Interview G.J. Medema - Dr Medema (KWR): "The pandemic has boosted the use of wastewater as a mirror of society"
“Environmental surveillance by testing wastewater for evidence of pathogens has long been used. Last year, this method was adopted around the world for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 shed into wastewater and certain areas, such as the Netherlands, has incorporated daily sewage surveillance into its national COVID-19 monitoring. To find out how wastewater-based epidemiology has progressed in the past year, we spoke with Dr Gertjan Medema, Principal Microbiologist at KWR, whom we had spoken to a little less than a year ago.”
