NATF appeals for support of research on SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus in wastewater

In an advisory note, the National Academy of Technologies of France (NATF) considers it important to advance knowledge on the evolution, removal, inactivation and transfer of viruses in wastewater and their transfer to the environment, and in particular on SARS-CoV-2, in order to adapt strategies for disinfection and the use of treated wastewater. It stresses that such research will contribute to the understanding of the current pandemic and future epidemics and their progression.
