Binge These Shows on Hulu, Netflix, & Disney+ During Self-Quarantine

With the threat of the Coronavirus spreading across the world, you may have opted for the safest--and wisest--choice of self-quarantining. Unfortunately, you may realize just how bored you're going to be if the virus doesn't end any time soon. Thankfully, you have a subscription to Hulu, Netflix, and Disney +. With so much entertainment at your fingertips, what shows are actually worth watching? Here's a list of some of the best binge-worthy shows to catch while you're self-quarantined. 

1. Altered Carbon

How about a world where death doesn't always mean the end? Netflix's Altered Carbon offers a sci-fi world rich in lore and action. Season two was just released, so you have plenty of episodes to binge through. Follow the story of Takeshi Kovacs, an elite warrior who is deeply in love with the leader of a resistance movement. 

With their consciousness, memories, and perhaps even their souls, backed up on a device called a stack, they're able to be placed inside of whatever body is at hand. As you might imagine, being deathless comes with its share of problems. 

This show is great for those who love sci-fi, action, cyberpunk, and some incredible lore. 

2. Space Jam

Also on Netflix is Space Jam, the old Michael Jordan and Looney Tunes mix-up movie. Millennials will likely remember watching this movie often when they were a kid and sick. Why not watch it now as a sick adult? Looney Tunes still has the jokes, as you'll quickly remember.

Nothing can make you feel better than good old-fashioned nostalgia. 

3. What We Do in the Shadows

Since you're going to be hiding in your house with the threat of Coronavirus looming outside, you may start to feel like you're a vampire. What better show to binge than a comedy featuring vampires?...

How To Disinfect And Keep Your Home Clean During The Coronavirus Outbreak

Understanding How The Virus Spreads

When illness threatens the general population, there is a lot of fear. However, by understanding how the virus works and spreads, you can prepare in an effective way and stem the panic. Coronavirus acts similarly to SARS and MERS.

It is spread through respiratory droplets. This can be transferred via spit and sweat. It has been suggested that the virus can remain on surfaces that the infected touch. It is, as of yet, unknown how long the virus can live on a surface. The general estimate is from a few hours to a few days.

The best way to avoid catching Coronavirus is to avoid people. Whether through coughing, sneezing, touching sweat, kissing, or touching an infected surface, you can receive the virus.

In order to stay protected at home, you’ll want to disinfect the area and kill the virus. Here’s how.

1. Clean First

Cleaning is different from disinfecting. When you want to clean, you’re basically getting rid of dust, dirt, and dead skin cells. Anything that rests on a surface is essentially something that can be cleaned. Disinfecting means you are using cleaners to kill germs and bacteria.

Before you can disinfect, you should clean the house.

Take a wet cloth and dust the area that you intend to disinfect. A wet cloth will collect dust better than a dry cloth. It will also help prevent the dust from simply flying off the surface to settle elsewhere.

You’ll also want to sweep hard floors like wood, tile, and vinyl.

Finally, carpets should be thoroughly vacuumed. You may even consider deep-cleaning them with a carpet cleaner.

2. Disinfecting Hard Surfaces

When it comes to disinfecting, the first step is to wear disposable gloves. You’re going to be working...
