Wastewater Test Could Predict COVID-19 Spread

News

Researchers are working on a new test to detect SARS-CoV-2 in the wastewater of communities infected with the virus. The wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) approach could provide an effective and rapid way to predict the spread of COVID-19 by detecting biomarkers in faeces and urine from disease carriers that enter the sewer system.
