in Finland. In December, U.S. news channel CNN reported a study that dogs could be trained to smell the coronavirus in human sweat.
Although the dogs monitored in the study successfully identified people carrying the virus, they should only be used as a compliment, the study found.
