CORONASTEP Report 85 (Week 27) SARS-CoV-2 Sewage Surveillance in Luxembourg

This report 85 presents the results of SARS-CoV-2 contamination of wastewater at the entrance of the 13 wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) analysed during the week 26 of 2021. The WWTPs of Hespérange, Boevange, Echternach, Grevenmacher and Uebersyren were analysed only once this week.

The SARS-CoV-2 RNA flux measured in wastewater treatment plants shows a high national prevalence of the virus, with a SARS-CoV-2 flux between 2 and 3 x 1011 RNA copies per day per 100,000 equivalent-inhabitants. The overall contamination level of the week is therefore very similar to that observed at the end of the previous week.

Comparable trends are observed at the level of the individual treatment plants.

Next analysis will confirm this result.
