Detection and quantification of SARS-CoV-2 levels in wastewater can be a useful predictor of potential COVID-19 outbreaks. However, the interpretation of the surveillance data can be challenging. Join us as our panel of experts discuss the use of wastewater surveillance for SARS-CoV-2 for different communities and how that data is being used for early detection and risk mitigation.
The panel will also share their thoughts on what role wastewater-based epidemiology will play in the COVID-19 pandemic post-vaccination.
Topics to be covered in the discussion include:
- Benefits and challenges of wastewater-based epidemiology
- How different communities are leveraging monitoring data
- The importance of biomarker and control selection
- How cross-community datasets can be leveraged for post-vaccine disease monitoring
