Stock of supplies – pandemic necessity!

It is becoming increasingly apparent that people all over the world should understand what “stock of supplies – pandemic necessity” is all about! As Health organizations all over the world are monitoring the spread of this very contagious swine flu in various parts of the world – it is obvious that this disease is going to tarry a while! The best way to combat this disease is to stay away from others and try to isolate yourself as far as possible.

Apart from taking the usual measures recommended by Health Authorities like wearing a face mask or a N95 respirator, washing one’s hands often with soap and water, etc it is advisable to stay at home. Proper planning and careful scheduling will play a major role in getting self sufficient. Supplies like food and water will be most important. Once the swine flu pandemic spreads to your hometown, there is likelihood of shortage of food. Visiting the grocery store would become a risk therefore you should see that you have a good supply of food in your house.

Lean cuts of meat and frozen vegetables can be kept safely for long periods. Dry items in bulk can be kept in containers. These could be fruit, oatmeal, lentils and grain, dried beans etc that are nutrient rich, long shelf-life and inexpensive. Canned foods can be stocked up in preparation for the flu pandemic. These do offer convenience and variety. It is a good idea to avoid foods that have fats. A good supply of bottled water is important.

Personal and environmental hygiene and sanitization is a top priority. The Smittstopp spray is one such product that ensures your safety from all viruses and bacteria in the air. All one has to do is spray the surfaces with the spray. This spray works on the principle of “electrostatic attraction”. Once it is sprayed, it leaves a very thin layer of cationic (positively charged) polymer behind on the surface. This attracts the negatively charged (anionic) microorganisms (viruses and bacteria) in the air towards it, and proceeds to destroy them in seconds!

The Smittstopp spray should be made mandatory by the health authorities. All public areas that are likely to be contaminated like public toilets, malls, shopping arcades, amusement parts, clinics and hospitals, hotels and restaurants, pubs, libraries and most importantly – schools and educational institutions should be sprayed with the Smittstopp spray so that all risks are eliminated and the public is safe. The surfaces of all switches, door knobs and handles, banister railings, taps, lift buttons, table tops, etc should be sprayed too.

Personal items like keys, spectacles, cell phones, items of jewelry, and clothing should be sprayed with the Smittstopp spray to ensure one’s safety. The facemask also can be sprayed inside out. Clothes that have been sprayed with this spray have retained their protection from viruses even after a number of washes! No common spray or cleaner should be used on top of the Smittstopp spray because they are negatively charged and will neutralize the electrostatic attraction effect!

Therefore to understand the phrase “stock of supplies – pandemic necessity” is to realize how deadly and serious the pandemic can become if it is prolonged and how important it is to minimize contact with the public during one.
