It’s been 100 years since the Spanish Flu caused a global pandemic. While you can rest easy right now knowing a global pandemic is not currently a threat, it is just a matter of time before the next one arrives. And when the next one does arrive, “scientists say an outbreak of a flu-like illness could sweep across the planet in 36 hours and kill tens of millions due to our constantly-traveling population.”
According to the Daily Mail, “The report, named A World At Risk, said current efforts to prepare for outbreaks in the wake of crises such as Ebola are ‘grossly insufficient’”. It was headed by Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland, the former Norwegian prime minister and director-general of the WHO (World Health Organization). He said in the report: “The threat of a pandemic spreading around the globe is a real one. ‘A quick-moving pathogen has the potential to kill tens of millions of people, disrupt economies and destabilize national security.’”
No country is fully prepared for the mayhem a pandemic flu can cause
Out of the entire world, a mere 13 countries had resources and health care systems to put up a fight against a global pandemic. Among the countries ranked in the top tier were Britain, the United States, Australia, Canada, France, and Holland.
Scientists say that the size of a city and its structure can impact an influenza epidemic, meaning where you live could affect the spread of the virus. Regardless of whether flu cases rise to a wintertime peak or plateau from fall to spring, new research suggests that the size of a city itself is what influences the contours of its flu season according to Science News. Larger cities with higher levels of crowding were associated with a steady accumulation of influenza cases throughout the flu season. Smaller cities with less crowding tended to have a flu season with a more intense surge in winter, researchers report in the October 5 publication.
When a highly lethal flu pandemic comes, it will affect everyone alive today. In a related article, “Pandemic flu is apolitical and does not discriminate between rich and poor. Geographical boundaries are meaningless, and it can circle the globe within hours.” Dr. Gupta goes on to explain that when most people hear “flu”, they think of seasonal flu, but pandemic flu is “a different animal, and you should understand the difference.”
Preparations start at home
So just how do we prepare for a possible pandemic? A big concern with pandemics is that supplies would be quickly exhausted leaving many unprepared to handle the ordeal. This will only fuel a more chaotic situation. These concerns are not new to most governments and steps have been taken to ensure communities are prepared and are able to contain most epidemics.
Which such a large-scale emergency, it is difficult to know where to start and the best answer this author can give you is to start at home. We can’t control if or when governments decide to prepare, but we can control when and what we, as individuals need to protect our families.
This a suggested list of supplies to help you combat a pandemic is based on Tess Pennington’s best-selling book, The Prepper’s Blueprint. The preparedness manual offers real-world advice for preppers of all levels and stages to help gear up for a pandemic.
The following is a list of pandemic supplies for your home:
- One month supply of emergency foods that require no refrigeration.
- Store 1 gallon of water per person per day, in clean plastic containers. Avoid using containers that will decompose or break, such as milk cartons or glass bottles.
- Plastic sheeting
- 2-3 small wastebaskets or a bucket lined with a plastic garbage bag (to dispose of clothing, soiled supplies, etc.)
- Gallon-sized zip-loc bags
- A portable toilet with disposable liners
- Supply of nonprescription drugs and pain relievers
- Cold medicines and decongestants
- Stomach remedies
- Anti-diarrheal medication
- Essential oils
- Vitamins that have immune-boosting enhancers
- Fluids with electrolytes
- Bleach or disinfectant
- Garbage bags to collect soiled clothing and bedding before they are washed.
- A thermometer
- Protective eye gear and/or face shield
- Disposable nitrile gloves (2-3 boxes)
- Tyvek protective suit and shoe covers
- Disposable cleaning gloves (in quantity)
- Hand wipes
- Alcohol-based hand sanitizers or homemade hand sanitizer supplies
- Protective clothing
- Disposable aprons or smocks (at least 2 cases)
- Duct tape for sealing off doorways and vents
- N95 masks or N100 respirator masks for use when the sick person is coughing or sneezing (can be purchased at hardware stores and some drugstores)
In the event of a pandemic, because of anticipated shortages of supplies, health care professionals and widespread implementation of social distancing techniques, it is expected that the large majority of individuals infected with the pandemic illness will be cared for in the home by family members, friends, and other members of the community – not by trained health care professionals. Bear in mind that persons who are more prone to contracting illnesses include people 65 years and older, children younger than five years old, pregnant women, and people of any age with certain chronic medical conditions.
In addition to having some necessary supplies on hand, you’ll also want to do the following:
- Store a one month supply of water and food. During a pandemic, if you cannot get to a store, or if stores are out of supplies, it will be important for you to have extra supplies on hand.
- Periodically check your regular prescription drugs to ensure a continuous supply in your home.
