  • New Study from UC San Diego for Covid-19 Wastewater Surveillance
    by [email protected]
    A Study from UC San Diego Shows Covid-19 Can Be Detected In A Single Asymptomatic Person Through Wastewater Surveillance even if that person is living or working in a multi-unit dwelling. Wastewater surveillance can detect a case up to 3 to 4 days before individual testing can. Wastewater surveillance is an underused yet cost-effective, non-invasive mass testing strategy.
