It will reduce the chance of you becoming infected, and as a result it protects others.
What do you reckon about transmission in swimming pools?
They will be awash with droplets. Does chlorine kill the virus? What about people coughing and spluttering around you?
Perhaps I am being a bit thick here.
Unless you are wearing a proper, covid19-ward PPE mask which has a proper filter and fits like an oxygen mask, wearing a mask offers the wearer little protection from infection.
Chlorine kills the virus. You won't catch Covid 19 whilst swimming (the issues concern the changhing rooms etc).
Don't tell Trump!!
WHO have now published their findings on investigations into aerosol transmission of Covid 19 www.who.int
I have it on good authority that if President Trump drinks chlorine, he will not catch or die of Covid 19.
You won't catch it from the water but it could be in the air including the air around a swimming pool. The chlorine is only in the water. If you were swimming in the same pool as someone with the virus you could still catch it via the air.
