Prevalence of respiratory adenovirus species B and C in sewage sludge

Author affiliations

Abstract

Human adenovirus diversity in sewage sludge was assessed by Ion Torrent sequencing and annotation of partial adenovirus hexon genes. The most abundant species identified were HAdV-C (average 78%) and -B (average 20%), which are associated with respiratory infections. These findings reinforce the necessity to consider aerosol exposure to sewage-derived pathogens.
