Can drinking tap water give us some protection against coronavirus?

FROM THE CDC (Center for Disease Control):

Q. “Can the virus that causes COVID-19 be spread through drinking water?

A. The COVID-19 virus has not been detected in drinking water. Conventional water treatment methods that use filtration and disinfection, such as those in most municipal drinking water systems, should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.”

  • Disinfection: Disinfection is a physical or chemical process in which pathogenic microorganisms are deactivated or killed. Examples of chemical disinfectants are chlorine, chlorine dioxide, and ozone. Examples of physical disinfectants include ultraviolet light, electronic radiation, and heat.”

FF-C ClipBoard: Evidently the disinfection of our drinking water kills the virus. So we all have disinfected water running through our systems.

They use chlorine. That’s bleach. We’re drinking bleach water?

Maybe I should stop filtering my water. I don’t know. Just a thought. But drinking bleach water doesn’t seem like a very good idea. I wonder if my water filter I use filters out bleach? So much to think about.,causes%20COVID%2D19.
