Best practice for wastewater epidemiology
Fifty experts have collaborated to produce best practice advice for wastewater surveillance to detect the genetic signal of SARS-CoV-2, a technique which is rapidly evolving but has been shown in tests to be am effective in acting as an early indicator of disease emergence and helping track disease prevalence in order to support risk management. The advice includes how to design systems for collection and preservation of samples, how to quantify the SARS-CoV-2 signal, and research opportunities.
