More than half of Africans say their governments are failing them when it comes to one of their top priorities - the provision of clean water and sanitation services, a new Afrobarometer analysis shows. Half of the survey respondents say they went without enough clean water for home use during the previous year - a particular concern considering the importance of proper hygiene for preventing the spread of coronavirus and other infectious diseases.
