DSD Project Leader/ Sewage Surveillance Mr Eddie PAK Kan-ming was interviewed by RTHK’s live TV programme “Anti Epidemic News Express” on 29 March 2022 to introduce our sewage surveillance work.
Mr PAK introduced in the interview the background of the sewage surveillance programme, the procedures for collecting sewage samples and the criteria for selecting a suitable sewage manhole and setting up a monitoring site. He also mentioned that the viral loads in sewage help the government to carry out a risk assessment to facilitate resources allocation and to determine the subsequent anti-epidemic measures like "Restricted-testing Declaration (RTD)" operation and distribution of "Rapid Antigen Test (RAT)" kits.
