‘UNA SALUD / ONE HEALTH Epidemiology: Coronavirus in wastewater of selected towns of Ecuador'.
This project aims to carry out a diagnosis to detect the coronavirus in wastewater from selected cities in Ecuador. The SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, which causes COVID-19, can be transmitted through the digestive system and could end up in the aquatic ecosystem environment.
The results will help local authorities plan for COVID-19 before symptoms of the disease appear, and save lives.
Those interested in participating in this project, please contact Mrs. Miriam Alcivar Arteaga (firstname.lastname@example.org), President of FUCOBI, who will be in charge of coordinating the sampling
