IWA Webinar: COVID-19: Wastewater-based Epidemiology

Long Term Experience and Health Significance of Virus Detection in Wastewater Wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) has recently gained global attention, since scientific reports indicate that the concentration of SARS-CoV-2 in wastewater is proportional to the number of COVID-19 patients in a sewershed. The study of viruses excreted in wastewater is not new and very valuable information has been obtained from other viruses in the past, analysing their molecular epidemiology and the geographical distribution. This experience can be reviewed as a reference for the analysis of the data that is being produced on SARS-CoV-2 in wastewater and for designing future strategies for the study of the epidemiology of COVID-19 and other viral infections. This webinar has been organized by the IWA Specialist Group on Health-Related Water Microbiology (HRWM SG) and the IWA … Continue reading IWA Webinar: COVID-19: Wastewater-based Epidemiology
