Sewage Surveillance

Working with a multidisciplinary team Prof. Eran Friedler from the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering has developed a methodology to trace COVID-19 through sewage and wastewater systems in Israel. The monitoring of excrement gives data on where the genetic material of the virus is found and is being used as an early warning method. COVID-19 can show up in excrement up to three days before symptoms appear in humans.
