Keywords:Corona, Drinking Water

The solidarity and morale with which the world is fighting the Corona epidemic encourages citizens as a society to reimburse various basic needs. Today, the developing countries are fast moving towards reimbursement of the basic needs of its citizens (such as food to eat, clothes to wear and house to stay, etc.). On the other hand, the availability of water for drinking and agriculture need to pay attention and launch a comprehensive campaign. Long-term water security and access to clean water are essential for public health. We have to stand as an organized society and fight together to ensure the availability of water by learning from the war of the Corona epidemic. When the world is in the grip of an epidemic, it is difficult to draw attention to the global water crisis, one of the greatest environmental risks to mankind. Nevertheless, the coronavirus threat reminds us how important water is to our lives. This study highlights the strategies learnt from Corona epidemic for management of water resources.
