COVID-19 levels in wastewater increase again in two Saskatchewan cities – GLOBAL

May 30, 2022

The latest wastewater samples in Saskatchewan show an increase in the amount of COVID-19 present across multiple areas of the province according to recent research from the University of Saskatchewan (USask).

The cities of Saskatoon and North Battleford both saw an increase in the COVID-19 RNA load in their wastewater. In Saskatoon, the viral RNA load increased by 52.8 per cent, while the North Battleford RNA load increased 37.9 per cent.

While the numbers have increased in both cities for two straight weeks, toxicologist John Giesy, team lead at the USask Global Institute for Water Security which takes the measurements, isn’t overly concerned about the increase in numbers.

“The numbers are still pretty low,” said Giesy. “So in Saskatoon at about 53 per cent (increase),to put that into context, that is the fifth lowest number we’ve had in 20 weeks. So it’s an increase, but when the loads are small, just a few people can cause a big increase.”
