Wastewater Tests Show An Increase In COVID In Sask.

Two of the three Saskatchewan cities which have their wastewater tested for COVID-19 have seen large increases in the last testing period. USask toxicologist and researcher Dr. Markus Brinkmann says Saskatoon’s wastewater virus local has increased 127 per cent in the last testing period which was September 3rd to the 8th. The results from North Battleford’s most recent testing period include a 560 per cent increase in the viral load, while Prince Albert is seeing a 50 per cent decrease. Dr. Brinkmann says the two smaller centres have had more ups and downs in their testing numbers, which he believes may be because of visitors to the communities having more of an impact because they have smaller
populations.
