Since March 16, when Supreme Decree No. 044-2020-PCM – «State of Emergency due to the COVID-19 outbreak» came into force – children, youth, adults, seniors and even our pets, we have been forced to stay at home, the purpose of which is to safeguard your health, that of others (especially the most vulnerable people), thus helping to minimize the spread of the virus. Regardless of whether you like it or NOT, whether or not it is the best measure for the country, the socioeconomic level or the political party to which you belong, the only truth is that EVERYONE must abide by the measure.
The Ministry of Health (MINSA), World Health Organization (WHO) and the media have given some basic recommendations to prevent contagion, the main one being «frequently wash our hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.» ; But perhaps many of us are unaware that there is a significant number of families that do not have direct access to drinking water, and that, probably, the consumption of people who DO have it will increase during the quarantine period, giving way to eventual waste of such a VITAL resource for any human being.
However, it will NEVER be too late to improve or correct bad habits, no matter how small and minute they may seem. Here are some recommendations:
MAYBE these are not the only recommendations that exist, but by following at least ONE of them or the ones you have in mind and making these a routine, we would be collaborating with the care and helping you save money, by reducing the consumption that TODAY they wouldn’t hurt. With this we contribute to avoid the rationing of water to families that need it most. Albert Einstein once commented: “There is a motive force more powerful than steam, electricity and atomic energy: the will; and that’s what we need ”, so #tomateloenserio.
