How to prepare for and survive a pandemic

Prepare now for a pandemic!
"No one is immune to fear:" Such was a line in advertising for the
movie
Contagion, starring Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude
Law and Kate Winslet. Hollywood may have dramatized a virus
that doesn't really exist, but they have also illustrated a very
real threat to mankind.
Pandemics like coronavirus kill quickly! A
pandemic, such as
bird flu, can happen in a matter of hours and
the incubation can be as much as eight weeks. You can get a
virus simply from being at the wrong end of a sneeze or by being
on a transcontinental flight. Yet surviving a pandemic is possible!

Fear is not an option, so get ready! The only thing you have to
fear is not prepping for a pandemic. Below is how to prepare for a
generic pandemic. It's the ultimate pandemic preparedness guide
that may someday save your life, but remember that how to
prepare for an Ebola or SARs pandemic is not the same as how to
prepare for
Coronavirus.

Worried about Coronavirus?

How to Prepare for Pandemic
A pandemic is a virus or disease that affects a large number
people in multiple countries, whereas an endemic is a disease or
condition that effects particular people or in a certain area. You
never know when a pandemic could strike. Are you prepared?

Get your pandemic kit together, or buy a ready made pandemic
kit if still available. With so many commercially available kits
already put together for you, you'll know exactly what to do in
case of a pandemic emergency: head to your kit! Stock a kit in
your car during flu season and you'll be on top of things for
pandemic preparedness.

Enhanced Pandemic Supply List:
During a pandemic the anti-viral face masks, pictured right,
would be almost impossible to get. Do you know what else to
stock?

Pandemic supply #1: Pandemic Mask.
One of the most basic things you can do to prepare for a
pandemic is to stock up on an
antiviral mask. While certainly
helpful, an antiviral mask does not cover the entire mouth and
are really much more for patients than they are for the wearer.
They were inexpensive and effective at around $4, but during a
pandemic they will be hard to come by. A reason to wear a
pandemic mask in crisis is to have a constant reminder not to
touch your nose and mouth to avoid contagion!

  • Antiviral masks. Right are Curad anti-viral facemasks, which
    were available for as little as $4.25 for a box of ten. The
    first line of defense before a pandemic starts antiviral masks
    helps reduce the risk of spreading germs, as with the swine
    flu, common cold or a bird flu pandemic, but ultimately you'll
    need a respirator that covers the entire mouth.

  • N95/N100 mask. The best pandemic mask to consider is an
    N-95 or N-100 particulate respirator with a valve. These are
    ideal for dealing with the aftermath of smoke to help with
    air quality. It provides relief from non-harmful sanding,
    grinding and insulating particles. The respirator has an
    adjustable nose clip and generally promotes easier
    breathing. Dr. Bones, Joe Alton, M.D. suggests N95 masks
    for the caregivers on his doomandbloom.net web site.

  • Gas Masks. Though gas masks are not specifically for
    Coronavirus protection, many preppers are taking
    precautions to get them now, while supplies are still
    available. They sold out during the Ebola crisis. Remember
    that you'll require special filters and using a gas mask just
    once during a pandemic could render your very expensive
    equipment useless. Nonetheless it could save your life.
    Read the eight considerations before buying a gas mask.

Pandemic supply #2: Goggles.
One of the most overlooked items in a pandemic is the goggles!
You can't see a pandemic coming and you probably won't be able
to feel the tiny droplets of contagion. You'll want to wear
goggles during a pandemic, for example, if you're the designated
person caring for the sick in your home. If someone in the family
has been exposed to the virus, you'll use these goggles.

The purpose of goggles is to help you prevent droplets from
entering the cavities of the eye. How do droplets get into your
eye? Mostly from fluid in your nose and mouth, but contagion can
enter your eyes in any number of ways including:
  • Coughs (droplets can stay in the air for 45 minutes)
  • Sneezes
  • Blood splashes
  • Rubbing your eyes

Pandemic supply #3: Duct tape and drop cloths.
Duct tape is a favorite of supply items for the prepper as it has
both a value in outdoor survival for improvising and it can help
around the homestead.
Duct tape is a survival tool. During a
pandemic, preppers must consider quarantine as part of their
pandemic response plan. Use duct tape to seal off windows and
doorways. Here's
how to set up a quarantined safe room.

