Water Research and Environmental Biotechnology Laboratory (WREB) of RTU together with partners already developed methods and prove that it is possible to monitor wastewaters and detect the virus presence. Research takes place within the framework of the program “Multidisciplinary approach to monitoring, control and control of COVID19 and other future epidemics in Latvia” (COV-MITIGATE) funded by the State Research program for Mitigation of Consequences of Covid-19.

Water Research and Environmental Biotechnology Laboratory (WREB) of RTU together with partners realise the project “Multidisciplinary approach to monitoring, control and control of COVID19 and other future epidemics in Latvia” (COV-MITIGATE) funded by State Research programme for Mitigation of Consequences of Covid-19. The overall aim of the project is to develop system for effective Covid-19 and other possible epidemics monitoring, mitigation and limitation using a multidisciplinary approach. The Project is led by Uga Dumpis.
The WREB is responsible for implementation of wastewater based epidemiology approach in Latvia.
More information on the project and partners available here.
The second meeting of the partners of the project “Integration of safe technologies for protection against Covid-19 in health care and high-risk areas” implemented within the framework of the national research program was organized by the Institute of Electronics and Computer Science on the last Friday of August.
Work package managers and sub-taskers gave presentations on the work done, informing about the results achieved, follow-up actions and involving partners in discussions for better results.
