COVID-19 Outbreak How Best To Prepare and Cope

The COVID-19 outbreak has caused significant concern, not only in regard to the illness it causes, but also to the implications on daily life

Preparation is truly fundamental to success and should further measures be required including the possibility of a widespread quarantine, being prepared will help reduce potential distress.

   

Dr Direct 4U and our HealthCare Professionals have created a checklist of items you may want to consider having on hand. The intention is not to create panic but rather to promote a sense of empowerment through action. This list is not specific to COVID-19 but rather items that may come in handy if you are required to stay home for any reason, including illness, power outages, or as a result of a natural disaster.

Please note, this is not meant to replace advice or treatment recommendations by healthcare professionals, nor is it a personalized plan tailored to your individual needs. The suggestions included here are meant as a proactive guideline only.
