The planet is in trouble. Humanity’s health is in trouble. One of the main ways the environment is telling us this is in the information we can glean from waste water systems. Monitoring our waste water has massive implications on human health and on environmental health. By having the ability to detect covid and lots of other pathogens (neuro virus, influenza, etc) in our water and wastewater, the benefits to society, governments, public health bodies, etc are endless.
