The method, which was discovered by Indian scientists to prevent coronavirus, needs to be adopted not only in India but all over the world, said a foreign scientist.
Gandhinagar, January 06: Various forms of coronavirus are emerging around the world. Since then, various researches on corona are also underway. Research on corona is underway in many organizations around the world, and new information is emerging. New research has recently revealed that the corona virus stays in the air for 2 hours and now we can understand the symptoms of corona 2 weeks in advance. This new research shows that by monitoring waste water, you will notice the corona outbreak 2 weeks earlier.
Scientists at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT Gandhinagar) in Gandhinagar, Gujarat, have made this claim in their research. The research was conducted in collaboration with the Gujarat Pollution Control Board (GPCB) and is in the journal of the Environmental Research Institute. The research team also included scientists from the Gujarat Biotechnology Research Center (GBRC).
According to the study, they carried out cases of SARS-CoV-2 (Corona virus) in the wastewater in Gandhinagar and cases of Covid 19. The researchers found the SARS-CoV-2 virus in 40 of the 43 samples taken. The research is based on a study conducted in Ahmedabad in May last year in which the corona virus was first detected in sewage. In this research, scientists took 43 samples of this wastewater between August 7 and September 30 last year. The samples were taken twice a week. In a study of these samples, researchers found the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Speaking to PTI, Manish Kumar, Professor and Head of Research, Department of Earth Sciences, IIT Gandhinagar, who was involved in the research, said: We will inform the authorities about this soon.
This new research is going to be very helpful in preventing corona. Corona’s fight also needs to include a method of monitoring sewage. Meanwhile, Prasoon Bhattacharya, a professor at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden, said the method needs to be adopted to prevent corona not only in India but all over the world.

“In this research, we also found the SARS-CoV-2 virus in sewage in patients,” said Errol Bevins of the University of Notre Dame. So we can check whether the people in the area are infected by checking the samples in the area where there is a lot of sewage.
