2. Explore ways to connect and volunteer

Donating

The pandemic affects far more people than just those who contract COVID-19. Medical professionals are struggling without enough protective gear while low-income children are wondering how they'll get their next meal. And millions of Indians are facing unemployment as cities and states around the India issue shelter-in-place orders to halt the spread of the virus.

What can you do to help? There are nonprofit and charitable organizations that are stepping into provide assistance, from delivering medical supplies to provide meals. Many are urgently seeking donation to continue to their work in these uncertain times.

Giving beyond money

If you're looking to give something other than a monetary donation, consider donating blood through a local blood center.
You can also sign up to be a Robin-Hood-Army in your city. You can volunteer to distribute food. You can donate clothes to poor and needy people.


3. Don't panic-buy , and don't stock masks that health care workers who are constantly exposed to the virus desperately need.

Please do not buy more than a few weeks worth of supplies at a time. Panic-buying massive amounts of toilet paper and cleaning supplies won't make this problem better , and it might hurt those in need. Grocery stores are already struggling to keep up with demand for sometimes as everyone panics and buys too much. Try not to strain the system further or some people in your community won't have access to items they need.

4. If you have recovered from the coronavirus you can donate blood plasma to help others who are infected. Those who have not had the coronavirus can also donate to help witha national shortage.

Donating blood is an important way to help hospitals systems. Healthy individuals who have not had the coronavirus can donate blood to help patients who may need transfusions for procedures like organ transplants , trauma accidents , or childbirth.

5. Finally , stay inside and do your part to flatten this curve.

One of the most important ways you can help yourself and others during the COVID-19 pandemic is to prevent the spread of illness. To do so it's crucial to follow these guidelines .

. Stay home (especially if you're sick) unless you absolutely need to leave.
. If you are out , keep your distance from others (about six feet). Avoid groups of 10 or more.
. Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough (into your elbow or use a tissue).
. Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Frequently. You can use hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol if you're on the go.
. Clean and disinfect areas in your home you frequently touch.
