Call for Papers: Wastewater Surveillance and Community Pathogen Detection

Detection of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2), in wastewater has the potential to be utilized as a valuable epidemiologic surveillance tool for tracking the spread and impact of COVID-19. Wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) has gained attention in several countries including Australia, Spain, France, Singapore, U.S., Italy, Netherlands, Israel, Turkey, Japan, India, and China.

From epidemiological point of view, it is imperative to understand the effectiveness of vaccination and monitor the reemergence of COVID-19. This Special Issue from ACS ES&T Water on WBE and COVID-19 aims to collect insightful reviews and research articles on wastewater-based epidemiology- environmental surveillance, survival, and fate of SARS-CoV-2 and other enteric viruses in natural and engineered water systems.
