COVID-19 has changed our lives in a way we never imagine. Who could have thought the day will come that breathing fresh air could be fatal to our health? And yet, here we are living in that reality.
With that, we listed five COVID-19 essentials you should have to protect yourself against this deadly disease. Afterall, it is better to be safe than sorry and prevention is better than cure.
- Reusable face mask
Let’s admit it, buying one time use 3-ply face mask every day is a bit expensive. Thankfully, technology paved way for the availability of reusable face masks equipped to efficiently filtrate microbial and airborne particles, just like the Pacsafe Silver Ion face mask.
- Face shield
Because filtering our breathing is not enough, covering our whole face with a face shield is now a must, especially when you’re in a public space. And because our government declared this mandatory, face shield is now available almost everywhere even in the sari-sari store near you.
- Portable personal purifier
As we are fighting an invisible enemy, now more than ever, being OA (overacting) is not bad. After covering your face with a mask and a shield, it’s time to filter the air you breathe with portable personal purifier.
Wearable purifier helps in reducing variety of air pollutants such as PM2.5, smoke, odor, formaldehyde, volatile organic compounds, and allergens.
- UV sanitizing pen
To avoid the spread of COVID-19 virus, limiting outside activities is highly recommended and that’s include buying our daily needs. With that, there’s a high demand for only shopping, still, disinfecting every item you will receive is highly encouraged. You can do that with the help of UV sanitizing pen.
It’s no secret that ultraviolet light is an effective option for sanitation as it destroys the molecular bond that holds together the DNA of viruses and bacteria, regardless of drug resistance. This is why at-home methods of UV sterilization have been getting a lot of attention lately because of its efficacy.
- Antimicrobial copper film
We can’t sanitize all items we have especially our gadgets such as laptop and smartphones. In South Korea, they are using The Dr. Cu Antimicrobial Copper Film. This is verified by the Korean Government, Seoul Metropolitan Fire and Disasters Headquarters, National Fire Fighter, and certified by the U.S Environment Protection Agency (EPA), in providing 24/7 protection against cross-contamination of bacterial and viruses.
This antibacterial coatings can play an important role in reducing infections and bacterial transmission via inanimate surfaces, and it’s now available in the Philippines through Urbanize Lifestyle stores.
