The new coronavirus really seems to be everywhere. In September, researchers at the University of Minnesota School of Medicine in Duluth first found “traces of the new coronavirus” in beach samples,media reported. The researchers collected water samples from eight different beaches in Duluth, Minnesota, in July, and traces of the SARS-CoV-2 new coronavirus were detected from water samples from Brighton Beach, 42nd Avenue East Beach, Franklin Park Beach, and Liv Erickson Park Beach.
However, the new coronavirus content in these water samples is very low, equivalent to only one in 10,000 detected levels in wastewater.
It is not clear the exact source of the new coronavirus in the sea, and some analysts believe it may have been transmitted by swimmers.
It should be emphasized, however, that there is no evidence that the new coronavirus is transmitted through water.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has previously said there is no evidence that the new coronavirus can be transmitted from water to humans.
