This dashboard reveals the change in SARS-CoV-2 over time, by displaying the ratio of SARS-CoV-2 genes in human fecal waste. As detection ranges rise, the development line may even rise indicating will increase in detection.
*Please observe that some wastewater therapy vegetation solely use one of many two detection strategies. If the SARS-CoV-2 Depth graph seems clean for a given therapy plant, please test the Gene Copies chart for added information.
Depth ratio of SARS-CoV-2 detected
To raised perceive the quantity of SARS-CoV-2 detected in wastewater, a population-adjusted ratio is used – SARS-CoV-2 gene fragments detected, divided by the overall human fecal indicator within the pattern. The human fecal indicator is the overall quantity of waste coming into the sewer system. This worth permits for comparability of 1 SARS-CoV-2 RNA pattern to a different, and is an efficient indicator for the way a lot SARS-CoV-2 virus may be transmitting locally.
SARs-CoV-2 Genes Detected in Wastewater
This plot reveals the common variety of SARS-CoV-2 gene copies detected in every pattern of wastewater. Gene copies are used to find out the two-week development at sampling websites that don’t acquire fecal indicator information. Detection ranges will be grouped primarily based on three classes:
- Measured: The precise detection degree recognized by the laboratory within the wastewater, This means larger ranges of SARS-CoV-2 and higher infections locally.
- Estimated: The estimated detection degree the place SARs-COV-2 genes are current however too low to measure in wastewater. This means fewer infections locally
- No-Detect: When no SARs-CoV-2 gene copies are detected in a pattern.
