Alhama will carry out analyzes of its residual waters for the detection of Covid-19 (23/07/2020)

The Alhama City Council is going to carry out tests to detect the Covid-19 virus in the municipal wastewater, through a PCR test (Polymerase Chain Reaction), at the entrance of the treatment plants of the entire municipality . The sampling will be weekly, varying the period depending on the results obtained and the information from the Ministry of Health.The treatment plants involved in this study are the following:WWTP Alhama.WWTP El Berro.WWTP El Cañarico.WWTP Gebas.WWTP Alhama County.This study could lead to the creation of an early warning system where signs of Covid-19, viruses present in wastewater, would be detected in population groups, being able to act quickly on the area for the isolation of cases.


In this way, contagions or even new relapses would be avoided.In addition, it could allow early detection of the virus and help in public health strategies to implement possible prevention measures.
