Key questions and future perspectives beyond COVID-19

A key question from Researchers was “how do we build a dashboard which is more responsive to the situation as it changes?” Machine-learning aspects would be useful. The following Chapter about Potential and prospects of a future dashboard  discusses the potential and future prospects of the dashboard in terms of digital tooling and the further possibilities.

By 2022 the need for a COVID-19 dashboard, within the two focus countries, was on the decline. The ambition is to continue to look at the broader picture of (waste)water surveillance. This was also reiterated by the Dutch stakeholders who stated that “things are going well in the Netherlands” and that looking abroad to offer assistance would be their future focus. Assisting with COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2 (or other) monitoring and tracking abroad would be useful to understand the movement of the virus.
