    Highlights
    •The first study that reports the detection of SARS-CoV-2 in wastewater in Germany using RT-qPCR.
    •The presence of SARS-CoV-2 was confirmed by sequencing, but also the risk of false-positive results has been elucidated.
    •In raw wastewater, 3.0 to 20 gene equivalents/mL was found in raw wastewater.
    •The replication potential tests were negative for wastewater samples.
    •Sanger sequencing was required to differentiate the genetic pattern clearly.
