Vancouver Airport joined Toronto’s Pearson Airport today (Friday), in testing wastewater from arriving aircraft for signs of COVID-19.
The program is aimed at tracking the different variants of the virus that people are bringing into Canada.
The latest sub-variant X-B-B point-one point-five…..has now been found in Canada.
It’s already causing 40 percent of the new infections in the U-S.
In the coming weeks, a parallel program will be launched at Vancouver Airport, to specifically test wastewater in flights from China.
