Preventable diseases related to water and sanitation are responsible for the deaths of 3.1 million people each year.

Published in Sys-con Media, the infographic is titled World Plumbing Day, to mark the annual event which was established to help the general public have a better understanding of the vital role the plumbing industry plays in the health and safety of modern society. The image reveals that across the world, preventable diseases related to water and sanitation are responsible for the deaths of 3.1 million people each year. This equates to 8,493 people per day and 354 people per hour.
The infographic also demonstrated that contaminated drinking water, unsanitary living conditions and lack of access to indoor plumbing also claimed the lives of more people than any other cause worldwide.
Providing emergency plumbers in Chingford, the team at We Fix Now specialise in providing fast and efficient high quality plumbing in the capital and its surrounding counties. The team found the infographic to be particularly powerful and believe the statistics say a lot about the quality of the plumbing industry in the UK.
“Thanks to advances within the plumbing industry and action taken by the World Plumbing Council and World Health Organisation, this issue is being tackled all the time. Here in the UK it is easy to forget the water quality issues faced by many across the world. Whilst the level of water quality and sanitation is significantly higher here, poor plumbing care can still lead to health issues.”
