null Webinar: Wastewater Surveillance

Webinar: Wastewater Surveillance for COVID-19 and Other Infectious Diseases

Wastewater surveillance can be a low-cost tool compared to massive diagnostic testing for tracking COVID-19 and other infectious diseases in communities.  Wastewater surveillance can facilitate rapid public health response because specific geographic areas/populations with emerging cases can be tracked and immediate action can be executed in the event of a positive wastewater signal.  This webinar will include an overview of wastewater surveillance applications and describe case studies of wastewater surveillance approaches in Atlanta, Georgia, Accra, Ghana, and Kolkata, India.
