Most parents have been taking extra precautions to guard their little ones against the coronavirus. Times such as these require all of us to be extra vigilant.

Here is where you can get yours in Jakarta.

  • Why use hand sanitizers?

    Washing your hands with soap and water is most effective in removing germs, but running water and soap might not always be readily available for you, a hand sanitizer is a good alternative. Alcohol in hand sanitizers inactivate microbes, such as bacteria and viruses. But it has to contain at least 60% alcohol and check that it hasn’t expired.

  • Different types of hand sanitizers

    There are basically 3 types of hand sanitizers, liquid, gel, and foam. To ensure effectiveness, hand sanitizers need to be rubbed on all parts of the hand until everything evaporates. Gel and foam sanitizers do not slide off as easily as the liquid ones, but liquid ones do evaporate faster. Unfortunately, the stock is low in most pharmacies and stores throughout Jakarta, but it is possible to get them online.

  • How to take good care of yourself with local products

    Indonesians drink jamu, a herbal drink made out of turmeric, tamarind, and ginger for general well-being and to boost immunity. There is a lot of sun in Indonesia, and with fewer cars and pollution in the air, get some exercise but remember to practice social distancing. Find something fun to do at home to stay sane. Do all these while practicing good hygiene and wear a mask if you have flu symptoms.
