Can Covid be transmitted in water?
The US Based Centres for Disease Control and Prevention state:
“CDC is not aware of any scientific reports of the virus that causes COVID-19 spreading to people through the water in pools”.
“Plus, proper operation of public pools… and disinfection of the water… should inactivate the virus.”
“The virus mainly spreads when respiratory droplets from infected people land in the mouths or noses of others or possibly when inhaled into the lungs by others.”
This has been confirmed in the UK by the industry body the Pool Water Treatment Advisory Group (PWTAG).
