The media representatives present explained that the hit rate of the four-legged friends should be checked in terms of virus detection.
“I would like to thank the Vienna Boys’ Choir on behalf of the Armed Forces for supporting us in training our corona detection dogs. At the same time, however, they are also making a contribution to combating the pandemic. Only together can we contain the coronavirus,” stressed Tanner during her visit .
Sängerknaben-President Gerald Wirth emphasized the importance of regular testing for the choir: “We are therefore happy about the cooperation with the armed forces – the PCR tests would not be affordable for us as a non-profit organization. Nice that the test for training the corona detection dogs is used.”
