/ 15 January 2021

The Philippines remains among the top countries in the world with confirmed cases of COVID-19. Despite local governments implementing social distancing measures and curfew restrictions, the reopening of our economy has put Filipinos at increased risk. As businesses resume operations, young professionals in the new normal are monitoring their health more closely than ever. 

Since COVID-19 was first discovered, taking care of our health has gone beyond the anatomical. These days, people are particularly mindful about sanitizing their personal belongings. No matter how many feet apart we are from others, the new normal hasn’t rendered items like credit cards, money, and mobile phones useless. If anything, they remain critical to our day to day lives, especially when we transact within business premises. They are likewise susceptible to coming into close contact with unknown bacteria. Hence, sanitation solutions for our must-haves are essential.
