Coronavirus: The South African village preparing for Covid-19

The South Africa government is urging people to wash their hands frequently and to practise good personal hygiene to keep Covid-19 at bay, but this is a tall order for thousands of people in rural areas of the KwaZulu-Natal province where water is scarce.

The lack of taps and clean running water has forced people to share dirty streams with animals.

Coronavirus – and the heightened demand for water that it’s brought – has made matters worse.
