SARS-CoV-2 qPCR and water chemistry data from wastewater at six sites in England and Wales between March and July 2020, with associated Covid-19 positive test and related-death data collated from other sources

Concentrations of SARS-CoV-2 RNA and physichochemical data on wastewater samples collected from six sites across England and Wales between March and July 2020. Also included are the number of COVID-19 positive tests and COVID-19 related deaths for the same period collated from publicly available records. COVID-19 data relate to the lower tier local authority that the wastewater treatment plant was located within.
