[Conversation #2] – How has wastewater monitoring helped the fight against Covid-19 (and other infectious diseases)?

S01 / E02 - 05 Dec 2023

View transcript

Wastewater surveillance and its use in determining the status quo of the health situation gained particular prominence during the COVID-19 pandemic. It has proven to be an effective tool for gathering timely and valuable intelligence regardless of people's behaviour (such as their willingness to get tested, for example) and interventions (such as the implementation of containment measures). What does wastewater monitoring involve? Would such a surveillance mechanism help predict the next pandemic?
We spoke to Dr Leslie Ogorzaly, senior researcher within the Environmental Research and Innovation department at LIST, to try to answer these questions.
