Working with a team of Ohio State researchers, Ohio Water Resources Center Associate Director Zuzana Bohrerova provides data collected at wastewater treatment facilities to public health officials. Bohrerova and her colleagues intend for this data to be a valuable resource for communities' fight against the pandemic as it can help predict where local COVID-19 hot spots may appear next.

 

Dr. Boherova and other Ohio State researchers discussed their efforts in this recently-aired story on WBNS-10TV in Columbus. Watch the clip by clicking on the image below:
