Years ago, a British man began preparing for a catastrophe on the planet, until he found his country and the world at large in front of the outbreak of the new Corona virus.
For a period of 5 years, a man built a "shelter" underground to be a haven for him in the event of a disaster, as is the case now, and was keen to make it more like a "miniature house" full of entertainment.
In 2015, the British Colin Fors decided to start building an underground shelter in the back garden of his home, and he managed to make it look like a real home.
Fors put a mattress, a TV set and a set of drums in the shelter to exercise his favorite hobby, and made sure to provide him with a private generator, as the video clip he posted on YouTube showed.
The man also built a kitchen inside the shelter, equipped with a "microwave" and a sink, and filled it with canned food.
And because he built this place to protect him from any calamities or disasters, Forz made sure to put a gas mask inside the shelter.
Although the situation that the world is currently living in light of the spread of the Corona virus does not require all these complicated procedures, Forz confirmed that he is happy with the decision to build this shelter, and that he is using it now in "the time of Corona"

The administration of US President Donald Trump has appealed to several countries around the world to give or sell medical supplies, such as hand sanitizers and respirators, to combat the accelerating pandemic of the Corona virus.
In a list obtained by CNN, the State Department identified 25 outposts, and asked diplomats to ask their host countries for these supplies.
The number of deaths from the virus in the United States rose to 1041 as of Wednesday, with nearly 70,000 infected.
The network said that the United States asked countries that appealed to "everything", from manual disinfectants to respirators, to help fight the Corona virus.
It is not clear how many countries the United States has appealed to, but this list comes at a time when Trump praises his domestic response to fighting the Corona virus, and its activation of the Defense Production Act.
The list includes a range of equipment that American overburdened hospitals are seeking, including medical waste bags, N-95 masks, gloves, medical garments, surgical caps, shoe covers, containers, goggles, hand sanitizers, and protective vests.
The list also includes asthma inhalers and ventilators.
And Friday, Trump said he put the defense production law into effect, after his previous statement in which he confirmed that he would resort to this measure, but postponed it until he needed it.
The measure aims to allow the US government to accelerate the production of respirators, respirators and other equipment needed to combat the outbreak of the Corona virus, and Trump said he put the law into effect last Thursday.
When asked why the law was being enforced now, the president told reporters that it would be used to ensure the United States gets masks and other equipment necessary to combat the virus.
The law, which dates back to the Korean War in the 1950s, gives the president broad authority to "accelerate and expand resource supplies from the US industrial base to support Army, Energy, Space and Homeland Security programs," according to a report on the website of the Federal Emergency Management Agency website.
The British newspaper "The Guardian" reported that Trump spoke by phone with his South Korean counterpart, Moon Jae-in, on Tuesday, asking if his country can provide medical equipment.
While the official White House account did not refer to the request, according to the South Korean presidency (the Blue House), the call was made based on Trump's "urgent request".
The US president praised the South Korean testing program, which helped contain the outbreak there, the Guardian said.
The South Korean President told Trump that he would support South Korea's exports of vital supplies to the United States "if there is a domestic surplus"
Today, more than 1.5 billion people are forced to stay in their homes around the world, due to quarantine decisions imposed by the authorities, in order to curb the spread of the emerging Corona virus, and this new reality has created an unparalleled demand for delivery services.
With restaurants, cafes, and shopping malls not accessible, many resort to delivery services, amid questions about whether "delivery" is safer and does not in turn lead to the transmission of corona infection.
According to the "NBC" site, the delivery workers in the United States express great concerns about their infection with the virus, as they move towards a large number of homes and customers every day.
The site quoted delivery workers, without mentioning their names, for fear that they would lose their jobs if they talked about the problems in public, that many companies did not provide delivery workers with sterilizing hands, and they merely researched to wash hands with soap and water continuously.
But delivery workers do their work on the move, whether on motorbikes or in cars, and therefore, they need sterilization liquid.
Meanwhile, UPS, the delivery company, said it is providing respirators for people who place orders to health facilities or nursing homes.
But the concern is not limited to delivery workers alone, because customers in turn fear that the virus will pass them to them if they receive orders from abroad.
The ITER website reduces the risk of contracting the virus through food, explaining that restaurants are already bound by strict health procedures, even before the Corona virus is spread, and therefore, what is required of you is to know the restaurant you are requesting, meaning that you are aware of its quality and its respect for health standards.
Experts recommend avoiding contact as much as possible when receiving delivery orders. In order to observe these guidelines, electronic payment is recommended, and payment in cash should be avoided, unless necessary.
Recently, delivery companies announced a delivery service without interaction between the operator and the customer, "Contact free", while some buildings obliged those who request meals from abroad to receive them at the entrance to the building, so that the next worker from outside does not reach the door of the apartment.
After receiving, the experts recommend disposing the bags in which the food came, then washing and sterilizing the hands, due to the possibility of the virus passing through the surfaces that the delivery driver touched while bringing food.
Recently, delivery workers have received widespread acclaim, amid calls for their generous "tip" due to the effort they are making in providing people with what to buy, despite health conditions and a high risk of contracting the disease.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov announced that various options are being considered on the issue of conducting nationwide voting on amendments to the constitution, taking into account the epidemiological situation.
Peskov told reporters in his talk about options for a popular vote on the amendments to the constitution on April 22 and the possibility of postponing it: "Given the evolution of the epidemiological situation, which is changing, and the situation is unstable, and this is what was mentioned yesterday, in particular, Sergey Sobyanin [Mayor of Moscow], is being considered There are different options, but no decisions have been taken, so be patient. With the decisions taken, we will inform you of that. "

Hypochlorites are widely used in healthcare facilities in a variety of settings. 328 Inorganic chlorine solution is used for disinfecting tonometer heads 188 and for spot-disinfection of countertops and floors. A 1:10–1:100 dilution of 5.25%–6.15% sodium hypochlorite (i.e., household bleach) 22, 228, 553, 554 or an EPA-registered tuberculocidal disinfectant 17has been recommended for decontaminating blood spills. For small spills of blood (i.e., drops of blood) on noncritical surfaces, the area can be disinfected with a 1:100 dilution of 5.25%-6.15% sodium hypochlorite or an EPA-registered tuberculocidal disinfectant. Because hypochlorites and other germicides are substantially inactivated in the presence of blood 63, 548, 555, 556, large spills of blood require that the surface be cleaned before an EPA-registered disinfectant or a 1:10 (final concentration) solution of household bleach is applied 557. If a sharps injury is possible, the surface initially should be decontaminated 69, 318, then cleaned and disinfected (1:10 final concentration) 63. Extreme care always should be taken to prevent percutaneous injury. At least 500 ppm available chlorine for 10 minutes is recommended for decontaminating CPR training manikins 558. Full-strength bleach has been recommended for self-disinfection of needles and syringes used for illicit-drug injection when needle-exchange programs are not available. The difference in the recommended concentrations of bleach reflects the difficulty of cleaning the interior of needles and syringes and the use of needles and syringes for parenteral injection 559. Clinicians should not alter their use of chlorine on environmental surfaces on the basis of testing methodologies that do not simulate actual disinfection practices 560, 561. Other uses in healthcare include as an irrigating agent in endodontic treatment 562 and as a disinfectant for manikins, laundry, dental appliances, hydrotherapy tanks 23, 41, regulated medical waste before disposal 328, and the water distribution system in hemodialysis centers and hemodialysis machines 563.
