Human viruses in water, wastewater and soil. Report of a WHO Scientific Group



Human viruses in water, wastewater and soil. Report of a WHO Scientific Group



World Health Organization Technical Report Series: 5-50



This topic is discussed under the headings: human viruses in polluted water; the minimum infective dose of ingested viruses; limits of epidemiological investigations; sources of infection; virus monitoring; virus removal by treatment processes; and natural recycling and intentional reclamation of water. Viruses appear to be more resistant than bacteria to both environmental factors and treatment processes, and the needs for careful monitoring and water treatment are emphasised.
