How to Safely Drink Water During the COVID-19

As Human Coronavirus (HCoV) is spreading all over the world at a high pace, we always need to be careful and stay safe. In most cases, we don’t think about the water we drink. We just open the tap, pour the water into a glass, and drink it. According to the WorldCounts, 1,935,985 people died because of drinking dirty water and related diseases in 2020 globally. So, we need to ensure that we are drinking safe water.

Is Tap Water Safe to Drink?

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends people drink water from the tap as usual. According to a recent study on the Survival of Coronaviruses in Water and Wastewater, HCoV can not survive both in tap water (filtered and unfiltered) and wastewater. Coronaviruses die off very rapidly even in the wastewater. But, in most cities and countries, tap water is still declared  not safe by the local authorities.

So, the question arises how we can safely drink water during the Covid-19.

#1: Boiling Your Water

By far, the most common and easiest water purification method is to boil your water before drinking. Boiling water for sufficient time will kill most of the germs, bacterias, and other microbes that can cause illness.

“Boiling is the safest and easiest method to make sure that you drink safe water. Boiling water for 1-3 minutes can kill pathogenic bacteria, viruses, and protozoa. If you are unsure about the water you are drinking, you should boil water with a pan or pot and cool it before drinking” shares Jeffy Anderson, a health care writer at Uni Assignment Help.

You can use any variety of heating techniques to boil your water.
