During the COVID-19 pandemic the government is ordering people to stay at home to stop the spread of this disease. Health experts believe that people will be safer from the comfort of their own homes.

While this may be true for stopping the spread of COVID-19, it is not true for other health hazards people can experience in their homes.

In substandard housing many people face health hazards such as:

  • Lead poisoning,
  • Roaches,
  • Faulty wiring,
  • Black mold and;
  • Water leaks

These threats pose serious issues even when people are not in quarantine. So, the impact of these could be even more intense now than they ever were before.
