CORONASTEP Report 80 (Week 24) SARS-CoV-2 Sewage Surveillance in Luxembourg

This report 80 presents the results of SARS-CoV-2 contamination of wastewater at the entrance of the 13 wastewater treatment plants analysed during the week 24 of 2021.

The SARS-CoV-2 RNA flux measured in wastewater treatment plants shows a moderate national prevalence of the virus. The flux has around 6 to 7 x 1010 RNA copies per day per 100,000 equivalent-inhabitants, with a continuing downward trend for several weeks.

At the individual wastewater treatment plant scale, the trend is similar with most of the plants having a SARSCoV-2 flux near the detection limit of the assay, or even below.
