COVID-19 levels look to be declining in some Louisville wastewater
Samples taken from wastewater collection sites around Jefferson County could be showing early signs of a drop in overall COVID-19 infection in the area.
Ted Smith, director at U of L’s Center for Healthy Air, Water and Soil at the school’s Christina Lee Brown Envirome Institute, said some of the most recent samples may be showing the start of a decline, although it will take several days to get a clearer picture.
“There are signs that infection could be receding,” Smith said. “It’s not a done deal, it’s not a slam dunk, but there are certainly signs in the data.”
