It seems you can’t read or watch the news these days without a mention of how strained our country’s healthcare system could become as a result of Covid-19. If you or someone you know works in the medical industry, you likely already recognize this reality starting to form, but rather than panic, now can be a good time to restock on first aid supplies-and I’m not just talking about band-aids.
Being prepared for a variety of first aid situations-when going to the pharmacy becomes much harder (or close to impossible) due to economic effects and the spread of Coranavirus – is absolutely crucial, and while you could adequately search for all of the supplies you need separately, I’d like to offer a different solution.
Consider Outbreak Provisions, a new vendor in the emergency preparedness first aid and survivalist space, for comprehensive first aid kits that include enough supplies to treat yourself and your family with ease!
For those who are interested, the 25 Person First Aid Kit shown above includes the following:
30 — Adhesive bandages (1” x 3”)
30 — Adhesive bandages (3” x ¾”)
20 — Adhesive bandages (1 ¾” x 3/8”)
3 — Knuckle bandages
3 — Fingertip bandages
3 — Butterfly closures
1 — Roll of tape
2 — Triangular bandages w/safety pins
1 — Trauma pad (5” x 9”)
1 — Eye pad
4 — Gauze pads (4” x 4”)
4 – Gauze pads (3” x 3”)
4 – Gauze pads (2” x 2”)

Not a bad offering of products designed to help you minimize your exposure to Covid-19, including alcohol pads, antiseptic pads, gloves, a cold pack*. It also has many things you may need to treat minor wounds or blunt injuries. While the kit says its for 25 people, in reality this is a great kit to buy for even a small family, as it is both affordable and comprehensive.
Additionally, a first aid kit is only as helpful as the person using it (and their knowledge of first aid). While we have already shared helpful first aid refreshers in this article: https://dailycaller.com/2020/03/22/need-a-first-aid-refresher-in-troubled-times-here-are-some-free-resources-to-keep-you-prepared, we have taken the liberty of summarizing some of the helpful first aid resources covered in the article (found below):