Pandemic supply #4: Gloves.
There are several gloves to consider for pandemic prepping.
Medical gloves have two basic categories, sterile and non-sterile.
Sterile gloves are for examining patients and performing
surgeries. For pandemic prepping non-sterile nitrile gloves
suffice. These are

  • Nitrile exam gloves. Nitrile is chemical and puncture-
    resistant providing a higher level of protection against
    liquids, gases and sharp objects. Non-allergenic and non-
    irritating Nitrile exam gloves are very inexpensive. You can
    can 1,000 Nitrile gloves for around $45. Nitrile exam gloves
    are latex free and standard practice in the medical industry:
    even for CPR trained individuals who are instructed to put on
    the gloves before helping an individual who has fallen.

  • Tip: Keep gloves ready inside zip lock bag to keep the
    gloves clean of bacteria and dirt. The care in wearing
    gloves is that you realize anything you touch with the
    gloves will then be contaminated as your hands would
    have been.

  • Chemical resistant gloves. For pandemics such as Ebola,
    you will need a second layer of gloves that have a case-
    hardened finish enhances both chemical and abrasion
    resistance, such as the green chemical resistant gloves
    pictured immediate right. They are loose fitting. At this
    time, it does not appear that Coronavirus requires a second
    set of gloves for citizens, however healthcare professionals
    may want a second set of gloves particularly if they are
    dealing with equipment which may tear gloves and leave you
    exposed.

  • Food service gloves. You'll want powder-free food handling
    plastic gloves to keep your meal prep hygienic during a
    pandemic. With Coronavirus the incubation period is rather
    long and the food preparer in your family or group may be
    unaware of his or her illness. Plan for such contingencies
    with food service gloves. Food service gloves provide
    bacterial isolation. Pictured lower right, food service gloves
    are clear plastic, loose fitting and very inexpensive. Get as
    many as 500 food service gloves for around $9.

Wear pandemic gloves during times of crisis to:
  • Shop Costco or the grocery stores.
  • Pump gas or use an ATM machine to limit your exposure
  • Take out the trash.
  • Caring for sick individuals, including doing their laundry.

Learn also how to properly remove gloves, pulling them inside
out and rolling them so the possible bio-hazard virus never
touches your skin:
After Armageddon may not be available on YouTube. This a theoretical
account of a worst case scenario and depicts how a pandemic can cause a
global disaster. It will give you a clear understanding of how events could
unfold and affect water supplies, cause starvation madness, and how people
might band together to survive.

Make your Own Pandemic Preparedness Kit
Review our pandemic preparedness checklist and get ready to
survive a pandemic. Be happy that you're a prepper and that you're
taking the right steps for your loved ones.

Get your pandemic kit together before it's too late. Preppers may
like this list of supplies for pandemic (it's the contents of the kit
pictured above):

One large and Two medium Survivair Opti-Fit Air-Purifying Full-Face
Respirators with 5-point staps, wide-field polycarbonate optics and
speaking diaphrams.

  • Six Unisorb multi-contaminant filters for chemical, biological
    and radiological hazards keep your family isolated.
  • 3-M disposable respirators
  • Kleenguard A60 Bloodborne Pathogen and Chemical Splash
    Protection Suits
  • 100 medical-grade gloves.
  • 250 square feet of 3-mil plastic sheeting and duct tape.
  • Biohazard bags for disposal.
  • Hand sanitizers, emergency lighting and 'Caution' barricade
    tape.

