Essential Items You Need To Survive A Pandemic

The spread of the new strain of coronavirus has caught the world by surprise. From its first emergence in Wuhan, China in December 2019, it quickly spread all over the world, which has infected millions of people. The sad part is, a lot of them have died. Up to this day, no cure has been established yet. As to when and how, nobody really knows at this point…..

This is an example of a pandemic. In a nutshell, a pandemic can be defined as an epidemic occurring worldwide affecting a large number of people. We never know what will come tomorrow. The only thing that we can do is to be prepared even in our own simple ways.

Here are essential items you need to survive a pandemic:

Face Masks

Be it flu or any other type of sickness, face masks can provide protection. It helps you avoid getting in contact with the respiratory secretions of infected individuals, especially when they sneeze or cough. Sick people need to wear face masks as well so they won’t be able to spread the infection. Although a face mask does not really provide full-proof protection, it can still serve as a barrier.

Gloves

Bacteria or viruses can’t be seen by the naked eye. So to add another layer of protection, wearing disposable gloves would always be a good idea. With these pieces of protective equipment, you can avoid getting in contact with contaminated surfaces, especially when you go outdoors or in crowded places. Be sure, though, that you use your gloves properly to ensure that they are serving their real purpose.
