Saskatoon COVID-19 levels see increase in latest wastewater study – CBC

Researchers say results show 6th wave has not passed its peak

May 09, 2022

Researchers at the University of Saskatchewan say COVID-19 levels in Saskatoon have increased again, signalling that the sixth wave is not over yet.

On Monday, head researcher and toxicologist John Giesy released this week’s COVID numbers, showing a 44 per cent increase from the previous week.

“[This confirms] that the viral load is large in Saskatoon, with the second greatest amount ever observed and approximately the same amount as it was a month before,” wrote Giesy.

“Thus, it is too early to declare the 6th wave has passed its peak.”

Every week, researchers take studies from wastewater systems in they city to determine whether COVID-19 infections are increasing or decreasing in the community.

The latest numbers from Saskatoon come after two weeks of declining COVID-19 viral load.
