This journal article advances SDG 6 by reflecting on the challenges and prospects for water quality in the face of the pandemic caused by the new SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus (COVID-19).
This journal article advances SDG 3 and 6 by discussing the reported number of cases of Acanthamoeba amebic keratitis (AK) which are increasing. Molecular diagnosis has become the first choice of ophthalmologists for identifying and confirming this clinically problematic diagnosis.

This journal article addresses SDG 6 by explaining the ubiquitous presence of microplastics (μPs) and how this has emerged as a significant marine problem. To comprehend fully the potential impacts and ecological harm caused by μPs it is vital that there is an understanding of their potential sources and sinks; the processes affecting their distribution; and their uptake and exchange in ecosystems.
This journal article addresses SDG 3 and 6 by explaining the effectiveness of five-year sanitation strategies in Indonesia. In high-intensity districts, improvements in government systems were observed, and high-intensity districts were more likely to be open defecation free, but sanitation outcomes can be improved when government systems are strengthened.
