Most clinical surveillance of arbovirus outbreaks underestimates the true prevalence as a large proportion of cases exhibit no or only mild clinical symptoms (i.e., are subclinical). Reports of urinary shedding of several arboviruses such as Dengue (DENV), yellow fever (YFV), and Zika (ZIKV) viruses suggest the possibility of utilizing wastewater surveillance to assess the prevalence of arboviral outbreaks. To determine the feasibility of wastewater surveillance, we investigated the decay of representative arboviruses (including DENV-2, DENV-3, YFV, and ZIKV) along with murine hepatitis virus (MHV) as a surrogate for human coronavirus within a wastewater matrix at 6, 25, or 37 °C using RT-qPCR. DENV-2, DENV-3, YFV, ZIKV, and MHV experienced a one log10reduction within 3.95-6.21 days at 25 °C and within 2.60-5.12 days at 37 °C, while incubation at 6 °C did not indicate substantial decay within 21 days. Our work suggests that these arboviruses or their RNA could persist sufficiently in wastewater over a range of temperatures, supporting the potential for wastewater-based surveillance of arboviral outbreaks.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/159842||ISSN:||2328-8930||DOI:||10.1021/acs.estlett.1c00517||Schools:||School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering
