But we did not go down to a very low level. We did a slightly average level which is quite rather stable during curfew. But in the past ten days or more, it has been back to the upward trend again."

Storyline


An analysis of sewage samples can help monitor the total COVID-19 situation in a region as it contains information about asymptomatic cases which usually wouldn't go for a test, according to a research laboratory in Paris.

In an interview with China Media Group (CMG), Laurent Moulin, who heads the analysis and research laboratory run by the Eau de Paris water company showed the chart of test results from March 2020 which indicates that concentrations of the novel coronavirus genome in wastewater samples closely matched the changes of daily COVID-19 cases in France.

"After France imposed the first national lockdown, we see this increase in the concentration of the viral genome in Greater Paris region. The concentration declined after the second-time lockdown. But we did not go down to a very low level. We did a slightly average level which is quite rather stable during curfew. But in the past ten days or more, it has been back to the upward trend again," said Moulin.

The lab also added the variants of the novel coronavirus found in the UK to the research which also confirmed the accelerated spread of the virus in the greater Paris region.

Compared to data from virus tests, the wastewater sample analysis can provide an earlier sign of virus transmission as it reveals the total situation several days or even weeks in advance through human excrement in domestic wastewater.

"There was always a question about the number of asymptomatic people. Out of all the people who were infected, those who had symptoms would be detected, while those without symptoms would not go for a test and therefore could not be detected in the result feedback. However, based on wastewater, we finally had a good view of the entire population," said Moulin.
