There is still so much to learn when it comes to coronavirus. Researchers and experts are yet to release a statement that coincides with what the other says. In example, how many days does the virus stay on surfaces? Is it really airborne? With everything that is going on, it cannot be helped to worry and overthink our safety and that of our loved ones. More often than not, most of us run to our beliefs like tuob, drinking twice as much vitamins, making DIY hand sanitizers and disinfectants, honestly, the list goes on. When Filipinos are faced with problems, we are known to be resilient. We innovate our way through almost everything. But in a global crisis like this, should we take the risk?
The government has released a list of safety protocols and guidelines to follow in these times-- wearing masks, social distancing, cancelling all major events, implementing barangay passes. Despite following all these, there is still a chance of catching the virus. With that in mind, how can we make sure that we are extra safe?
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention states that the first thing we should be mindful is cleaning and disinfecting our households. There is a significant difference between the two but the entire process will not be complete without the other. The CDCP defines cleaning as “the removal of germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces. It does not kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.” Whilst disinfecting refers to “using chemicals, for example, EPA-registered disinfectants, to kill germs on surfaces. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs, but by killing germs on a surface after cleaning, it can further lower the risk of spreading infection.” In order to be safe, both should be applied wisely.
This only means that in our new normal, disinfectant kits are an integral pantry essential. However, with this being a widely known fact, disinfectants are the first products off the shelves of most markets. This is why with our goal to provide you a safe channel in the midst of this chaos, Instakart, a Davao online grocery and delivery, has made disinfectants available in our store.
