The latest UNICEF report on global clean water and sanitation suggests that the impacts of COVID-19 were considerably higher on the urban areas, which don't have access to clean water. That number is as high as 40% of the world population. The report also unveils that more than half of the world's population (4.5 billion) doesn't have access to a safe sanitation system.

Here at home a recent survey conducted by SUEZ – Water Technologies & Solutions found that Americans are increasingly alarmed about water scarcity, period, with 74% of those polled insisting more conserving action needs to be taken, within their communities.
