This is a serious moment. COVID19 kills and causes dangerous disease worldwide. The speed and scale have surprised many of us and the secondary effects are likely to be significant.
Against this challenge, we can all take steps to improve the results for our loved ones, our neighbors, and ourselves.
We will update this guide to reflect our ongoing coverage, actionable advice and reliable resources to help us all be safe, informed and supported during this difficult time.
Social Distancing and Quarantine
As the early days of this situation develop, the safest thing to do is to minimize your interactions with people outside your home. Limit trips to such for necessities.
If you can work from home, do it. If you can't, take precautions in your interaction with others ̵
If you feel sick, stay home. Try to keep away from others in the living room – use an extra bedroom and bathroom if you can. If someone in your home is ill, the whole family (or other group of cohabitants) should put together a quarantine together for at least 14 days.
It's hard to do, but also try to practice distance from your pets. They can carry the drops with which the virus is moved from person to person.
Areas that are often touched should be cleaned every day. This includes countertops, kitchen utensils, door handles, sinks, toilets, handrails, light switches, remote controls and furniture.
Wear gloves if possible, give these high touch surfaces a mild wash with soap and water, and then take a new passport with antimicrobial disinfectant to dry or spray if you have them.
If you do not have cleansing liquids, you may want to make your own raw materials.
Without storing unnecessarily large stashes with objects, it is a good idea to add some staples. Dried beans and rice are a good starting point. Canned fish, frozen greens and pasta are also good.
Many supermarkets and even online retailers are experiencing limited deliveries right now, but when the initial flood disappears, they expect more goods to be available. Stay calm and work with what you have. If you do not have all the emergency accessories you need, take a moment to fill in these gaps.
If you can, secure an advance of any medication needed that may be one to three months.  Coronavirus Home Care
If anyone in your home is ill, contact their healthcare provider immediately and follow all advice carefully. If the person's symptoms are mild, their doctor will probably advise them to stay home.
Few people who are comfortable in their own room under the weather as much as possible and try not to share a bathroom or other common space with them. Restrict or prevent visitors, avoid shared contact with household items and keep pets separate from anyone experiencing symptoms.
If they can, people experiencing symptoms should wear some form of face mask to limit the risk of spread.
If possible, keep the heat on the higher side – the virus may be less likely to spread in warmer areas with higher humidity.
Several health authorities recommend avoiding using ibuprofen for symptoms of coronavirus, but the details of this problem are not yet clear
This is an exciting time for the whole world. Contact your family and friends and continue with these lines of communication. We will all feel better and be better able to help those in urgent need.
