As of today, there are already more than 70,000 recorded cases of COVID-19 in the Philippines. Although more than 24,000 have already recovered, the death toll stands at 1,871. The University of the Philippines (UP) predicts that the number of cases will continue to rise and may even be over 100,000 by the end of August.
With what’s happening right now, it is probable that each of us has a family, friend, or know anyone who may have contracted the infection, and some of whom may have tragically passed away due to the virus. Our hearts go to each and every one of those who have been affected by this health crisis.
However, we need to keep moving forward. As lockdown rules ease everywhere, we need to be prepared as the world opens up. The virus is still around so we need to protect ourselves as we gradually move into the new normal. As we do this, here are some essentials worth having at home to keep safe and protected from the virus. You can conveniently shop for these and more online.
