( — May 20, 2020) — The COVID 19 or Coronavirus has taken the world by storm, with thousands of deaths until May 2020; it feels like that it has come to stay. It has become essential to ensure that we stay safe, take preventative measures, and reduce meeting people or going out. Many people seem to be back in life, but it’s not the case.

Apart from staying away from people, you must take special care of your hygiene, environment and the people around you. Washing your hands multiple times a day has become essential.

Since the Coronavirus spreads so fast, sanitation is important. Read below to find how the use of water in times of the Coronavirus has changed:

Washing Hands

All institutions working day and night, tirelessly suggest that everyone should wash their hands after every 20 minutes and after coming home. Washing hands is one of the ways you can prevent Coronavirus. You must wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap to ensure that you are not the next corona victim.


People have become more aware of the risks of not having a proper sanitation system. The use of water has significantly increased as everyone around the world ensures that they keep good sanitation by washing clothes, cleaning the floor, and washing everything every now. Many people around the world did not use water in the washroom; however, they now have switched from tissue paper to water. Many have also installed water pumps like to have the appropriate water pressure.

Drink Water

While some might say that is a myth, many people also believe that water will be their savior from many such diseases. They believe that water can help increase their immunity to such diseases and not affect them in any manner. Similarly, some also believe that drinking water will not let the virus attach them. However, there is nothing as such proven by science, and only some people have believed it – it doesn’t align with scientific facts.

In this pandemic, we must take extra care of ourselves and the people around us. You can play your role in serving humanity by not touching any person, wearing masks, sanitizing, staying at home, and staying in hygienic conditions. The disease is spreading quickly, and the only way we can stop it is by taking all the preventative measures.
