COVID-19 is probably the most used term since the end of 2019. What was first identified in Wuhan City, China, amid an outbreak of respiratory illness, later spread to almost all countries of the world. The disease spread, affecting billions and being a reason of more than 2 million deaths worldwide. The only way to stop the spread of this was wearing PPE supplies, washing hands with soap and water or sanitizers, and maintaining distance of at least 6 feet.
What are PPE Supplies?
Personal Protective Equipment, which we commonly refer to as PPE supplies, are a must for medical practitioners and sanitation workers. And the basic face covering and sanitizers for all across the world. The more we keep our face covered, faster we shall be able to curb the virus, and stop it from spreading.
As stated by the medical experts and World Health Organisation, this virus will be staying with us for a long time now, so why not make wearing masks a practice and stay safe?
A few things, with which probably most of us are acquainted, belong to the giant bracket of PPE supplies.
Face masks would be the first member of PPE Supplies. Face masks are cloth coverings that cover our face and mouth so that the water droplets don’t escape while we speak, cough or sneeze. Masks can be disposable or the 2-ply or 3-ply reusable cloth ones. All work fine to fight COVID-19. But we need to keep in mind how to use and dispose of the masks. Washing hands after wearing or disposing masks is mandatory.
Next come the disposable polythene aprons. These aprons are a part of PPE supplies and are very helpful for all kinds of healthcare professionals and sanitation workers. They are engaged in a profession that they come across with a lot of human beings, so they have to take care of themselves so that they don’t get infected.
Face shields, sanitizers, gloves, head coverings, no-touch infrared forehead thermometers too are a part of PPE supplies. Scroll down to read more about PPE supplies in details.
