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.
