Save Water! Covid-19 Can Lead to Water Crisis

Covid-19 is leading us towards a new crisis. Many global media houses are reporting that Coronavirus can lead to water crisis.

Here’s how:

If your tap is left running during your 20 seconds hand wash, 1.5-2 liters of water will go to waste. So you end up wasting around 15-20 liters of water because of frequent hand washing. Hence, a family of 5 will need 100 liters of water everyday. But washing your hands is very important else the virus cannot be stopped. So, what to do?

If you consider yourself a responsible citizen, turn off the water tap during those 20 seconds. Wash the tap with your soapy hand each time, so that is also getting cleaned and water is not wasted. So for each hand wash the tap will be touched at least 4 times. So the sequence will be:

Open tap – wet your hands – close tap – soap on hands and tap – lather for 20 seconds – open tap – wash hands and tap – close tap.

If you think a single person can bring no change. Convince your family to do this, you will be saving 100 liters of water everyday.

Please follow this and share this message with as many people as possible so we don’t add to another crisis unknowingly while battling this one.

Take Steps to Protect Yourself from COVID-19

(Source: CDC) There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community.
  • Stay home if possible
