Timing is EVERYTHING!

The world has drastically changed in a matter of weeks, and this change in tone in such a short period of time, has left many people confused. Healthcare officials across the globe have encouraged people to stay home. Staying at home may sound like an introvert’s dream, but it hasn’t been a smooth transition for the more social among us.

‘CO’ stands for corona, ‘VI’ for virus, and ‘D’ for disease. And '19' stands for 2019, the year it appeared on the scene.

On March 11, the World Health Organization designated “coronavirus disease 2019” [Covid-19] a global pandemic. Now a report, released by the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, suggests that the United States should prepare for another 18 to 24 months of “significant COVID-19 activity”. Equally worrisome, experts have also stressed that “COVID-19 appears to spread more easily than flu”.

But one important fact to note however, is that hand washing with soap and water is still the best way to prevent transmission of the virus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

This novel coronavirus is thought to transmit primarily through direct contact with respiratory droplets of an infected person [generated through coughing and sneezing], making person-to-person transmission most common. The COVID-19 virus may survive on surfaces for several hours, but simple disinfectants can kill it, so cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces is crucial.

Observing these guidelines can significantly reduce the spread of the virus.

Feeling quarantined at home? Navigating something like Covid-19 can cause stress and anxiety among even the most level-headed people.

Limiting interactions between one another gives the virus fewer chances to change hands.

As the coronavirus outbreak spreads in the U.S., people are staying at home as much as possible in hopes of reducing exposures and preventing respiratory illnesses. Some are avoiding even the essential errands like periodic trips to the grocery store, especially if the needed products are really tough to find and not readily in supply. It's simply not worth making a trip to be disappointed.

Shelves, usually filled with paper products, remain empty. Shortage has multiple causes, including disrupted global supply chains, and the very basic fact that shoppers have hit the stores en masse, leading to the widespread product scarcity. The reality is that stuff is flying off the shelf in an extremely efficient, tightly controlled supply chain. Hoarding is a major reason toilet paper is scarce.

Some items are clearly a “must have”, but there is no need to stockpile.

Since hand washing, for at least 20 seconds, is such an important line of defense, it’s worth making certain that one has an adequate supply of soap. Cleaning products are necessary as the coronavirus is effectively destroyed by almost any disinfectant household cleaner. Plenty of paper goods are required like paper towels, tissues, sanitation wipes, and toilet paper, as well as extra garbage bags in which to safely toss contaminated tissues and paper towels.

Fact, there are shortages of all sorts of odds and ends, and grocery stores are already struggling to keep up with demand. Well, the supply problem is solved right here in 19007!
