USA: Monkeypox detected In San Francisco wastewater
Researchers at the Sewer Coronavirus Alert Network (SCAN) have confirmed that samples of wastewater collected from a San Francisco treatment plant have traces of the Monkeypox virus.
The samples were collected on Monday, June 20th and Thursday, June 23rd from the Oceanside Treatment Plant, which serves about a third of the city of San Francisco.
“With two samples in the same area, we have confidence this is a true result,” said SCAN researcher Alexandria Boehm, professor of civil and environmental engineering at Stanford University.
