Sea salt, combined with ultraviolet radiation, destroys the coronavirus infection agent. Thus, it will be possible to open beach season in Ukraine, as 112 Ukraine reported citing Deputy Health Minister Viktor Lyashko.

“This season we will be able to swim. We held particular consultations with Epidemiology and Infectious Diseases Institute of the National Academy of Medical Science and the specialists confirmed that sea salt together with solar UV radiation destroy the infection agent of the coronavirus disease that is why it will be allowed to open the beach season in Ukraine, possibly, as in other world countries,” Lyashko said.

According to him, in freshwater, the infection agent of the coronavirus may survive; however, it is difficult to get infected in the rivers with running water. The infection may take place only with close contact. Thus, the Health Ministry allowed opening river beach season.

As of 9 a.m. May 18, Ukraine reports the overall number of 18,616 cases of infection with Covid-19. 535 people succumbed to the disease. Another 5,276 recovered from coronavirus.
