Newswise: Germany-Wide Pilot Project for Coronavirus Detection in Wastewater

Germany-Wide Pilot Project for Coronavirus Detection in Wastewater
Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)

Coronaviruses can be detected in wastewater some days before first disease symptoms develop. On this basis, it is possible to determine the number of infections more quickly, analyze the infection situation more precisely, and identify new Covid-19 variants and their spread at an earlier stage. The project “Systematic Monitoring of SARS-CoV-2 in Wastewater” coordinated by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) now plans to leverage these potentials and to find out whether and how a wastewater-based Covid-19 early warning system can be implemented in Germany. The project is funded by the European Union with about EUR 3.7 million.

Modeling COVID-19 Data Must Be Done With Extreme Care
American Institute of Physics (AIP)

As the virus causing COVID-19 began its devastating spread, an international team of scientists was alarmed by the lack of uniform approaches by various countries’ epidemiologists. Data modeling to predict the numbers of likely infections varied widely and revealed a high degree of uncertainty. In the journal Chaos, the group describes why modeling and extrapolating the evolution of COVID-19 outbreaks in near real time is an enormous scientific challenge that requires a deep understanding of the nonlinearities underlying the dynamics of epidemics.
