COVID-19: Nigerian Households Can't Afford Water For Handwashing


The National Bureau of Statistics said on Tuesday that a large number of Nigerian households surveyed in June said they could not afford to buy sufficient supplies of the water they needed for handwashing. Frequent handwashing with soap is widely advised as a preventive measure against COVID-19. The NBS, in its latest COVID-19 Impact Monitoring report, disclosed the findings of the second round of its Nigeria COVID-19 National Longitudinal Phone survey conducted last month.
