Advice on reducing other risks during Coronavirus?post by eapache (evan-huus) · 2020-03-24T23:30:37.172Z · score: 12 (6 votes) · LW · GW · 1 comment
This is a question post.
I've seen tons of great, useful advice on reducing coronavirus risk, and prepping for the fallout. What I haven't seen is advice on reducing other day-to-day risks which would be unexpectedly dangerous (due to strained infrastructure, reduced medical capacity, etc) during the current period. Some obvious suggestions might include:
- If you have to drive, do so more slowly and defensively than usual. Try to walk places (while not looking at your phone) if you can.
- Don't operate power tools.
- Don't do anything involving significant heights.
- Be extra careful cooking (burns) and cleaning (chemicals), and handling things like glasses or knives that might cut you if they slip or break.
What other suggestions do people have?
