Abstract: This literature review analytically discovers how the complex dynamic between Water and the extraordinary challenges caused by the COVID-19 epidemic is associated the critical synthesis and Evaluation of the selected papers reveals a diverse set of techniques and results, contributing to the research knowledge of the complex interplay between the pandemic and water parameters. Ranging from different studies on the topic, the review comes up with a critical analysis of 15 water demand articles that deal in varied areas, covering water resilience in the United Kingdom and Ireland, water resource disruptions in India, and so on. What is more is that the analysis of varying results and methods leads to the highlight of common patterns and differences, which lays out the general direction of research on such a significant subject. By looking for common issues in different editions, the subject matter of the uncertainty involved becomes precise and complicated. The results highlight that the pandemic has affected multiple facets of Water globally. Each study offers a distinct perspective, from modeling in Saudi Arabia to researching water quality in Hawai’i during lockdowns. While “Water Sector Resilience in the United Kingdom and Ireland: The COVID-19 Challenge” focuses on adaptation strategies, “Changes in Water Use and wastewater generation influenced by the COVID-19 pandemic: A Case Study of China” looks at Regional Variations. The concluding section describes outcomes and suggestions for the broader perception of water associations with the pandemic.
