While the pandemic is winding down in some parts of the world, it's still vital to have the right medical supplies on hand. Read to learn more.

Medical Supplier

There's no doubt about it; the COVID-19 pandemic is the defining moment of the early 21st century. The effects have been vast, and over 3 million people have died — almost no country has been spared. There's no telling what sort of effect this event will have on world politics in the years to come.

Thankfully, we're beginning to see the end of it in the United States. With vaccines rolling out, social distancing guidelines being observed, and advancements in medical supplies, life is beginning to return to normal. 

However, we're not out of it yet. Around 8,000 people a day are still dying from Covid; these are people's families and friends. There's also always the threat of another surge, like the tragic one devastating India right now.

If you work in a hospital, dental office, clinic, or as an essential worker, this is especially distressing for you. You have to live with the knowledge of knowing that people's lives are in your hands.

Thankfully, there's help. If you stay on top of the best medical equipment available on the market, you'll be better able to provide protection. This article will walk you through some of the best equipment out there.

Personal Protective Equipment

Personal protective equipment or PPE is the first thing that comes to mind when people think of pandemic supplies. However, just because they're ubiquitous doesn't mean they're not important to get right. Some masks work better than others, and if we want to get out of this pandemic, we would have to emphasize the quality of equipment.

Masks

The face mask has become the symbol of the pandemic. Whether it's the traditional disposable medical mask, a mask with a message on it, or a fashionable mask worn by celebrities, the mask has become a sign of the times.

We all know how important masks are, but the quality of masks can't be emphasized enough. Neck gaiters and bandanas were out early on for not effectively stopping droplets from getting out.

So what are your best options?

Well, our 3 Ply Disposable Consumer Face Mask is the perfect option for any medical professional. They come cheap, durable, and soft, with their comfortable ear loops making them optimal to wear all day. They're only selling for just under $11 now (and that's for a pack of fifty), so this is a great option to stack up on masks.

Many medical facilities require patients to wear the masks provided by the facility to make sure their masks are up to snuff. We understand this, and it's a very safe option. However, if you want to save some money, save the environment, and stay protected, there are other options.

While you should still give out the disposable masks to patients, consider buying a Washable and Reusable Waiting Room Face Mask for yourself and your employees.

Face Shields

Wearing a mask is all well and good for the public, but you're going to be seeing a lot of people every day, a lot of very likely people COVID positive. If you're in the medical field, face shields are among the most important things you can have in your medical supply stock.

Our Clear Co-poly Hinged Face Shield is a safe, smart option. Coming in at under $15, it's cheaper than some masks you find! This elastic-banded face mask is perfect for keeping your employees safe.

But that's not all. There are also options for disposable face shields in case you need maximum protection on the go.

Respirators

A face shield is all well and good, but you're going to need something that will give you an extra layer of protection. If you're in the medical profession, look into buying a disposable respirator — a type of facial protection reminiscent of a mask that locks tightly to the face and keeps out particles extremely efficiently.

Our 3 Ply Disposable Medical Face Mask is the perfect respirator for your staff. They're a bit expensive, so you can't give them to everyone who comes through your door, but they're perfect for those essential workers who are dealing with the ill every day.

Investing in respirators sends a message to your employees and patients that you care. Taking all the steps you can to keep your employees from getting sick means taking all the precautions you can and fighting the pandemic at every front.

Hand Sanitizer

Early on in the pandemic, the role of hand sanitizer was exaggerated to a nigh-comic degree. People were hoarding bottles of hand sanitizer and paying exorbitant prices for them online. Many social media campaigns spread the importance of hand sanitizer while not saying anything about masks.

Thankfully, people began to understand the importance of masks and sanitizer-mania dyed down. However, hand sanitizer is still essential. If you don't have the time to wash your hands thoroughly, you need to have hand sanitizer around to keep you safe.

Soapopular Alcohol-free Hand Sanitizer Foam is a foam hand-sanitizer that's known to kill many common germs. The product comes with 1000 applications per bottle, so if you buy a few of them, they'll last you a while.

But you really don't need to worry about running out. The Soapopular Alcohol-free Hand Sanitizer Refill is a 4-liter refill tank designed to keep your soapopular dispenser full at all times. If you want to load up on Soapopular hand sanitizer and don't want to spend too much money, this refill tank is perfect for you.

But there are other options. If you need some quick sanitizer that you can take on the go, consider the Skip The Germs Antibacterial Hand Soap Flip Top Bottle. This is perfect for you if you ever get called away from the office and need to keep your hands clean.

Soap

We all know the importance of washing our hands, but few of us know how much difference a good antibacterial soap can make. Bathrooms contain many germs on handles and faucets, so it's important to have a good soap in there to prevent COVID cases. The Soapopular Triclosan-Free Antibacterial Hand Soap is the perfect soap dispenser for the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cleaning Supplies

We all need to take care of ourselves with personal protective equipment. If we stop ourselves from becoming carriers of the virus, we can stop others from catching the virus from us.

But if you work in the medical field, you're dealing with many people who already have the virus. Whatever they touch could become infected, and someone can get the virus without ever coming into contact with an infected person.

For this reason, quality cleaning supplies are just as important as quality personal protective equipment when you work as an essential worker. Let's take a look at some of your options.

Spray Cleaner

The classic spray bottle is the go-to for most people looking to disinfect surfaces. And it's no wonder why a spray bottle provides a quick, easy way to dispense sanitizing fluids.

Our Aerochem Liquid Surface Cleaner Spray Bottle is a quick, no-smell option for you to get your cleaning on. You can order many at a time, so be sure to figure out exactly what your cleaning needs are before you order.

Make sure you work through a procedure with your employees about cleaning surfaces. If a surface is dirty, make sure you wipe it down with soap and water before disinfecting it. Like our Spray Nine Heavy-Duty Cleaner, that, or get a 2-in-1 cleaner, is guaranteed to clean surfaces and kill viruses.

Disinfectant liquids contain a lot of dangerous chemicals. Spray bottles have a lot of strong chemicals in them that need to be handled with care. Wear some splash-resistant goggles while you clean to ensure you don't get any chemicals in your eyes.

Refill Bottles

Just like with disinfectants, there are refill bottles available for spray cleaner. We offer several options on our website. However, unlike the disinfectant, we offer a gargantuan 20L refill tank for just over 400 dollars, ensuring you'll never run out of material to clean with.

It's been a long time since the world's come together in opposition to something as vast as the COVID-19 pandemic. We're beginning to come out of it now, but it's not over yet. Medical facilities should supply themselves with the best medical supplies possible to make sure we beat the pandemic.

Now that you understand your options for masks, face shields, respirators, sanitizer, goggles spray cleaner and refill bottles; you're well on your way to being back to the pandemic.
