Sensitive SARS-CoV-2 Monitoring of Wastewater

Sensitive SARS-CoV-2 Monitoring of Wastewater

Screening of wastewater for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 has the potential to become an attractive tool for COVID-19 management. Screening wastewater for SARS-CoV-2 is being examined as a regional tool for the analysis of:

  • Snapshots – an early warning system identifying if the coronavirus has reached an area
  • Trends – an increase or decrease in infected people determined by measuring viral loads
  • Hotspots – identification of infection hotspots where resources should be focused
  • Prevalence – get a broad understanding of the number of infected people in the area
