Two lakh people are losing their lives every year due to contaminated water, in Delhi the ‘life giver’ is the main reason for the disease.

Pollution levels are increasing rapidly in the country and the world. India is also not untouched by this. At present the country is struggling with the problem of air pollution. But the country has also been struggling with the problem of contaminated water for many years. According to a report by the Composite Water Management Index (CWMI), two lakh people die every year due to inadequate access to safe water in the country. According to the report, about 600 million people may have to face water stress by 2030, which is about 40 percent of the country’s estimated population.

The capital Delhi and NCR areas are greatly affected by the problem of contaminated water. If we look at the condition of Yamuna, the main river passing through Delhi, it is very bad. A major reason for pollution in Delhi NCR is releasing waste into water. Due to which water gets polluted and water borne diseases spread among people. If reports are to be believed, apart from Yamuna river, the condition of other rivers originating from Delhi NCR is also not very good.

These diseases are caused by contaminated water

Many diseases spread due to contaminated water. Which includes diarrhea, cholera, typhoid, malaria etc. Due to these diseases, children, elders and elderly people of all categories suffer from problems like stomach ache, diarrhoea, vomiting, headache, fever etc.

Arrangements for filters and chlorination have been made to remove contaminants from water. Apart from this, many efforts are also being made to spread awareness about contaminated water. However, even after all this work, there is a need to bring further improvements in this area. So that the number of deaths due to contaminated water decreases.
