DEFIANCE, OH - A statewide effort in Ohio to track COVID-19 through fecal matter has expanded to Defiance. The state department has started collecting samples from the city's water pollution control treatment plant.
The process to track COVID-19 cases through wastewater was first attempted in Europe. The process of testing wastewater doesn't target a single household, instead it reportedly gives an illustration of the cases in a community.
Wastewater testing was not invented during the COVID-19 pandemic. Governments have sampled water to get an idea of what is in waste in other situations.
