Can you drink the tap water in Guinea-Bissau?

What do people in Guinea-Bissau think about the tap water?
You should drink only bottled or purified water. Avoid ‘disinfected’ bags of water sold in the street.
Always take extra precautions, the water may be safe to drink when it leaves the sewage treatment plant but it may pick up pollutants during its way to your tap. We advise that you ask locals or hotel staff about the water quality. Also, note that different cities have different water mineral contents.
