Researching COVID-19 Community Markers in Wastewater


Alex MacKenzie is leading a multidisciplinary team to investigate if wastewater biomarkers can identify potential COVID-19 community activity. The measurement of the virus, which is passed fecally, in wastewater represents a single-point metric potentially reflecting a given’s community disease activity. This approach may be particularly important given real supply chain issues limiting population-based COVID 19 screening.
