Not funny but interesting story/development.
Several colleges are trying to thwart COVID outbreaks by regularly testing sewage from the dorms. Among the asymptomatic, an early stage of a coronavirus infection can be detected in feces.
The University of North Carolina at Charlotte and Rochester Institute of Technology in New York test wastewater. The early-warning system works because of the distinct dorm population can be individually tested.
The University of Arizona President Robert Robbins (quote) “We found cases that no one would have known about. Now we’re contact tracing to find how many other students may be positive and asymptomatic.”

Is this going to be the new way we determine who has the ‘Rona? Time will tell.
