When it comes to low-tech tools that help us fight the novel coronavirus pandemic, everyone knows about the two most important things. First and foremost, you need to wear a face mask at all times when you’re not inside your home. Amazon’s best-selling face masks are on sale right now for just 50¢ each, and you can get a 10-pack of popular JB Medical KN95 face masks on sale for $24.94. Second, you need strong hand sanitizer. Small bottles of Purell hand sanitizer are actually in stock right now at Amazon, and you can get larger bottles of best-selling Medex Labs hand sanitizer with the same formulation at a much better price.
There are also some high-tech tools that you should definitely have on hand in the age of the coronavirus. The first is a pulse oximeter, which is a fantastic device to have on hand if you’re exhibiting some symptoms but you’re not certain if you have the flu or COVID-19. This little device measures the oxygen level in your blood which should be somewhere between 95% and 100% when you’re healthy. Some coronavirus patients have been found with readings as low as 50%, and anything under 90% is considered by the Mayo Clinic to be unhealthy.
Finally, you definitely need a good thermometer that’s accurate and can deliver fast temperature readings. The iHealth No-Touch Infrared Forehead Thermometer is the best-selling model on Amazon and it’s finally back in stock. What’s more, there’s a discount and a coupon available if you hurry. Regularly checking for a fever is considered by many to be even more important than reading blood oxygen levels, so definitely grab an iHealth thermometer before they sell out again.iHealth No-Touch Forehead Thermometer, Digital Infrared Thermometer for Adults and Kids, Touchl… List Price:$54.99 Price:$51.98 You Save:$35.00 (64%) Available from Amazon, BGR may receive a commission
