Corona virus infection has created a ruckus around the world. Every day some new information is being received regarding the corona virus. According to the new information, till now the corona virus was found alive in the sewage line in many cities of the country, but this is the first time that now the corona virus has been detected in natural water sources as well. Corona virus has been found in Sabarmati river in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. Sabarmati water samples were taken, in which corona infection has been found in all. This river originates in the middle of Ahmedabad in the state. This is the first case of getting corona infection in any river of the country.
Apart from Sabarmati, corona infection has also been found in samples taken from Kankaria, Chandola lake, other water sources of Ahmedabad. It is also being said that researchers have also found a sample infected from Bharu river flowing in Guwahati, Assam.
Scientists are also surprised by the confirmation of corona in all samples of Sabarmati river. In fact, eight institutions of the country, including IIT Gandhi Nagar, have done research regarding corona infection in the water of rivers. Manish Kumar of the Department of Earth Sciences of the Indian Institute of Technology in the capital Gandhinagar has informed that till now only the survival of the corona was confirmed in the sewage line, but now the virus has also been detected in the river.
Manish Kumar has told that 694 samples were taken from Sabarmati river, 549 from Kankaria pond and 402 from Chandola pond. After getting the virus, researchers believe that all the natural water sources of the country should be investigated, because many serious mutations of the virus have been seen in the second wave.
