Look for Our Upcoming COVID-19 Publication
It is an understatement to say that the COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll across the globe. In response, we’ve recently been applying our expertise in geospatial analysis and modeling to investigate SARS-CoV-2 viral load in wastewater and surface waters. We provide a unique tool for wastewater-based epidemiology in assessing COVID-19 and forecasting changes due its spread across communities. This study is the first of its kind to provide national-scale quantitative data to examine movement and fate of residual RNA fragments as well as the efficiency of wastewater treatment plants in removing the virus. Stay tuned for the release of our collaborative publication.
