Patients go to hospital or clinic where they wait for treatment and often need to be admitted. Here lot of patients and other visiting people drink water directly from the water supply system of the hospital or clinic. However, the supply water at hospital or clinic is often not monitored for contamination and people become infected with new diseases by drinking this water.
