Making Waves: Coronavirus detection, presence and persistence in the water environment: State of the art and knowledge needs for public health

This paper provides another review of the published scientific literature on coronaviruses in water (including wastewater, environmental waters and drinking water). The focus, in this case, is on the survival of viable infectious virions in these environments, very much from a public health perspective. A key observation is that there have been very few studiesContinue reading “Making Waves: Coronavirus detection, presence and persistence in the water environment: State of the art and knowledge needs for public health”

Coronavirus in water environments: Occurrence, persistence and concentration methods – A scoping review

This paper is a literature review of existing knowledge regarding coronaviruses in water environments such as wastewater and drinking water. As such, it confirms much of what, by now, is fairly well known (and most of the key reviewed papers have also been described on this blog). But systematic reviews are valuable for the confidenceContinue reading “Coronavirus in water environments: Occurrence, persistence and concentration methods – A scoping review”
