The new coronavirus COVID-2019 is coming to the Americas. The Disease Centers have warned that the only concern is whether–not if –the new virus will begin to spread. In this way, CDC officials warned Americans we must prepare. How do you do that, though, exactly?

Here are some simple precautions which are fairly easy to implement and can make a major contribution if the coronavirus enters your area.

  • Find out the rules on sick leave and remote jobs.

A pay schedule will, of course, make it easy if workers do not feel well to choose to stay at home. And you should be prepared to allow some or all of your employees to work a while from home. There’s really no reason for not being ready to switch to a remote system during this time of talk and shared documents and visual conferencing, even if everyone wants to be in the office in ordinary times.

  • Stock up your daily drugs and food for two weeks.

Whether the supply chain from China has been interrupted or not, you and your staff should have non-perishable food for at least two weeks and drugs and supplements that you take regularly. In an outbreak, the CDC said that the best defense is “social distancing,” that is to say, to stay home and avoid places where many people, like a grocery store, are present. More than relying on Amazon, Insta cart and other delivery services, it is now a better idea to pack. Many of their drivers could lose during an outbreak.

Make sure you have household cleaners while you are there. Shooting surfaces, particularly when someone has been infected in your household, is a good way to stop a virus spreading.

  • Make sure you store everything you need for influenza.

The new coronavirus is usually mild, the flu counterpart. If these symptoms occur, the health care provider or any other personnel will tell you to stay home, both to prevent you from infecting anyone and to avoid overcrowded hospitals and emergency care facilities from exerting pressure. And plan to get it out by placing it in a stock of tissues, chicken soup, cough drops etc. to get through the flu. You should also purchase faces mask for you to wear in situations when you get sick, to prevent spreading the disease to others elsewhere. (If you have high fever, are dehydrated or difficulty breathing, then do seek medical care, ASAP.) When you care for a sick family person, a face mask can also help you protect yourself, as long as you leave them with you. If you’re safe with your family, experts tell you that it makes no sense to wear a mask, so save it if it’s needed later.

  • Get used to washing hands.

Experts suggest, and this is an excellent idea, that everybody in your home will automatically wash their hands once they walk through the door. By the way, most of us too easily wash our hands. It’s 20 seconds to wash your hands, clean between your fingers and under your fingernails. Twenty seconds are appropriate to sing “Happy Birthday” twice, or to recite a limerick.

  • Make a shot of flu.

Coronavirus vaccine is not yet available and may not exist for a while. Nonetheless, a regular flu shot should still be performed. Each year thousands of people die from flu, though it is not as lethal as the coronavirus. And you might be more vulnerable to worse influenza symptoms with a coronavirus infection.

In addition, hospitals and emergency treatment facilities may flood themselves with patients during a coronaviral outbreak, which may make it difficult for you to receive medical care for the variety of glycosis. It would be better to avoid first.
