Webinar: Wastewater Surveillance - POCTRN
null Webinar: Wastewater Surveillance
Webinar: Wastewater Surveillance for COVID-19 and Other Infectious Diseases
Wastewater surveillance can be a low-cost tool compared to massive diagnostic testing for tracking COVID-19 and other infectious diseases in communities. Wastewater surveillance can facilitate rapid public health response because specific geographic areas/populations with emerging cases can be tracked and immediate action can be executed in the event of a positive wastewater signal. This webinar will include an overview of wastewater surveillance applications and describe case studies of wastewater surveillance approaches in Atlanta, Georgia, Accra, Ghana, and Kolkata, India.

RADx: Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics (RADxsm) initiative was formed to accelerate the development, validation, and commercialization of innovative point-of-care and home-based tests, as well as improvements to clinical laboratory tests, that can directly detect SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
