Virus presence in wastewater stable, says public health institute

Concentrations of coronavirus in Hungary's wastewater systems appear to be stable, said on Tuesday, citing data from the National Public Health Institute.

The average concentration of the novel coronavirus detected in wastewater samples on the first week of 2021 showed a stagnant or slightly declining trend, the website said.

The tests showed that the presence of the virus in the sewage systems of Debrecen, Kaposvar, Salgotarjan and five cities and towns near Budapest appears to be declining but remains above average in Szekszard and Szolnok, it added.

The website emphasised the importance of continuing to observe the official coronavirus guidelines in the interest of maintaining the positive trends.
