Covid 19 Viability in the Ocean:


So when will the scientists test Covid 19 in sea water to see how long it remains a threat?

Should have happen months ago!

Stay Stoked & Safe!

There has evidently been one study done in Germany that indicates that the COVID-19 virus does not remain viable after passing through the human digestive tract.  This would suggest that at least seawater contaminated by sewage would not serve as a pathway of contagion.  However, this is only one study and it as not undergone peer review.

I doubt it holds up at all in sea water.  Soap and water kill it almost immediately.  Something about the virus having a very weak outer membrane makes it a fairly easy microbe to kill.  Its what it does if it gets inside of you that kills you.
