COVID-19 has impacted many lives and we are still in the midst of overcoming this malicious spread which has infected more than 100 million and caused death to 2.24 million worldwide to date. Wastewater-based COVID-19 surveillance has been implemented in many countries to compliment clinical testing to better assess and activate control measures.
The e-workshop on Wastewater-Based COVID-19 Surveillance organized by NUS Environmental Research Institute (NERI) at National University of Singapore has gathered experts, professionals and practitioners who have implemented wastewater-based COVID-19 surveillance to share their knowledge and experience on planning, implementation, reporting and analysis. The target outcome would enhance wastewater-based COVID-19 surveillance capability and hasten measures to control the spread of COVID-19 in universities and community living. The knowledge and experience would be particularly useful to academia, estate management, and municipal and health authority to initiate the planning and execution, or to improve existing testing programme. This workshop also allows interested individuals to understand how wastewater-based COVID-19 surveillance is being carried out.
I cordially invite you and your colleagues to the e-workshop on Wastewater-Based COVID-19 Surveillance.
