COVID-19: Day 3 Bottled Water

Along with toilet paper, bottled water is the panic buyers most irrational purchase. Social media is full of images of empty shelves. But why? COVID-19 is not cholera. It’s not spread by our water supply nor does it live in our reservoirs and pipes. And unless you live in Flint Michigan, your tap water is perfectly safe to drink (or at least as safe as it was before COVID-19).

I can understand the run on alcohol hand sanitizer. But why are people obsessed with TP and bottled water? My best guess is that they’re mis-remembering how to prepare for a hurricane or other natural disaster. Whatever the reason, I created this short video to inform and entertain.
