About the Project

Care homes for older people experienced high levels of infection and death during the COVID-19 pandemic, and it is now recognized that these health care facilities were largely forgotten about and poorly resourced. This project will determine if prevalence of SARS CoV-2 and influenza in this setting can be measured using waste water-based epidemiology and near-site testing/tracking with a view to development of appropriate infection control interventions.
