Covid VS People of the World!

JUST SHARING!!! COVID SURVIVAL PLAYBOOK:

31st of March, 2021 – around 10:26pm (Philippine Time)

Step by step reminder!

The situation is getting worse and the people whom we rely upon to help solve this crisis are already overwhelmed. We therefore have to start thinking of what we can do to help us cope with this pandemic. The question is what can those without any medical training do to help solve a medical emergency like Covid? Unlike the frontliners, we have been mere spectators up to now, watching and busily isolating and protecting ourselves and our families. However, at this stage we also need to think of what else we can do to help.

In this regard, we thought of initiating a Covid Survival Playbook – a comprehensive step by step procedure that anybody can refer to during this Pandemic. Although it may not guarantee survival, we hope that it will help improve our chances of beating this virus. We however reiterate that our initial version is simply a compilation of information that though we think are useful, may not be applicable to everybody.

There may even be those who would not agree to some of the items here. It is for this reason that we are sending this to you so you can participate by filling in, correcting or adding other details to make this playbook as comprehensive as possible. COVID SURVIVAL PLAYBOOK
