The typical flu season can last anywhere from four to five months. And now the highly contagious coronavirus is not only prompting governments to take drastic measures to ensure that the spread is contained, but also making people worried that they might be the next victim.

With the world grinding to a halt becuase of the virus, it’s easy to get caught up in the hysterics surrounding the pandemic. With grocery stores running out of supplies and people hoarding hand sanitizers everywhere during these tough times, it might be a wise move to be prepared and stock your own cold and flu survival kit.

Pharmacist and author Sherry Torkos recommends this checklist for a well-stocked cold and flu kit. Hint: store the smaller items in one clear plastic container. That way, you won’t have to search through cabinets and cupboards for relief when you’d rather just crawl into bed.
