Night doc, does the covid virus survive in water? If we swim and by chance there are sufferers who swim also can be infected? Thank you.

1 Answer:

Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Corona virus infection is a global concern because of its ability to spread quickly and its complications that can lead to death. So indeed we should know how to transmit it in order to stop the rate of infection.


Corona virus can survive in the air for 180 minutes, and most often transmitted through touch. If our hands touch an object contaminated with the corona virus, whatever it is, then we touch our mouth, nose or eyes, then we can be infected with the virus. This virus can also be contagious if we are near people who are sneezing or coughing.


Regarding your question, the corona virus cannot survive in water, especially water in swimming pools. Because, there is already a chlorine content in swimming pools whose main purpose is as a disinfectant or germ killer.


However, if you swim in a public swimming pool, it does not mean you are protected from corona virus infection. Say you did not get it while you were swimming, but when you hold the door handle, receive change, receive a ticket, buy a meal, turn the handle on the shower, or have other swimmers infected with corona and sneeze near you, you can still get it. Basically, every time we leave the house, we are exposing ourselves to the possibility of being infected with corona.


That is why, all possibilities of exposure to the virus are simplified by the suggestion to stay at home as long as possible. But if you do have to go out, make sure you regularly wash your hands, keep a distance of at least 1 meter from other people, and do not come out except for important matters. So, hopefully answering your question.
