Number two might be the number one way to accurately assess the spread, and ultimately wipe out, Covid-19. “From Stanford to the University of Arizona, from Australia to Paris, teams of researchers have been ramping up wastewater analyses to track the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Initial studies show that sewage monitoring, or ‘wastewater-based-epidemiology,’ could not only tell us how much the virus might actually be spreading in a community — but also when the virus has finally gone away.” In other words, some experts think shit happens to be one of the best ways to answer some of the key questions about the pandemic; and to ultimately assess whether a community has achieved turd immunity. It all gives new meaning to the phrase, Hindsight is 2020. Whether testing sewage will end up being the shit or a waste remains to be seen. Like so many of our efforts, this one is a crap shoot.
