Deepverge PLC (DVRG.L) Comment on detection of COVID-19 in UK Sewage

DeepVerge notes press commentary today that wastewater treatment sites in England, Wales and Scotland will start testing more sewage for coronavirus, with the aim of creating an early warning system to detect local outbreaks before they spread.

DeepVerge has been working with multiple universities and wastewater utilities since June this year on COVID-19 related projects. The Company is involved in many projects in the U.K., Ireland, Italy, Michigan, US, Shanghai, China and Japan.

Currently, in its Labskin laboratories in York, the Company is retrofitting Microtox equipment, from Modern Water plc (a company currently the subject of a recommended offer by DeepVerge) to install these projects.
