Messiness #4

Wimbledon is over for me. It’s not just Andy’s loss but also Emma. She didn’t look her usual self yesterday, as though she wasn’t ‘in the zone’, there was no spark in her play, although she tried to make a fight of it the willingness just wasn’t there for me. I’ve not much interest in the rest of this tennis event.

Sewage water treatment can be used to find out what viruses or other illness may be in the community. Who Knew? Apparently this monitoring has been done for many years. I started to hear about it with Sars-Cov-2 and more recently with polio being detected. When they find stuff like this in the main treatment plant indicating an area of a town where the infection might be, the authorities then have to look more closely at sub treatment plants to try and define the area more closely. Once that’s done they can target the streets feeding into that plant and start checking people in houses and other buildings – proper track and trace type stuff.
