How Should You Prepare for a Pandemic

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The time of pandemic can cause panic among people due to its seriousness and potentially increasing fatality rate. The World Health Organization declares a pandemic when a virus causes stress to a wide population’s health. The pandemic can spread quickly, and people can start showing the symptoms, although many are likely to survive. There is no need for panic in such conditions as WHO provides instructions on how to deal with a pandemic. Common instructions, like staying at home, are released for children and the elderly first. The businesses may also close down with the increasing severity of the pandemic. The time of pandemic can also can interruptions in supply and cause economic repercussions. Here we look at how prepared we should be when a pandemic occurs.

Before the pandemic

When the news of a pandemic reaches across borders, the nations have their own policies to prevent any infected people from entering the country and protecting their citizens. They create health programs to help diagnose the problem while also issuing general advice to the public. WHO provides a list of ways to authorities and individuals to prevent any contact with the pandemic.


The family members were asked to take precautions and plan what they will do when any of the members fall sick. If an elderly falls sick, they need to plan who will manage their kids and pets during the pandemic.

The communities should prepare for the things that would face disruptions during the pandemic time. Experts suggest two weeks of drinking water and food is the basic requirement. Canned foods, 3.7L of drinking water for every person, food for pets, and necessary nutrients are necessary. You can start preparing early by buying a little extra everything you head to the market instead of hoarding supplies in one day.

Every family member should also have the necessary medical records that may get asked during medical checkups. Make sure everyone with a prescription is topped with their supply of medicine for a long time. Check the first aid kit and refill anything that you might need again. Keep all the cleaning supplies available in your toilets, kitchens, and shelves.

During the pandemic

When the pandemic reaches your neighborhood, you should not forget to keep yourself clean. Cover up your mouth and nose with masks and avoid sneezing or coughing openly in public. Even while wearing a mask, you must be careful of going to public places.

Keep your hands clean at all times with soap and alcohol-based sanitizer. Any physical contact with a stranger can spread the virus and affect your health. In case you are sick, cut off all your contacts for a while. Isolate yourself in a zone where none of your family members or friends should be allowed without masks.
