Strategies to Control the Pandemic
3. TTT Program

II. The Role of Tracking While Waiting for a Cure and a Vaccine

Sentinel Surveillance System

Samples in the population for infection can allow early identification of smaller outbreaks

Adopting electronic standards and reporting via existing automated reporting infrastructures would allow the test results to be reported quickly from healthcare providers, labs, and other testing sources to the health department.

Syndromic Surveillance System

Build on existing syndromic surveillance capabilities to identify spikes and falls in symptoms to allow prompt reporting of outbreaks to initiate immediate testing

Critical for jurisdictions that do not have timely testing of all potential cases

Can help to prioritize where widespread testing capacity is needed and by correlating results can provide information on the impact on the healthcare system

Wastewater Surveillance

Recently, the virus has been found in untreated wastewater

While data are limited, there is no information to date that anyone has become sick with COVID-19 because of exposure to wastewater

Stanford, team will begin analyzing stored frozen samples for traces of genetic material from SARS-CoV-2.
