Tap water is still safe!
The coronavirus immediately loses its infectious effect as a result of the chlorine used to disinfect drinking water. Chlorine also kills the virus. As a result, the consumption of clean, treated drinking water is safe, the virus is unable to enter the supply system and cannot survive in the drinking water.
The water provided by Budapest Waterworks passes through a fully closed, automated drinking water supply system from the water supply well to the taps. While passing through the system the water makes no contact with humans or animals. When someone opens the tap, they are the first to contact the water. Accordingly, it excludes the possibility that the virus which is essentially transmitted by respiratory droplets reaches users through drinking water. It also excludes the possibility that the carrier gets into the water supply through human excrement, as the drinking water makes no contact with contaminated water.
