Review of the Fate of Enteroviruses and Indicator Organisms in the Environment
The study reviewed methods for evaluating decay rates (T90s) for enteroviruses and the faecal indicator organisms and developed an experimental design to quantify T90s in the marine and freshwater environment.
Numerous studies have been carried out on decay rates of bacterial indicator organisms, but not on enteroviruses.
A protocol to evaluate inactivation of enteroviruses and indicator organisms under natural conditions has been proposed. Solar simulator experiments would provide validation data under natural sunlight conditions. If successful, an in situ study would be used to validate the in vitro data.
