How’s the Coronavirus Transmitted?

The extremely contagious coronavirus has an incubation span of 2 weeks, enabling it to be easily spread, which results in mild to serious respiratory sickness with difficulty breathing, cough, and fever. 

To this date, there isn’t any indication that the coronavirus spreads through water, yet mostly through surface and air contact. Due to animals playing a part in the spread of Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) coronaviruses, WHO (World Health Organization) is closely monitoring to check if animals play a part in the transmission of the virus, too.

Some Viruses Get Spread by Water

Some viruses, like Typhoid, hepatitis E, hepatitis A, SARs, conjunctivitis, gastroenteritis, hepatitis, and meningitis may spread through water. 

Waterborne bacteria and viruses cause millions of individuals to become impacted with diseases every year, just because they drank contaminated water. 

The World Health Organization considers viral pathogens transmitted by water to be a substantial health concern.

Many people today are looking for methods of ensuring that their drinking water is secure from water-borne bacteria and viruses. Ultraviolet disinfection is a fairly inexpensive method of ensuring that water at all faucets in the home is virus free.

Ways to Remove Viruses from Water

An ultraviolet water disinfection system may destroy 99.99 percent of dangerous microorganisms to ensure all of the water in a house is free of bacteria and viruses 24/7.

The CDC website reports: ‘UV Light may be utilized as a pathogen reduction technique against some microorganisms. This technology needs efficient prefiltering because of its dependence on low water turbidity, the proper power generation, and the right contact times to accomplish maximum pathogen reduction. Manufacturer’s directions should be followed.’

Another way to prevent the spread of viruses is by installing a reverse osmosis drinking water system.
