Abstract

The impact of water sources on humans has many facets. Our daily consumption is only a small part of the water that is used to irrigate plants, raise fish and fowl, and so on. The environment we live in and the survival of the organisms around us all depend on the safety of the water source. Water sources need to adhere to strict standards for pathogens, oxygen, salt, heat, heavy metals, and more. Otherwise, unclean water sources can cause disease and even be fatal. Since covid-19 broke out in 2019, it has had many impacts on people's lives, and it is no different for water treatment. The original treatment of water sources needs to be protected and improved to ensure the safety of the water. This article will analyze and list the original water treatment process, the impact of covid-19, and some of the current solutions.
