The Coronavirus outbreak has reached 185 countries, with more than 276,462 thousand infected and more than 11,417 dead and recovered more than 91,954 worldwide. More and more countries are taking drastic measures to prevent the spread of the virus. An important step is a quarantine, which is to isolate the affected or suspected person. Due to its extreme shape, the entire area, cities, and countries are quarantined (as is the case in Italy) with few facilities operating at a normal level.
The fear of being quarantined has created a phenomenon called panic buying, as people try to stock up on food and other items to meet their needs during this time. This unexpected question created scenes in which people fought each other in messages about small objects. It is very important that we, as responsible citizens and individuals, communicate calmly and avoid panic attacks. This only happens if we know how to prepare for quarantine.
To avoid a run-up in facilities and hassle, it is a wise decision if you are preparing for a coronavirus outbreak. It won’t hurt if you prepare for quarantine for many days at home. This preparation should take up to two weeks or it would overload delivery to lose everything of the grocery store shelves, creating further difficulties.
