    Great information. Dysentery is the plague of our species on this planet.

    "Worldwide, approximately 140 million people develop dysentery each year, and about 600,000 die. Most of these deaths occur in developing countries among children under age five."

    In a pure survival situation it's understandable that no or limited resources and equipment will be available needed to clean your water.
    Otherwise, what do need? 5 gallon buckets are dirt cheap anywhere. Sand & gravel can be found in your back yard. You can collect charcoal right from your campfire.
    Some amount of work is required to survive, but it's not rocket science, LOL

    You’re quite right about dysentery, my Gt Uncle died of it on the Death Railway in WW2.

    Prayers be with his soul.

    My dad got hepatitis type-A during WWII while serving in France. He said that it was fascinating in how small a mud-hole a man could curl up into when the buzz-bombs' engines shut off overhead.
