The City of Calgary is teaming up with the University of Calgary and Alberta Health Services to test the city's wastewater for early signs of COVID-19.

While researchers can find traces of the virus in the wastewater, officials say wastewater does not transmit it.“The virus that causes COVID-19 is excreted in the feces of those who are pre-symptomatic, asymptomatic, as well as those with overt symptoms,” Dr. Michael Parkins from the Cumming School of Medicine explained. “This will potentially allow us to identify cases before they’re clinically evident.

In later phases of the project, officials say AHS will advise the group of communities of concern so that wastewater testing can be deployed in those areas.

COVID-19 vaccine may not work in older people, experts sayA vaccine against COVID-19 may not be as effective in older people who are most at risk of suffering complications and dying from the disease, according to U.K. researchers. However, some experts say immunizing those around the elderly may help protect them. 🤷🏻‍♂️ Doubt the brain dead liberals out there would care, they seem to be happy killing off anyone who doesn’t support their thin skinned easily offended nonsense. And old people seem to have morals and values, something the morally dead left doesn’t have it seems! But that's who is most affected and what is this vaccine really for?

With more young people testing positive, what's behind Florida's COVID-19 surge?As Florida emerges from its coronavirus shutdown, the state is experiencing a surge of COVID-19 cases, with younger Floridians accounting for a significant number of positive tests. Globalist agenda and Fake News. It's a fear based tactic meant to keep control and make people submissive. Three weeks ago your narrative and info was different. It was to allow riots.
