The Ebola crisis in West Africa is about to get much worse.
With the outbreak set to peak in May, the number of deaths is expected to reach more than 10,000 by June.
This means the worst is yet to come.
With an eye on the future, we have decided to share 10 tips on how to avoid the Ebola panic.
Don’t panic and go ahead and purchase the latest gadgets and gadgets that are not for you.
We are all well aware that there is a shortage of the latest tech gadgets, but it is best to stay calm and buy as many of them as you can afford.
If you don’t want to spend money on a new computer, you can go for an older model or a more affordable model.
Buy a new smartphone and make sure you get a dedicated internet connection.
If your network isn’t up to snuff, you will be stuck with a slow internet connection even if your devices are on the same network.
Make sure you upgrade to a fast connection if you plan on visiting remote locations.
Make your home a virtual Ebola quarantine zone.
If possible, make your home your Ebola quarantine area.
If the virus is spreading in your home, make sure it is isolated from other people and is not allowed to leave.
This will prevent the spread of the virus from spreading from your house to other people’s homes.
Keep your personal data secure.
If anyone is able to access your personal information, it is highly recommended to encrypt it and send it to the authorities.
Stay away from any large crowds.
If a large crowd is forming, be sure to avoid crowds.
Make a plan to leave the area and seek shelter in a safe place.
Be cautious of local politics.
While it is a good idea to stay in touch with your contacts in the country you are visiting, if local politics gets out of control, it may be difficult to avoid getting infected.
If there are political parties in the area, there may be political rallies and protests.
Take your mobile with you everywhere.
There is no need to take your smartphone with you on the road or to a local business if you are travelling to remote locations, or if you have a smartphone that is not compatible with your mobile network.
If one of your contacts is sick, you may have to stay at home or get medical treatment.
Get vaccinated and get tested for the virus.
There are a number of vaccines that can help fight the Ebola virus.

Do not give up on your loved ones.
You never know when the worst may be.
Even the most dedicated people may lose hope.
So be prepared and be ready to fight the virus as best you can.
