Vattnet i bassänger kan inaktivera Covid-19 viruset efter bara 30 sekunder, vid rätt förhållanden. Detta visar en studie vid Imperial Collage i Londn.
Professor Wendy Barclay vid Imperial College i London säger:
“By mixing the virus with swimming pool water that was delivered to us by the Water Babies team, we could show that the virus does not survive in swimming pool water: it was no longer infectious.
“That, coupled with the huge dilution factor of virus that might find its way into a swimming pool from an infected person, suggests the chance of contracting Covid-19 from swimming pool water is negligible.”
