NIAID Scientists and Colleagues Consider Wastewater as a Potential Route of Ebola Virus Exposure
NIAID scientists and colleagues from the University of Pittsburgh and Drexel University report that Ebola virus, used in high doses for their study, is detectable in treated sewage. Though 99 percent of the virus is killed within a day, molecular testing detected trace amounts of viable virus for up to a week. Scientists do not know how much viable Ebola virus is shed by Ebola patients in their bodily fluids, but they deem the risk of becoming infected low.
