CoronaVirus Food List: What To Buy To Stock Up: Here is the basic quarantine shopping list for your home. From last week, as the corona pandemic is on peak and we are all quarantined at home.
Although its a difficult time but its a high time to stock up your food and essential accessories so you can easily live at home without any issues and problems. As you know the number of cases reported worldwide is increasing day by day so taking extra measures to stay safe is recommended for everyone.
Unfortunately, social distancing is advisable in real-time for an indefinite period.
So eating proper food, in fact, healthy and nutritious food is the most prior requirement of this time.
Why? I am saying this...
Because building a strong immune system is the only way to fight with corona. If you will not eat, healthy and nutritious food then your body will not be able to fight with coronavirus (COVID19).
It's the responsibility of home managers to fully stocked up your house with essential and recommended food items.
During surfing the internet, I found many queries that people are asking in groups and forums like what to eat and what to keep in their kitchen shelves and refrigerator.
If you are having any sort of coronavirus symptoms like fever, breathing issues, cough then immediately consult with your doctor or emergency center in your country.
Before moving to the shopping list, we have to know in fact people are also asking that; coronavirus transmit through food?
Apparently there is no evidence of corona transmit through food. But it's recommended to cook food at high temperature especially while cooking meat. Cooking at high temperatures kills bacterias so incorporate high temperatures in your cooking.
Food hygiene is equally important so be extra cautious about it. Don't forget to sanitize your hands while working...
Avoid unpacked food items and cooked dishes as you don't know who made it. Coughing, sneezing, and flu can make the food more inappropriate for eating.
