FAQs

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) RELATED:

Survivalism is about staying prepared, and the essence of it is that you stay rational and do not panic. Here are some general advice on the virus pandemic from the World Health Organization. Stay calm, informed, and be careful.

Is it safe to receive packages from areas where COVID-19 has been reported?

Yes. The likelihood of an infected person contaminating commercial goods is low and the risk of catching the virus that causes COVID-19 from a package that has been moved, travelled, and exposed to different conditions and temperature is also low.

Prevention:

1. Wash your hands frequently.
2. Maintain social distancing (1m/3ft) between yourself and anyone coughing or sneezing.
3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth to prevent the risk of virus transferring to your body.
4. Cover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze.
5. Stay at home if you feel unwell with mild symptoms and allow medical facilities to operate more effectively by protecting yourself and others from possible COVID-19 and other viruses.
6. If you develop a fever, cough and breathing difficulty, seek medical advice promptly.
7. Keep up to date on the latest virus hotspots and avoid traveling to these places, especially if you are an older person or have diabetes, heart or lung disease.

High Risk Groups:

Older persons and persons with pre-existing medical conditions (such as high blood pressure, heart disease, lung disease, cancer or diabetes) appear to develop serious illness more often than others.

Ineffective Measures:

Smoking, wearing multiple face masks, taking antibiotics.

In any case, if you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing seek medical care early to reduce the risk of developing a more severe infection and be sure to share your recent travel history with your health care provider.
