A leading Thai expert and doctor has rowed in in Facebook with comments adding fuel to the debate about Covid-19 and swimming.
After regulations at condo swimming pools were eased last week, Dr Thira Woratanarat of Chulalongkorn University’s faculty if medicine said that swimming pools can spread infections associated with bacteria, viruses and protozoa as well as a host of other problems.
The reasons for this, he said, were threefold:
Swimming pools meant that people congregated, users may not be hygienic and above all chlorine was not a cure all.
Swimmers risk getting Hepatitis A, enterovirus, adenovirus and norovirus.
The doctor also revealed that coronavirus is indeed a virus and the public must not be negligent.
