Coronavirus is still wreaking havoc and while governments everywhere are doing everything in their power, it is us, who can really make a difference. To begin with, avoid going out until necessary, and stock up on Covid essentials to fight the virus lurking around. 


For your benefit, here's a list of the 8 most important things you should have at your disposal at all times.


1. N-95 Mask

By now, the N-95 mask should be a part of your routine. The virus isn't slowing down but we can definitely lower the chances of infection by wearing a mask outside... or even when we are with the guests.

2. Pulse Oximeter

As a consequence of coronavirus, we can now monitor pulse oximetry (a method of determining oxygen levels in the blood) at the comfort of our homes.

This equipment measures the blood oxygen level drop with a single click. A useful apparatus to have during Covid, which can tell you if you need medical intervention.  



3. Home Testing Covid Kit

It is now possible to take Covid tests on our own, reducing the burden on government and private facilities.

The home-testing kit comes with a set of instructions and easy-to-follow steps, along with the supplies you'll need for testing. This kit can save precious hours when you're dealing with major Covid symptoms.



4. Vitamin C Tablets (chewable)

We owe our body's health to our immune system. But it's high time we gave it the boost it deserves. Enter vitamin C tablets. This micronutrient supports important body cellular functions which in turn contributes to the immune defence system.

One to two tablets a day (consult a physician) will keep viral infections at bay. 



5. Paracetamol

Indian households can fall short of salt and spices, but not paracetamol. Be it common cold, flu-like symptoms or high fever, this essential medicine works fast towards the remedy. However, we'd still advise going to the doctor if these symptoms are prolonged.

6. Throat Soothing Strepsils

An itchy throat is a sure sign of a viral infection. This is where it starts and this is where it hurts the most. We highly recommend throat-soothing lozenges like Strepsils for instant relief. 



7. Hand Sanitiser

Clean hands during a deadly pandemic can save your life. Wherever you go, always, always carry a hand sanitiser.

8. Temperature Gun

Taking accurate body temperatures without the risk of transmitting the infection, is everything we need during Covid. These temperature guns use infrared technology that is safer and much more reliable than regular thermometers. What's even better is, they don't cost much.
