Some Chicagoans May Be Facing Coronavirus Without Water At Home

Dr. Samuel Dorevitch, associate professor of environmental and occupational health sciences, was interviewed by WBEZ (Chicago Public Radio) on the public health challenges from Chicago residents who had their water service cut off before major public action on the COVID-19 outbreak.

Chicago is facing a public health hazard already. But there are individuals who are not able to wash their hands, wash their face, to keep themselves clean and follow CDC recommendations about stopping the chain of coronavirus transmission. That is a public health problem for them, and it’s a problem for everybody else.
