Does COVID 19 can be transferred via water/wastewater?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) stated that the COVID-19 virus was not observed in drinking water because COVID-19 is "not robust," less environmentally stable, and is more sensitive to oxidants, such as chlorine.

On wastewater treatment, WHO noted that "is no evidence to date that the COVID-19 virus has been transmitted via sewerage systems with or without wastewater treatment".
