A chapter in Economic Recovery After COVID-19, 2021, pp 271-298 from Springer

Abstract: Abstract The global problem of mankind, for more than a year, is the epidemic of coronavirus, which forces the authorities to take unprecedented measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 virus. During this period, all sectors of the economy are affected, more or less. In this paper, we aim to analyse the water distribution, sanitation, waste management, decontamination activities before the pandemic (2008?2018), but especially during the pandemic, in order to develop economic and social measures. In order to achieve the objectives, the results of the questionnaire launched online, between May and June 2020, will be analysed. The elaboration of the set of measures for this economic sector will be carried out taking into account the extraordinarily abrupt dynamics from day to day of the data on the spread of infections, doubled by the actions of the authorities for isolating the population at home and implicitly the severe restriction of economic activities, which makes the set of measures proposed at the end of this paper to give resilience to this economic sector.
