Since February 2020, the Coronavirus pandemic has severely limited the life of the entire world and the collaboration between people and countries.

The ENI CBC Med Managing Authority has encouraged funded projects to develop solutions and share experiences that can mitigate the consequences of the pandemic. 

In the month of June, experts from ENAS - Ente Acque della Sardegna (Sardinian Water Board), Palestinian Wastewater Engineers Group (Lead partner), Aqaba Water Company and Ira Médenine, set up a working group to assess the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had in some Mediterranean countries in the first six months of 2020.

The working group activities are reflected in a document entitled "Basic hygiene practices for workers". The document was created with the intent of taking stock of the state of the pandemic and disseminating basic knowledge about the virus among workers in the water sector.
