Amid the rise in Covid-19 cases across the world, Scientists have figured out an important weakness of the virus. Researchers from Russia’s VECTOR State Research Center of Virology and Biotechnology in Novosibirsk, Siberia have figured out that ordinary water can help restrict the growth of the virus

According to LiveMint, The study concludes that in 90 per cent particles of coronavirus die in room temperature water while 99.9 per cent of them are killed in 72 hours Also, scientists claim that boiling water kills the virus immediately and definitively.

Researchers found that although the virus does not multiply in dechlorinated and sea water, it can remain viable for some time and its lifespan depends on the water’s temperature. Chlorinated water is said to be highly effective at killing the virus
