The covid virus -19 appeared in China in December 2019, is in March present in the 4 corners of the world. In order to fight this epidemic, some countries have decided to take measures, in particular the total containment of populations.
In France, in order to prevent the spread of the virus, various measures have been put in place, including containment. Different sectors are at the forefront of the epidemic. This applies to sectors such as mass distribution, the medical profession and social workers. However, even if we are not on the front line, we can also play a role.
Here are some ways to help:

Donate blood or platelets
Hospitals are starting to run out of blood bags and platelets. And yet the number of people who need to receive blood is not decreasing and increasing. Know that despite confinement you can always and even more now donate blood/platelets.
It doesn’t really matter what your blood type is. In France, different places are open for the donation of blood. If you want to have different information about blood donation, you can go to the website https://dondesang.efs.sante.f
The covid-19 epidemic affects many people. Some are affected in terms of health, but others are affected in other ways. Especially economically. Among them are victims of violence, people without a home, migrants and so on. With containment, these people are even more vulnerable because they have nowhere to go.
Making a donation of money or equipment would allow these people to enjoy an overnight stay away from their homes, meals or even to be safe.
Assist older people
With all the excitement in the stores, seniors who normally have trouble shopping have even more difficulties. Yet we can also help them.
So if you have muscle and energy to sell, go to the Civic Reserve website, so you can participate while being mentored by an organization.
The medical profession is currently lacking in mask and hydro-alcoholic gel. If you have masks because of your profession (aesthetic centers not example), you can always give them to hospitals, pharmacies or simply to people who needs to have protection to work.
Make a housing loan
In this epidemic, some regions are more affected than others. Doctors and caregivers are even forced to travel to areas where they are not necessarily close to their homes. But they have to be housed.
If you have a second property and you don’t use it, know it’s time to make a small gesture.
Caregiver or Apprentice: Give a hand
Whether you are an apprentice caregiver or caregiver you can because of the epidemic, participate and support the medical staff. You just need to participate by checking the Health Reserve.
For those who simply cannot or doesn’t to participate directly in this epidemic, we simply ask you stay home. That’s another way of dealing with the spread of the virus. And then there’s a lot to do at home. So you might as well take advantage of your free time to do it.
