The Coronavirus also known as COVID-19 is a worldwide pandemic we are all facing. To help our fellow friends, neighbors and family and not to forget all those working in the hospitals working overtime in overdrive to save as much as possible lives, we should first of all stay at home and improve our hygiene.
Improving our hygiene by washing our hands and also applying hand sanitizer can help prevent infection and spreading the coronavirus / Covid-19.
Now people have been panic buying whatever they can get their hands on. So it can be that hand sanitizers are sold out and someone could have a decade’s worth of supply. Shame! Ok, so not only are we facing this pandemic, but also we are shortage in some essentials that could help prevent infection and spreading the virus.
This article describes how to make your own hand sanitizer that can potentially kill the coronavirus / covid-19. It is important that the hand sanitizer you make is a solution (alcohol mixture) of above 60%.
Disclaimer: Do not eat or drink this. If you are already infected with the virus call the doctor/hospital. This hand sanitizer is to help prevent and spreading the coronavirus but we all have to be vigilant and carefull.
