According to Professor Davidovich, the lack of water in Gaza has a significant impact on hygiene and can lead to the spread of diseases. Without water, basic operations such as bathing, hand washing, and using the toilet become impossible, increasing the risk of diseases like intestinal or respiratory infections. Overcrowded conditions in Gaza exacerbate these risks, especially as winter approaches. The Israeli army has instructed soldiers not to use water from Gaza and to receive their own water supply.
Professor Davidovich also highlights the issue of the lack of fuel in Gaza, which results in a shortage of sewage treatment and affects the operation of desalination machines. This leads to the release of hundreds of millions of liters of sewage into the sea, impacting the shores of Israel. Water tests have confirmed the presence of impurities reaching the shores of the country, with the situation worsening due to the collapse of the sewage system in Gaza and the current rainy season.
The professor emphasizes that vaccinations are crucial for preventing outbreaks of diseases like polio or measles that have regional and international significance. He urges international aid organizations to take responsibility for helping Gaza overcome its challenges.
