COVID ON TAP: Coronavirus ‘Could Infect British WATER SUPPLY’ Says No10

CLARIFICATION: Coronavirus ‘Could Infect British WATER SUPPLY’ Says No10

Politicalite would like to clarify that tap water remains perfectly safe. The Prime Minister was describing a hypothetical scenario about what would be done if it was detected. 


BORIS Johnson has stated that measures are being put into place to detect any potential water supply that could be infected by the Coronavirus. 

During a speech in the House of Commons today, the Prime Minister said that local ‘flare-ups’ would be detected and treated, before adding: ‘for instance, if the Covid is detected in the water supply of a certain town, steps can be taken”.

Many seem to have overlooked this snippet, yet some took to Twitter to vent their shock and confusion.

The virus that causes COVID-19 has so far not been detected in drinking water, with conventional water treatment methods that use filtration and disinfection, such as those in most municipal drinking water systems, believed to remove or inactivate the virus.

COVID-19 HAS however been found in untreated wastewater.

Researchers do not know at this point in time whether the virus can cause disease if a person is exposed to untreated wastewater or sewerage systems, however the risk of transmission of the virus through properly designed and maintained sewerage systems is thought to be low.
