Willdorf's definitive guide to avoiding the Coronavirus
*Most if not all of these things are unproven, and of course will not 100% prevent you from getting the virus. This is a collection of best practices, which if you do most or at least some of them, you should be able to drastically reduce the chances of contracting the virus.
*Organization and citations coming soon
$ - Not to do with avoiding the virus, but helpful economically
- If you can work from home, do so
- If you work a essential job that deals with the public, like at stores, supermarkets, or pharmacies, get a mask and wear it whenever you're out of your home (see below)
- $ - If you've lost your job due to closures, look for work in other sectors. Delivery needs will increase. Amazon is hiring more workers, as will other services that deliver products, including grocery stores and pharmacies that will most likely offer local delivery.
- Wash your hands with soap and water as much as you can and especially before eating.
- If you can't wash your hands, use hand sanitizer, but don't use this too much as it can cause your skin to crack and actually increase infection risk.
- If you have to go out of the house, use hand sanitizer right before you're coming home. If you can, remove as much clothes as you can at the door and then go directly to wash your hands and take a shower.
- If you can't get hand sanitizer, mix 2 parts everclear with 1 part aloe vera juice and put in small spray bottle, 3-4 squirts on each hand and rub till dry (guide coming)
- Get 3% hydrogen peroxide and dilute to 1% by mixing 1 part with 2 parts water. Put in a spray bottle. This is the most effective virus killer that is safe on fabrics and non-toxic. You can spray this on nearly anything to disinfect.
- If walking down the sidewalk, stay as far to the right as you can (in the USA, lol i think maybe where they drive on the left side, they walk on the left side?) , and try to keep 10 feet behind anyone.
- Exercise. Eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. Hydrate. Stop smoking and switch to patch or gum. Stay healthy so your immune system can have a better chance if you do get it.
- Because gyms are closed or will be, get a bike if you don't already have one, and use that to exercise. Also, use it to get to work if you can rather than bus or train, where it's much easier to pick up the virus.
- Order your groceries to be delivered if you can afford it. If not, go less often and stock up on frozen fruit and veggies, or learn how to freeze certain fresh fruits, vegetables, bread, etc.
