New Paper: First confirmed detection of SARS-CoV-2 in untreated wastewater in Australia: A proof of concept for the wastewater surveillance of COVID-19 in the community

There has been some recent attention surrounding the potential to use molecular (i.e., RNA) detections of SARS-CoV-2 (the causative agent of COVID-19) in wastewater to track community prevalence. This approach, often termed Wastewater Based Epidemiology (WBE), has some potential advantages to case-by-case tracking, including improved throughput at the community level and tracking asymptomatic cases.
