Sewage surveillance for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 genome as a useful wastewater based epidemiology (WBE) tracking tool in India

21-Oct-2020
Any uncertain global epidemic comes with a solution that requires a thorough assessment and investigation. Today, everyone across the globe is suffering from a major pandemic that caused significant damage to almost every sector of the country. As we all know that there is always a hidden opportunity in a difficult situation.

The research group of Dr. B. Lal institute of Biotechnology also found an opportunity to serve the nation by conducting a research study on “Sewage surveillance for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 genome as a useful wastewater based epidemiology (WBE) tracking tool in India”.This research work done is underway and probably the first one to be started in India which showed the detectable presence of SARS-CoV-2 genome in the untreated wastewater samples, while the treated wastewater did not show the presence of the viral load. The research article has been cited in many research papers and it gives us immense pleasure to share that the research gained the attention in the magazine “Down to Earth” which focuses on environment and development assisted by Centre for Science and Environment is known to report relevant scientific findings.
