Glanerbrugs sewage water full of corona, should residents be concerned now? | Coronavirus


GLANER BRIDGE – The largest amount of corona virus in the whole of Twente has been found in the sewage water from Glanerbrug. Yet nowhere the alarm bells go off. How is that possible?

1278 virus particles in a milliliter of water: they were found on Thursday in a sample of the water in the treatment plant in Glanerbrug. It is the highest number in Twente, where the Vechtstromen water board checks sewage water in a total of 17 places.

By way of comparison: Haaksbergen, where there was a relatively large corona outbreak in recent weeks, contained 1,183 particles in a milliliter of sewage water on the same day. The average in Twente is currently 448.

Nobody does anything

Yet no one is currently looking at Glanerbrug with above-average attention. Why not? After a search, the answer is as simple as it is unsatisfactory. RIVM does not yet know exactly what conclusions can be drawn from the sewerage surveys.

Despite the fact that they write the following on their own website: ‘Sewage research is a valuable tool for quickly identifying and intervening in a possible revival of the virus.’ Should Glanerbruggers be worried or not?
