November 27, 2020

This week Water Research Australia's ColoSSoS Project Director, Dr Kelly Hill, spoke about national sewage surveillance for COVID-19 with ABC News 24.

Kelly explains how sewage testing works and how it is carried out nationwide. She notes how results can come back as early as 12 hours and how shedding continues weeks after a person tests positive for COVID-19. She also shared how the Victorian Government acted fast on sewage samples that tested positive for COVID-19 and how they closed the borders to discontinue its spread.
