Webinar Summary


The COVIDPoops19 global dashboard of wastewater monitoring sites, universities, and dashboards won the AAEES 2021 E3S Grand Prize in University Research. Wastewater Based Epidemiology (WBE) was used before for other pathogens, but the field has grown exponentially with the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVIDPoops19 dashboard and Twitter account have been instrumental in tracking these efforts and facilitating global coordination now in 58 countries, over 3,200 sites, 273 universities, and 105 dashboards. In this webinar we will discuss the origins of the dashboard, temporal and equity analysis, and evolution into a global data center, Wastewater SARS Public Health Environmental REsponse (W-SPHERE).
