全世界的水源,只有0.08%到达水龙头

这个地球的表面大部分都被海洋、河流和湖泊为覆盖,但是究竟有多少是可以最后到达我们的水龙头以供给我们食用?只有0.08%!

88%:在所有因为痢疾而导致的死亡的人数中,有多达88%是因为引用不安全水源、不够适用于卫生的水和不够卫生设施。如果把百分比转换成数目字,那么每年就将近有一百五十到一百九十万五岁以下的孩童死于痢疾,相等于每天有将近4000位儿童丧命!

Of All The Water in the World, Just 0.08% Makes It To Our Faucets

The world is covered in oceans, rivers and lakes, but when we look at how much actually makes it to our faucets, it only amounts to around 0.08%.

88%: Number of deaths from diarrhea are caused from unsafe drinking water, inadequate availability of water for hygiene, and lack of access to sanitation; this translates to more than 1.5 million of the 1.9 million children under five who perish from diarrhea each year. This amounts to 18% of all under-five deaths and means that more than 4,000 children are dying every day as a result of diarrhoeal diseases.
