Doctors Orders: This Is What You Need For Your COVID-19 Emergency Home-Kit..
Are You Prepared?
Time to press pause on your work-at-home, relax-at-home activities for a minute to prepare a COVID-19 emergency kit! You just never know when you or someone in your household might take ill, and it’s always best to be prepared…
Here are the necessities:
» Pulse oximeter
» Face masks/gloves
» Hand sanitizer
» Cough drops
» Paper towels
» Chicken soup
» Avocados, Bananas and Apples
Those, are just a sampling of the staples — some obvious, others not so much — that doctors across the country say we should have on hand to treat a coronavirus patient at home, according to a much-discussed Wall Street Journal rundown in early April.
The first step, of course, is to isolate the patient with their own stash of cleaning supplies.
“At the top of my wish list would be an extra bedroom with an attached bathroom. That’s the ideal scenario,” Columbia University’s David Buchholz told the Journal. “If you have a one-bedroom apartment, the sick person gets the bedroom. That’s key. They can’t leave, and nobody can enter.” If they must leave their room, they should wear a mask, as should anyone entering, he said.
In terms of drugstore needs, over-the-counter cold medicines and a thermometer are necessities. Doctors also recommend a pulse oximeter, which can be bought at pharmacies and other retailers, to monitor heart rate and blood-oxygen levels to make sure the lungs are working correctly.
Honey can soothe a sore throat. As for food and drink, chicken soup is a good choice, as are nutrient-rich foods like avocados, bananas and apples. Throw some Gatorade in there, too, just make sure to cut it with half-water, per doctor’s orders.
With the coronavirus still spreading throughout the United States, it’s no time for complacency, even if there appear to be some positive developments in terms of flattening the curve.
