  • The coronavirus may have spread through bathroom drains in a high-rise building in Guangzhou, China, a new study found.
  • Researchers have detected the virus in human feces before.
  • Now scientists think virus-laden feces particles could travel upward through an apartment building’s plumbing after a person flushes a toilet.
  • But only certain conditions make this scenario possible, like poor ventilation.

In February, three families in a high-rise building in Guangzhou, China, tested positive for the coronavirus. They didn’t know each other, didn’t live on the same floor, and hadn’t come into contact.
