    Chlorine will kill it 100%. Use 5 tablespoons (1/3 cup) of bleach in one gallon of water or 4 teaspoons of bleach in one quart of water.

    Ordinary chlorinated pool WATER, though, is not the same.

    Full strength, absolutely, along with you and anyone else unfortunate enough to be in improperly ventilated enclosure where storage and safe handling information has been ignored.

    Source(s): Manufacturers suggestions and indications, and 30 years of not dying from my own stupidity when referring to updated MSDS manuals when coworkers on other shifts expired because they neglected to dislodge thier heads from thier sphincter long enough to not mix or improperly store chemicals and follow dilution tables to the number.

    Are you planning on staying in a pool for the next few months?

    Why be stupid?  Seriously, why be stupid?  Who on here knows the answer to that and if it does, why would that have not been made to the public?  Being ignorant and saying ignorant things when you know you don’t know shot, serves no purpose.

    The same is true even when you’re the President.  He knows that he doesn’t know a damn thing about this virus.  Why would people expect for those who do, such as Dr. Fauci, to simply let the lies, misinformation and even harmful information, stand as true and accurate?  No sane person would expect a man trained in science, medicine and issues of health, to let the nonsense of Trump

    stand. That is absolutely ridiculous.  No one should treat him as the “Emperor has no  clothes”.  When he lies, he should be called out.  End of story.

    No, because coronavirus is not alive. Chlorine could deactivate it, depending on the concentration, but I wouldn't risk it.
