A need to fight COVID-19 has led Syracuse University into the sewers to test campus wastewater. The virus can show up in sewage up to 10 days before an infected person begins to show symptoms, so the university is hoping scientists can identify the location of the virus, test students in that dormitory, identify anyone who is infected and isolate them before they spread the virus to others.