The simple
pandemic flu kit from the U.S. Department of Defense,  
includes
  • 4 Surgical Masks
  • 2 NIOSH Approved N95 Masks
  • 4oz Bottle of Hand Sanitizer & Info Card

Germs are everywhere. Ever think about all the germs you touch
you transfer to your cellphone? On average, a cell phone is 18x
dirtier than a public restroom! Germs and bacteria can grow and
thrive on our phones because they are always warm and they are
stored in dark places. The solution is PhoneSoap Charger, which
sanitizes and disinfects your phone while it charges.

Historically, viruses have killed massive populations within days
and medical professionals agree our society is long overdue for
such a pandemic. Indeed a threat is imminent, and yet mankind
has had some success in controlling. Compare the Bubonic plague
and Spanish Flu to the more recent outbreaks of Swine Flu and
Avian Flu and you can take comfort in knowing awareness is half of
being prepared:

  • Avian Flu. While China has had Avian Flu, the United States
    has virtually escaped threat. An exception is Texas in 2004,
    which had a strain of avian flu. All other strains in the United
    States, "... have been extinguished and have not been known
    to infect humans," according to Wikipedia on Avian Flu.

  • Bubonic plague. Many think the Bubonic Plague (also called
    the Black Plague) is long gone, but beware the Bubonic Plague
    is still lurking! Back in the 1600's The plague wiped nearly 2/3
    of the population of Europe.



  • Spanish Flu. The Spanish Influenza killed 20 percent of the
    world's population in 1918 50 million.

  • Ebola Virus.  Back in the 1976 the first eBola Virus appeared
    and caused quite a stir. It's back with live cases of eBola
    hitting close to home in an Atlanta hospital. Deadly
    pandemics, like Ebola are only a plane ride away, and one
    infected person can trigger a domino effect. If you believe the
    media, however, Ebola can't be spread through the air, only
    through blood and bodily fluids. Why take chances? Take extra
    precautions about Ebola and treat the disease as though it's
    spread through the air.

  • Swine Flu. In 2009 Swine Flu hit the United States rather
    severely.

Other bacteria and viruses are lurking too, including
Anthrax
(bioterrorism),  
Powasson, Superbug, the Measles and West Nile
Virus. Pandemics are usually associated with panic, and panic can
be averted with knowledge.

Happy endings...
You'll feel better once you have the basics in place. Start with your
lungs! Look for a good N95 certification respirator, instead of being
tempted by the cheap kind. You'll find you can use if for dust too
and be more comfortable.

Do you know what to do in case of a pandemic?
You can't control pandemic around you, but you can take extra
measures to protect yourself. There are four basic ways you can do
just that.

  • Take extra precautions. Want to avoid a pandemic in your
    family or group? Take heed of the 50 simple things you can do
    to prevent Ebola. Mind you, this is an extreme preparedness
    list, but why not go to extremes? It's your life we're talking
    about and you're a prepper.

  • Increase your water supply. Viruses are so small that they
    easily can get through a water filtration system, which is why
    municipalities chlorinate water. Chlorine kills viruses and
    bacteria. Raw water sources may contain both bird and human
    flu virus. The chlorine stockpile for water treatment plants is
    about a week. Without chlorine, infectious pathogens could be
    supplied to the public.


  • Stock up on Adequate Pandemic Supplies. In addition to
    getting a simple pandemic kit or putting one together yourself,
    learn how to prevent airborne contagions from getting into
    your home, and get the necessary supplies while they are still
    available, because by the time the pandemic is in the air, time
    is gone to get the supplies you'll need to survive. Following
    are some ideas for your pandemic emergency plan. It's a
    pandemic preparedness checklist of sorts...

Above is a short lesson on how to remove contaminated gloves.

Pandemic supply #5: Tyvec, Chemical or hazmat suit
Personal protective gear includes a Tyvec suit, also known as a
chemical suit or a hazmat suit (short for Hazardous Materials).
Tyvec is an impermeable material. There are many types of suits,
which are body coveralls. As part of the overall protections for
your family ensure your coveralls protect against substances,
including chemicals, biological agents, or radioactive materials.

