The onset of the pandemic came as a surprise for everyone. No one was really expecting it to happen. The advancement of technology in the world is beyond everyone thought it will be. Despite this, a simple flu like virus penetrated the world and no amount of technology up to date, had it figured out. The risk of the coronavirus infection depends on many factors, mainly: the type of surface contaminated, the amount of virus shed from the individual, the time the individual spent in the setting, and the time since the individual was last in the setting. COVID-19 spreads from person to person through small droplets, aerosols and through direct contact. Surfaces and belongings can also be contaminated with COVID-19 when people with the infection cough or sneeze or touch them. The risk of spread is greatest when people are close to each other, especially in poorly ventilated indoor spaces and when people spend a lot of time together in the same room. With this in mind, it is equally important to make sure that we are properly cleaning  our houses. Instakart, a Davao online grocery and delivery, is the best place to go for this kind of problem. With our disinfectant bundles, you are sure to have everything you need within reach. 

Cleaning and disinfecting. Making sure that our place is regularly cleaned and disinfected can keep us away from the virus. Decluttering and using disinfectants like detergents and bleach will make all the difference. As a minimum, frequently touched surfaces should be wiped down twice a day, and one of these should be at the beginning or the end of the working day. Cleaning should be more frequent depending on the number of people using the space, whether they are entering and exiting the setting and access to handwashing and hand-sanitising facilities. Cleaning of frequently touched surfaces is particularly important in bathrooms and communal kitchens.

Kitchen. According to the Public Health England, “it is very unlikely that COVID-19 is transmitted through food. However, as a matter of good hygiene practice, anyone handling food should wash their hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before doing so. Crockery and eating utensils should not be shared. Clean frequently touched surfaces regularly.” Proper wearing of a mask or face shield is also necessary to ensure that everyone in the area is safe. 

Bathrooms. This is the place where we clean ourselves which in turn means, this is the place that we have to regularly disinfect. Secure hand washing area on this one and be mindful of the frequently touched areas.
