County's testing with BioBot featured in Bloomberg Business
New Castle County has been working with M.I.T. startup BioBot Analytics to test for cases of COVID-19 in wastewater since early April. The testing method - looking for viruses in wastewater to track spread - was used to combat the spread of polio and is now helping inform the County's decisions on how and where we test for the virus and keep the public safe.
