A report from Spain's Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) explains&wheons the chances of infection in some settings.

In the case of swimming pools the risk of contagion is lower&a fact that they are required to use nbsp;chlorine as disinfectant, which causes& <3> <7>AS-CoV-2 coronavirus to die quickly,& <9>alike as with other viruses according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

So&&The risk of becoming infected in a pool is virtually unlikely.&Sin embargo, according to the CSIC sose that  important to stick with the health recommendations,&ya in the pool there is usually a loss of recommended social estrangement measures.

As in the pools,&<2> <5>;the risk of catching the COVID-19 nbsp;in the sea is very limited ya the water contains salt, which deactivate completely to this coronavirus virus;rovirus viruses.

However, on&CSIC, sose that it is important to consider that>examines the possibility of wastewater reaching the sea and these may be contaminated with the virus, have been found restos of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 in stool samples nbsp;of infected patients.

s, lakes or streams

In small water cooings the chances of coronavirus infection are higher, since according to studies the viruses may remain active in natural freshwater environments,&insures the Spanish Council.

The use of disinfectants implemented in order to prevent microbial contamination in this type of place, should sether enough for the inactivation of the virus. As for the aerosols generated by the water present they will have the same disinfection characteristics as the waters of a bath.

In addition to this, in the&<2>>high temperatures, as in the case of saunas and steam baths, which is greater than 60oC, the survival of the virus is expected to be reduced, according to (CSIC).

The chances of contracting COVID-19 by contact with sand are very difficult, because it is a rough surface and in them the virus stays alive for less time.

In addition to the fact that> is in contact with other factors that limit the activity of coronavirus such as ultraviolet rays emitted by the sun and sal of the sea nbsp;if applicable.

s or packs of cardboard

In the case of packages, boxes or other things made of cardboard, these nbsp; have a limited likelihood of contagion nbsp;since according to WHO in this material la COVID-19 survives only for a period of 24 hours.

WHO indicates that&in the case of surfaces such as stainless steel, copper and plastic, the time of infectivity varies:

Sod steel:&<1> <2>consumine/48-72 hoursPlastic: nbsp;48-72 hoursCobre: nbsp&4 hoursWhat is the risk of coronavirus infection through people?

Because&<8> the disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus spreads mainly from person to person through the droplets that come out of the nose or mouth of an infected person when coughing, sneezing or talking, &thury are the algorithms of people, because& <2>a person can get COVID-19 if they inhale the droplets from an infected person by the virus, the organization says.

In fact, it is known that& coronavirus can survive in the air for up to three hours. It is therefore,nbsp;necessary to follow measures of sound distance and confinement to prevent contagion.
