India, particularly during summer months always face acute water shortage. Now with large scale usage of water for the management of Corona Virus, it is likely that the shortage can be more acute, and we may not get enough water for the cleaning. Most parts of India depend entirely on the rains for the supply of water for all purposes. Let us hope that the rains come early this time and save the situation. Let us wish Corona goes away before the rainy season starts.
We, in India, have over 7500 km of coastline and hence plenty of seawater. Desalination is the answer to deal with this situation. Technology is available for the desalination of seawater. Nuclear desalination can be the answer to augment freshwater supply. We must work out the costs.
