This review aims to consolidate available data on COVID-19, a pandemic disease that is threatening the entire world, in order to identify alternative solutions to the pandemic epidemic. The use of safe water is emphasised in the treatment of COVID-19, and the effects of corona virus (if any) on safe water are discussed. Safe water is one of the most important resources for meeting the fundamental hygiene standards that are required to stop the spread of COVID-19. The COVID-19 Pandemic and its consequences were examined in this study. The importance of clean water in reducing COVID-19’s devastating consequences is emphasised. This review’s main methodology was a literature search. According to the findings, severe pandemics such as Bubonic plague and small pox, which killed 200 million and 56 million people respectively, have been documented in the literature. As of April 2, 2020, only 83,600 deaths had been documented worldwide as a result of COVID-19. Natural sources and transmission via bats and/or pangolins are the two main sources of the Pandemic.

To lessen the impact In the event of a pandemic, maintain social distance, avoid shaking or embracing hands, and wash your hands frequently under running water and with hand sanitizer. Although there is no indication that corona viruses are present in surface or groundwater, the virus’s spread is directly linked to water and sanitation. COVID-19 has had a harmful influence on human health as well as the global economy. COVID-19 can be avoided if the world’s population has access to safe drinking water.
