As there is no lockdown, we can roam outside but the second wave of COVID-19 in India is hitting the country hard. There is a huge risk factor of getting infected because this second wave of coronavirus in India is so dangerous and spreading very fast. Well, relaxations are there in going from one place to another as compared to previous lockdown phases but one thing is the same, i.e. ‘Coronavirus’. Some offices, IT firms, and other companies are also allowed to be operated with approx. 50% or more efficiency whereas some states are under complete lockdown. Well, whatever the situation is, we can just keep ourselves safe by taking more and more precautions, and also, we must pray for the rest of the world to be safe and a happy place for the survival of humankind.
In this worst situation, we all have to step outside for grocery, for office, and other essential services, but there are some essentials items that everyone should keep with themselves when they step out from their homes during this second wave of coronavirus in India. Let’s have a look.
A Hand Sanitizer
Hand sanitizer is the best option to go for where the use of soap or liquid hand-wash is not reliable. When you step out of your home for office or for buying groceries, you have to deal with a lot of public places and the probability of getting the infection is highest at such places.
Hand sanitizer is one of the COVID-19 essentials thus, keeping a hand sanitizer with you in your bag can be your saviour there. Within a couple of seconds, you can get rid of such bacteria and viruses just by rubbing the sanitizer on your hands.
Especially to deal with the second wave of Coronavirus in India, govt and other health agencies have advised using such sanitizer which contains between 60-70% alcohol content in it.

By seeing the peak of cases of coronavirus, almost all the people are on alert. All people have to manage their work along with their health during coronavirus pandemic. You have to go to the office and for other works; nothing is in our hands except taking proper precautions so that we will not get infected with the second wave of coronavirus in India.
The face mask is another essential precaution that you must take whenever you step out of your home. As we know, coronavirus can be transmitted from one person to another by tiny droplets that come out when a person sneezes or coughs. A face mask can act as a shield between the tiny droplets and your nose and mouth.
Social distancing and the use of face masks are highly recommended when you step out of your house during this pandemic. We request all to keep your mouth and nose covered with a face mask whenever needed. Now, Indian authorities have also advised wearing a double mask as it may help you to be on the safer side.
Sorry girls, our sympathy is with you. It may be very difficult for you to carry a face mask over your makeup. But, NO CHOICE! Make face mask your all-time friend and carry it with you while stepping out.
