    DIY Homemade Hand Sanitizer

    At times when hand washing is not an option, we turn to hand sanitizers. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends a minimum alcohol strength of 60% for effectiveness against COVID-19.

    The three main ingredients are alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, and glycerin. Alcohol should preferably have a 91-99% concentration as it will be diluted in the process. Hydrogen peroxide is used to deactivate contaminating bacteria in the solution and glycerin functions as a humectant to combat the drying effects of alcohol. Glycerin is the emollient of choice as it is the cheapest though others can be used as shown in other formulas below. Water is an essential part of this formula as it opens up bacterial pores that allow the alcohol to penetrate and kill bacterial cells.

     

    WHO (World Health Organization)-recommended hand sanitizer formula:
    1 cup isopropyl/ethanol/rubbing alcohol 99% (see below for 70% alcohol)*
    1 Tbsp hydrogen peroxide 3%
    1 tsp glycerin/glycerol/aloe vera/emollient of choice
    5 Tbsp of water

    Steps:
    1) Clean your container with dishwashing soap and water, let dry. If heat-resistant, dip in hot water to disinfect.|
    2) Put in alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, glycerin, and water through a funnel
    3) Shake container well to ensure the sanitizer is mixed thoroughly
    *When using the commonly available 70% rubbing alcohol, eliminate the hydrogen peroxide. This formula dilutes the alcohol strength to 66%, slightly higher than the minimum recommended 60% alcohol strength.
     
    WHO-approved simple scented formula
    2 parts 91-99% alcohol*
    1 part aloe vera gel/vitamin E oil/glycerin/glycerol
    Few drops of essential oils (eucalyptus, lavender, citrus, etc.)

    Repeat the same process as above.

    Remember that the first choice of action is to wash your hands with soap and water, especially if the hands are visibly dirty. Frequent hand washing is one of the most effective ways to protect yourself against COVID-19. If you, your family, or your employees need to get tested for Covid-19, the safest and most convenient way is through an on-site mobile testing team that comes to you instead of queueing in more populated areas. Via Medica International offers on-site Covid-19 testing.

    DIY Anti-Covid 19 Face Mask

    As of the 3rd of April 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone wear a cloth face mask when leaving home. Cloth face masks are essential in protecting yourself and people around you.

    Covid-19 spreads through droplets from coughing, talking, or sneezing. Covid-19 carriers can be symptomatic (fever, colds &  flu) and asymptomatic so it's the safest bet to keep a face mask on at all times in addition to maintaining a 6-foot distance in social areas.

    The CDC recommends the use of cloth face masks above all the other kinds. N95 masks and surgical masks should be reserved for healthcare workers. Below is an instructional guideline on creating a quick and easy and no-sew face mask:

    Sewn Face Mask:
    - an old t-shirt, linens or any cotton cloth
    - rubber bands, hair ties or garters
    - scissors

    The face mask must:

    - let you breathe comfortably
    - completely cover your nose and mouth 

    - tightly but comfortably fit against your face
    - includes more than one layer of fabric

    Avoid towels and stretchable fabrics as they may not wrap your face snugly. A layer of cotton with 2 layers of natural silk or chiffon is what the American Chemical Society has determined as the most effective fabric to use as face masks. The combination of mechanical and electrostatic filtration of hybrid fabrics provide a more effective filter against droplets. It should be noted that the masks should be properly fitted against gaps and leakage. Not doing so will decrease the mask efficiency by 60%.

    Face masks and hand washing are essential against the fight against Covid-19. If you, your family, or your employees need to get tested for Covid-19, the safest and most convenient way is through an on-site mobile testing team that comes to you instead of queueing in more populated areas. Via Medica International offers on-site Covid-19 testing.