Have any nonprescription drugs and other health supplies on hand, including pain relievers, stomach remedies, cough, and cold medicines, fluids with electrolytes, and vitamins.
- Talk with family members and loved ones about how they would be cared for if they got sick, or what will be needed to care for them in your home.
- Prepare a sick room for the home to limit family member’s exposure to the virus.
Brainstorming in advance is a great way to determine where you’d quarantine a family member or create your sick room. Individual preparation is critical if you would like to beat any pandemic and that all starts with brainstorming and coming up with the best ideas to keep yourself and loved ones healthy.

Have you heard of coronavirus?
What ? Electric goes out ??
Whats electric got to do with virus ?
And does China have a plan to support all in AMERICA , THROUGH THIS ? I MEAN ITS THEIR FAULT ! AND SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE ! IT WAS RELIESED FROM CHINA ON PURPOSE !
NOW ! WHAT ARE THEY DOING ABOUT IT !
FREE VACACINNES !!
If we cant work because of companies closing or limiting their hours. we won’t have money for electricity, rent and our Bill’s to survive.
I Think I found the source of COVID -19 MUST BE 21 TO ENTER
“In the film Tampopo, an epicurean gangster character describes an unusual meal on his deathbed. He explains that Japanese wild boar survive mainly on yam in the winter. After shooting a boar, a hunter should cut open its guts straight away and grill them over an open fire.”

Tech Tyrants NWO globalist communist want you dumb, Unarmed, distracted, entertained.
ChinaVirus is distraction. ChiComs are in PURGE mode.
Purge internal enemies. Mass murder.
Purge most foriegners within borders. ChinaVirus is reason foriegn people are leaving. Once westerners leave. It will be much easier for ChiComs to murder on larger scale.
5g is a weapon
China was experiencing mass unrest spreading out from Hong Kong and Islamic terrorism spreading out from Xinjiang. If they let it continue, then the CCP would be out of power and China would have regime change. They needed to act fast and to go big: basically they need to cook off many millions of the poor, the dumb, the dissenters, and unneeded industrial economy workers.
China’s future is in being a high-value, smart economy and they can’t handle the unrest from the downsizing of the industrial economy. They have seen the mess this has made of the West and they don’t want this to happen to them. They also do not have the wealth to take care of all the health needs – cancers, respiratory diseases, AIDS, etc. – that these populations will have. China’s public health system is already on its knees and it cannot take care of all the victims of the industrial pollution of the past three decades.
5G is a weapon for sure. At the high range of its frequency, water molecules begin to vibrate. Even current Wi-fi levels are unsafe. They can not be avoided unless someone is fortunate enough to be in a rural area on large property. We are bombarded by deadly wi-fi and elctromagnetic feilds.
It is my theory that the military has relied on 5-G which is why the U,S. is so concerned, because they have proven that they don’t give a damn about the well being of citizens. The government only cares about themselves and the corporations. Many Republicans pretend that they are pro-life, but they have proven that they are nothing more than pro-slavery based on the way that they have treated the population. The Democrats are also guilty, but allow someone the choice of not subjecting someone else to life long suffering and abuse, kind of like, yeah, you can have children, but they will be enslaved and abused, but we will pretend that we are not doing it, just like the Republicans.
Compare the known worldwide fatalities from Coronavirus with US only known fatalities from the flu for just this year (2020).
That should give you some perspective on things, and let you know what you need to be the most prepared to deal with.
You guys are funny. 5G has been in US for several years now used by universities, government agencies and some big companies. It’s $26,000 a year to be on the backbone and the company I work for has it. Has for 3 years now because of the big data loads. Nothing more than faster internet speeds.
The 5G most people think of is for use by general public as in phones, tablets, etc.
same thing happened when most people used a dial up modem when big business was getting Megabyte downloads available.
There is no frequency vibration, or anything else. It’s just fiber optics hooked into a backbone using next gen fiber optics.
In normal fiber optics data travels thru a glass core fiber. In next gen fiber optics there is no glass core. It’s hollow and data can transmit thru this hollow core faster. A lot faster.
Sure, I believe that. It’s used by all the main traders along with algorithms to front run and spoof trade the markets. With the speed and location close to the trading hubs, they can get in and out faster than anyone else. They may make a few pennies per share on these trades but that adds up. The speed also lets any news hit their computers milliseconds before anyone else. Why do you think Goldman and JPMorgan never show any days with trading losses?
I recall reading about this at least 5 years ago, but they didn’t label it as 5G at the time.
Covid-19 straight from hell, get saved and follow Jesus, youll make it out alive!
True I believe that is true, it’s scary but we are not here to stay,I just hope my love ones come to heaven with me.thats my prayers amen
