Queensland wastewater surveillance for SARS-CoV-2 in 2020

Data usability rating :
Contains open format machine-readable open data.

This dataset contains the results of all wastewater sample analyses for the period July 2020 – Dec 2020. During this period, the publication of results was linked to targeted public health messaging and not all results were publicised.

Some samples were reanalysed as part of CSIRO’s ongoing method development, and are indicated as such. In a relatively small number of instances, samples returned a ‘non-detect’ initially but returned a ‘detect’ result upon reanalysis with a modified analytical method. The dataset shows the final results for all samples that were reanalysed.
