Report on transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in beaches and swimming pools
7 May 2020
Researchers from Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) have written a report that compiles the current state of knowledge about the transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes the Covid-19 disease, in spaces for bathing and other aquatic activities. From the possible routes of infection this report addresses (swimming pools, beaches, rivers, etc.), the main route of transmission of SARS-CoV-2 is through respiratory secretions that are generated by coughing, sneezing and person-to-person contact.
