**GRAPHIC CONTENT WARNING**

About 30 to 40% of residents don’t have running water, which makes following basic CDC guidelines, such as hand-washing, almost impossible.

The Navajo reservation, about the size of West Virginia, has had one of the highest per-capita rates of COVID infection in the U.S. As of July 19, Navajo Nation tallied 8,593 cases and 422 deaths — that's more confirmed cases than 10 states and more deaths than 16. About 30 to 40% of residents in the reservation don’t have running water, which makes following basic CDC guidelines, such as hand-washing, almost impossible. On top of that, there are only 12 healthcare centers and 13 grocery stores for the 173,000 people who live on the reservation.
