The Covid-19 virus continues to be a threat to the public, especially to individuals who have underlying medical condition, such as diabetes and lung disease. They are more at risk of developing more severe symptoms. However, whether you are in a high-risk category or not, it is important to protect yourself at all times.
Eating a nutritious diet, exercising, social distancing and frequent hand washing are some of the things you can do to stay safe. Stay home as much as possible. If you need to buy essentials, shop online. Stock up on everything you need to save on time and money. Shopping can be quite tricky, though. Therefore, to help you not waste your hard-earned money, here are the items that are selling like hotcakes today that you may want to add in your shopping cart.
According to Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, frequent hand washing is one of the best ways to get rid of germs. Not only that, it can help protect you and the people around you from getting sick. So, practice frequent hand washing with hand soap and water, whether you are at home, school, or work.
People from different parts of the world are stockpiling commodities like toilet paper as they fear that it will go out of stock. It can be a problem if you need to stay isolated or quarantined for two weeks. Moreover, it can be used to clean and tidy up, which means it plays an important role in hygiene and sanitation.
Toilet tissue is not the only grocery store item that people are afraid of running out of stock, but paper towel, too. A paper towel is what you can also use to clean and disinfect your home. It is best to buy from a reliable brand as it is thicker and stronger.
Clean your home with a cleaning product that can kill all types of bacteria and germs. Give top priority to high-touch surfaces like counters, doorknobs, handles, keyboards, sinks, and tablets, to name some.
If you do not have access to soap and water, use alcohol, instead. Buy one with 70 to 95% alcohol as they give an extra layer of protection against corona virus. When shopping for alcohol, go for isopropyl as it can enter the cell of the microorganism which makes it a good disinfectant to use daily.
Fever is one of the symptoms of Covid-19 that is why it is important to have a thermometer at home. There are different types of thermometers – digital thermometer, electronic ear thermometer, mercury thermometer, pacifier thermometer, and plastic strip thermometer. The best thermometer to have is the one that can give accurate results every time.
Staying indoors for a long time can negatively impact your mental health. Hence, look for a good activity to do. Level up your cooking skills with a cookbook.
Get a back and neck massager, too. It can help relieve stress in surprising ways.
