Detection and Surveillance of SARS-CoV-2 and Emerging Pathogens in the Environment
Detection of SARS-CoV-2 in air and wastewater is a crucial part of a robust surveillance program enabling public health authorities to manage and implement control measures. Such programs are essential for rapid control and prevention of current and future threats.
The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic is a reminder of the particular danger of airborne pathogens and the importance of early detection and containment. Understanding the modes of airborne virus transmission through aerosols, liquid droplets, and contaminated contact surfaces, is essential in establishing the effectiveness of viral spread.
