台北市長柯文哲於21日台北市防疫因應記者會中指出,在台北市的汙水下水道,檢測36次中有3次找到COVID-19病毒RNA,代表病毒仍會在糞便中存活。柯文哲也提醒,上廁所沖水時病毒可能會隨著看不見的氣溶膠顆粒汙染空間,因此沖水時應將馬桶蓋蓋上,才能避免汙染環境。

至於許多公廁採用蹲式馬桶,沖水時無法蓋上,柯文哲則建議上廁所一定要全程戴好口罩,並且如廁後勤洗手。

「下水道驗出新冠肺炎病毒」與「蓋上馬桶蓋再沖水」確實有各自的研究,但兩者之間沒有因果關係。

台灣與國外確實會透過污水監測,作為 COVID-19 是否在該社區盛行的指標之一,也可以幫助公共衛生相關的決策。

另外,也確實有研究指出,沖馬桶不蓋馬桶蓋確實會產生懸浮在空中的氣溶膠,上頭可能會帶有病原體;蓋上馬桶蓋之後,氣溶膠會稍微較少,但還是會由馬桶蓋與馬桶之間的縫隙中滲出。因此,研究者提出的解方是,應改善公共廁所的通風,避免氣溶膠累積。
