The University of Veterinary and Animal Science (UVAS) Emerging Pathogens Biosafety Level 3 Laboratory has detected the SARS-CoV-2 genome from urine and fecal samples and sewage from 19 COVID patients to develop an intelligent COVID-19 A community-level monitoring strategy may help to better perform intelligent locking.
This preliminary study was carried out in cooperation with the Punjab health care department in collaboration with the Lahore Institute of Public Health to further strengthen the government’s efforts to combat COVID-19.
Intelligent wastewater monitoring of the COVID-19 pathogen genome may reveal the actual COVID-19 burden in places where underreporting and address fraud are expected. It will also help to perform a smart lock better. The SARS-CoV-2 genome in sewage only indicates the burden of COVID-19 in specific areas. However, it cannot show whether the virus is infectious or non-infectious.
The president Dr. Nasim Ahmad called the research another important contribution of the UVAS BSL-3 laboratory. He thanked Dr. Tahir Yaqub and his team for launching this research activity. He reiterated that UVAS is committed to contributing its greatest strength to the government’s efforts to combat coronavirus.