Buy a hazmat suit for every member of the family and then some
for unexpected guests or for new exposures. The typical Tyvec
suit you'll find at a Home Depot provides inherent barrier
protection against dry particulate hazards, for such things as
asbestos and lead abatement. The Bloodborne pathogen and
chemical protective coverall pictured right is the best kind to
purchase for a pandemic.

See all the chemical suits available to make the best decision for
the pandemic at hand. For example, Ebola requires bloodborne
pathogen coverage, while other pandemics may not.

  • Tip for your chemical suit. Be sure you have a supply of
    adult diapers to put underneath your chemical suit as you
    might not be able to get to a bathroom during an emergency.
    Once you take off the protective suit it's no longer effective
    at protecting your. Learn the proper procedures for donning
    (putting on) and doxxing (taking off) your gear.


Pandemic supply #6: Antiseptics and disinfectants.
Stock a variety of antiseptics and disinfectants for cleaning door
knobs and handles, bathrooms, kitchens and other shared
surfaces.

Want to know the difference between an
antiseptic and a
disinfectant? Antiseptics apply to the skin (while a disinfectant
applies to surfaces and not skin). The best antiseptic is good old
fashioned soap and water, but for when this might not be
available, you'll need antiseptic wipes.

Antiseptics

  • Antiseptic wipes and hand sanitizers will help you control
    exposure and help minimize the risks of pandemics on your
    hands; however, unless you're wearing gloves it may be too
    late if the virus has made contact with your skin. Other
    points of entry to the body include entry through nasal
    passages, eye and ear cavities, as well as contact through
    the genitals.

  • A good example of an antiseptic is Povidone Iodine Solution.
    This First Aid Antiseptic will help prevent risk of infection
    from minor cuts, scrapes, and burns. Another popular first aid
    antiseptic is Neosporin foaming liquid or Bactine, the original
    first aid liquid infection protection.

Disinfectants

  • A disinfectant is a chemical liquid that destroys bacteria,
    viruses and fungi on surfaces. A sanitizer performs the same
    function; however, it is generally safe for food handling. Both
    kill bacteria and both apply to surfaces. Stock them all:
    soaps, sanitizers and disinfectants.


  • Food Surface Sanitizing Solution. Steramine Quaternary
    Sanitizing tablets (for your food handling surfaces) are
    disinfectants too. Steramine sanitizer tablets, pictured right,
    is a sanitizer ideal for food processing equipment, sinks,
    countertops, cabinets, refrigerators, stovetops, cutting
    boards, and all other non-porous articles and surfaces.  The
    bottle includes 150 Steramine Sanitizing Tablets, and you'll
    need just one tablet to make a gallon of disinfectant. Odor-
    free, and non-corrosive, Steramine does not irritate the skin.

Pandemic supply #7: Liquid soaps.
Washing hands is among the best ways to fight contagion.
There's a
proper handwashing technique you can learn from the
Centers for Disease Control (Wet, Lather, Scrub, Rinse, Dry). This
five-point method for effective handwashing is especially
important during a pandemic and they require soap!

Stock up on liquid soaps. You can choose antibacterial soaps, but
viruses are becoming more clever and nothing beats lathering up
with a good liquid soap. Coronavirus lives on wet surfaces, which
is why you should not rely on bar soaps which stay moist.

Pandemic supply #8: Antiviral facial tissues.
For a respiratory pandemic facial tissue are a "must have" on your
supply list. The best kind of tissues to buy are anti-viral tissues.

A prepper favorite is
Kleenix Anti-viral tissues pictured right and
available in bulk. Kleenex anti-viral tissues are the only tissue
that can kill 99.9% of cold and flu viruses, helping you to take
care of you and your family during cold and flu season. Anti-viral
tissues are made with 3 soft Plies, including a moisture-activated
middle layer that kills 99.9% of cold and flu viruses in the tissue,
making them perfect for your home, office, or school. Buy Kleenex
facial tissues in bulk & Save! Keep Kleenex Soothing lotion
tissues on hand to care for you, your family and your guests
during cold & Flu, allergy, or back to school seasons. And for a
gentle clean with no harsh chemicals, check out Kleenex Wet
Wipes in Gentle, germ Removal, & sensitive.

