...Biobot has developed a process to identify, replicate, and measure the
concentration of the viral RNA (ribonucleic acid) within a given wastewater
sample. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Biobot has analyzed COVID-19
prevalence in roughly 400 cities across America.

Throughout May, Moscow provided weekly test samples, with the first three
tests resulting in no detectable COVID-19. Then on June 16, the City
received the results for the fourth test on May 27. This sample reportedly
showed a concentration which Biobot used to estimate 190 cases of COVID-19
in the community. Following this, the City then ordered another test kit to
verify the May 27 results, and notified the Public Health of the outcome of
the test. The follow-up verification tests were completed on July 1.

On July 9, the City received the results for the follow-up sample collected
on July 1. This sample showed a marked increase in concentrations, which
Biobot used to estimate 1,400 cases in the community...
