Fighting the Virus – Order Online

If you haven’t already read my last post “Traveling Today, Fighting the Virus”, you might want to read it. In the post there are some suggestions on how to handle traveling today with the outbreak of COVID19, or the corona virus, which includes some interesting travel finds to help prevent the spread of the virus.

Since that post, COVID19 has made it’s way to the United States and there are shortages of hand sanitizer, face masks and disinfectant wipes on top of other essential household supplies such as toilet tissue.

So, the purpose of this post is to help everyone stay calm and collected. Just because your local stores may have shortages of necessary items required to give peace of mind to everyone out there, it does not mean that there aren’t other alternatives. Here is one way…” Fighting the Virus – Order Online”.

Popular Items

FIght the Virus

HAND SANITIZERS: Although washing your hands properly with soap and water is one of the most effective ways to spread the virus, hand sanitizers can be used if there is no access to soap and water. According to prevention.com, hand sanitizers must be used properly as well. This means covering your hands in hand sanitizer and rubbing them until completely dry which usually takes about 20 seconds. Also, hand sanitizers which consist of 60% or more alcohol are the most effective.

FACE MASKS: To wear or not to wear face masks? That is the question. My answer: do what makes you happy. So, if you feel protected with face masks, then you’re going to do it. According to prevention.com, “The CDC doesn’t currently recommend that the general public wear face masks to prevent viral infections. However, the organization says that people who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 (or are being evaluated for infection) should wear a mask when they’re in the same room as other people.”

DISINFECTING WIPES: Medical grade disinfecting wipes such as SONO can also help prevent the spread of the virus. However, all brands of disinfecting wipes such as Clorox and Lysol must be used properly as well. According to sonowipes.com using disinfecting wipes properly include:

  • Wipe the surface until it is visibly wet with the wipe solution.
  • Maintain a wet surface for at least 10 minutes, using multiple wipes if needed.
  • Allow to air dry.

RUBBING ALCOHOL Another prevention tool is to rub things clean with rubbing alcohol or use alcohol wipes like the ones you find in first aid kits.

Other Items

There are other items that you can keep in your home to help keep you healthy.

ECHINACEA: According to healthline.com, “Echinacea is a group of flowering plants used as a popular herbal remedy. They’re linked to many health benefits, such as reduced inflammation, improved immunity and lower blood sugar levels.” I, personally, have tried echinacea and I found that it works well for me. According to webmd.com, “Echinacea is widely used to fight infections, especially the common cold, and the flu. Some people take echinacea at the first sign of a cold, hoping they will be able to keep the cold from developing. Other people take echinacea after cold of flu-like symptoms have started, hoping they can make symptoms less severe or resolve quicker.”

AIRBORNE: Airborne is a dietary supplement that helps improves the immune function and helps with the prevention of the common cold. I have used Airborne prior to traveling to prevent acquiring sicknesses from being around so many people in airports and on the airplane.

EMERGEN-C: According to healthline.com, “Emergen-C is a nutritional supplement that contains vitamin C and other nutrients designed to boost your immune system and increase energy. Emergen-C is a powdered drink mix that contains vitamin C, several B vitamins and other nutrients to support energy levels and immune function.” I have also tried Emergen-C whenever I feel a cold or flu coming.

Traveling or Not

Whether traveling or not, we are all feeling the effects of COVID19. As citizens of the world, we must all stay cool and collected in these uneasy times. We must do whatever we can on our part to help prevent the spread of COVID19 and other viruses.

  • Wash your hands properly.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • For the time being, wear masks if you are sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough and sneeze and dispose of all used tissues right away.
  • Refrain from touching your face.
  • Keep clear, as much as you can, from being around crowds and especially from people who are sick.

It also helps to stay positive and to keep stress free. A little prayer or meditation and faith will go a long way, too.

I know it can all sound repetitious and agonizing by now, but it is urgent that we all do what is necessary to keep the virus from spreading. Necessities for doing so might be scarce right now but we must utilize all that we can and that includes Fighting the Virus – Order Online.

  4. While there’s still no known treatment for COVID-19, It’s always safe to proactively use everything necessary and buy these through online marketplaces,  just to prevent this deadly widespreading disease that has already been pandemic! Combining all what you’ve mentioned (such as face mask, hand sanitizer, alcohol, etc.) with Vitamin C or Vitamin D in my opinion is the most strongest defense we could ever make as both vitamins are key factors in strengthening our immune system that protects us from flu, cough, fever and many other viruses!

    Thanks for sharing this article and for the reminders!

  7. This is a really useful and timely post. Thank you for sharing this helpful information on how to avoid the rather unpleasant Covid – 19 virus. I hope this is seen by a lot of people and they place their orders on line rather than risk meeting it in a Pharmacy. Keep safe!

  8. Thank you for sharing this us. I am based in South Africa and we have just had our 7th case of the Corna Virus. It’s important that we also share this with our children and make sure that they implement good hygiene too.

  9. Thanks Geri! Before I started to self-isolate I was in the pharmacy looking for a product to help boost my immune system, just in case I ever got the virus. But I was too nervous with all the people around so I left and started looking for some online. I think I’ll try the AIRBORNE. Do you know where I can order it for at a good price? Thanks!

    1. At this point in time, I would order online. My first thought is to check on Amazon. Please click “Airborne” on my post and it should bring you directly to Amazon.
