SARS-CoV-2 RNA concentrations in primary municipal sewage sludge as a leading indicator of COVID-19 outbreak dynamics

There are now rapidly increasing numbers of (non-peer reviewed) pre-prints and (peer-reviewed) published papers describing the application of wastewater-based epidemiology for COVID-19. This involves measuring the presence of SARS-CoV-2 RNA in municipal wastewater (sewage) and using those measurements to infer spatial and temporal patterns of infection in the community. Some of the most high profileContinue reading “SARS-CoV-2 RNA concentrations in primary municipal sewage sludge as a leading indicator of COVID-19 outbreak dynamics”
