5. What are businesses going to do that rely on water e.g. all the restaurants etc.? If they are forced to close the economic impacts will be enormous.

Smith: Strategic commercial areas, high-density areas with significant risk of increased burden of disease, such as informal settlements, and critical services, such as hospitals, old age homes, prisons, hospitals, fire stations, police stations, clinics, children homes, where possible, will continue to receive drinking water through normal channels. Significant monitoring and enforcement will be put in place to ensure that water usage at these points is significantly reduced.
Can't we just let a lot of them die of thirst? :twisted:
