National Wastewater Epidemiology Surveillance Programme

N-WESP brings together scientists and collaborators from 23 organisations looking into the presence and infectivity of COVID-19 in wastewater. This research will help develop wastewater surveillance methods and findings could help identify future disease hotspots across the UK. This programme is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) as part of the UK Research and Innovation’s rapid response to COVID-19.
