Plans are in the works to check Canadian sewage for traces of monkeypox and polio: Tam:

The head of public health in Canada says that there are plans to test and measure new health threats like monkeypox and polio by going through Canadian sewage.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, finding the virus in wastewater became a key way to track its spread.

Dr. Theresa Tam says that experts at the National Microbiology Lab have now found a promising way to find monkeypox in wastewater.

They will look for it using the infrastructure that was built during the pandemic.

It is not yet clear how this monitoring fits into the Public Health Agency of Canada's efforts to keep an eye on monkeypox.

After US health officials said they found the polio virus in New York City's wastewater, the Public Health Agency of Canada also plans to start testing for polio as soon as possible.

But Tam says that detecting waste isn't perfect yet, but there are a lot of new ideas out there right now,

and Canada's public health agency is looking for the best way to help standardise the process. With reports from the Associated Press

Dr. Theresa Tam, who is in charge of public health in Canada, explained on Friday why the country hasn't declared monkeypox an emergency like the U.S. has.

She said the country already had ways to deal with the outbreak.

She said that getting access to authorities and money is different in Canada than it is in the U.S.

and that provinces can declare crises or emergencies on their own.
