SUEZ has been awarded a contract for COVID-19 School Sewage Surveillance in the United Kingdom as part of an important new project, known as TERM*, that is looking for traces of COVID-19 in the wastewater of schools. Ten primary and secondary schools, located all across the UK, will be involved in the project, ramping up to 70 schools by December 2020.
The research is funded by the NHS Test and Trace Surveillance Testing Team. Middlesex University is leading the study in collaboration with Test and Trace’s Joint Biosecurity Centre and researchers from Cranfield University, the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, University of Bath, Imperial College London, and University College London.
Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, SUEZ has been mobilized throughout the world to ensure the continuity of essential water and waste services for local authorities, industries and citizens. The Group is committed to the fight against the spread of the Covid-19 especially by developing scientific research to monitor the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 in wastewater networks. This research led to the launch of the “City Watch Covid-19" offer, which is already operational in 15 municipalities in Spain, and currently deployed in France, the United States, India and Chile.
