Milwaukee COVID wastewater testing dashboard launched
The new dashboard utilizes wastewater data to detect COVID-19 trends ahead of clinical settings, shifting away from monitoring individual cases.
According to a news release, in collaboration with the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD), MHD is conducting COVID-19 testing in wastewater, with results uploaded to the new dashboard. Laboratories can assess the virus's concentration in wastewater based on collection sites (or sewersheds), providing insight into changes in COVID-19 cases.