Pandemic supply #9. Thermometers.
Fever is a symptom of many kinds of pandemics. There are many
kinds of thermometers you should stock for different
circumstances:

  • Analog thermometer. An analog thermometer can help you
    during an ElectroMagnetic pulse (EMP), or simply when your
    batteries drain from digital thermometer.

  • Disposable thermometer. Have disposable thermometers
    handy in your bugout bag (not in a car as heat can ruin
    them).

  • No-touch thermometer. No-touch thermometers were used
    extensively in Ebola-stricken countries.

Pandemic supply #10: Medicine.
Ensure your prepper's medicine cabinet is well stocked! When a
pandemic hits, these supplies will be among the first to go.You'll
need to ensure you have:


Cold remedies.
  • Zicam cold remedy shortens colds.

More considerations:

Pandemic supply #11: Electrolytes.
Another important and overlooked supply item for a pandemic,
such as Coronavirus, are electrolytes, which are required for
bodily functions, including muscle function. Electrolytes you'll find
in the human body include bicarbonate, calcium, chloride,
magnesium, phosphate and sodium.

Ensure your overall prepper supply list includes plenty of
emergency drinks on hand, including the ingredients and recipe on
how to
make your own electrolytes in the event you run out of
emergency drinks.

Pandemic supply #12: Bio-hazzard bags.
How is a bio-hazzard bag different from an ordinary trash bag?
You won't want to skimp! A bio-hazzard bag provides a high
density isolation liner to provide maximum film strength for tough
applications. They also feature star seal bottoms which allow
equal weight distribution and leak resistance. Additionally, bags
are red to indicate use for infectious waste or hazardous waste to
warn others.

The red infectious waste bags, right, are for the contagion that
you'll want to burn to help stop the pandemic.

Pandemic supply #13: Diapers (adult and kids).
Family members of cancer patients can appreciate more than
most the necessity for adult diapers when sickness strikes.
Containing the mess resolves the unsanitary conditions and
reduces spread of disease. Cloth diapers serve as a first aid item
for stopping bleeding, and you can use them to clean up vomit or
provide a cool water compress for a fever. Learn more about the
usefulness of cloth diapers in prepping with kids.

Pandemic supply #14: Vomit bags (emesis bags).
Single-use emesis bags, pictured right in blue, by Medline will
help with sickness cleanup. Used by Kaiser Hospitals, this product
is extremely hard to find. Learn
how to clean up vomit.

Pandemic supply #15: Laundry detergent.
You'll need to sterilize bedding or throw it away. Washing laundry
on the sanitary (deep clean) setting is imperative. In the old book
Velveteen rabbit, the little sick boys things were burned. It's not
a bad idea in modern times to get rid of the problem by burning if
all other means of sanitation are not available.

Pandemic supply #16: Portable radio.
As with any massive catastrophe, your list of pandemic supplies
should include
communications. A portable radio might just save
your life!

Pandemic supply #17: Water filtration system.
Water could also produce contaminants worthy of a pandemic.  
Even if the water is not the cause of sickness, the fact remains
that the entire water supply could be stopped if the population is
not able to work and ensure the municipal water supply operates
properly. A cutoff of the water supply would be uncertain doom
and devastation. Having a means to filter water would put your
survival at better odds. Get your
water storage system in place
now while there is still time.

Seventeen Things to Survive a Pandemic
In the event of a pandemic alert, here is a list of suggestions for
you and your family to follow. Mind you this list goes to extreme
measures, but you will need to take extreme measures to survive
a pandemic. Following is a list to help you survive a pandemic:

  1. Stock up on supplies, now while they are still available.
    Ensure you have the ten items described above to help you
    prepare for pandemic.
  2. Take Probiotics. Improve your family's intestinal flora now
    and especially during an outbreak!  Have plenty of probiotics
    on hand and increase your intake of probiotics in
    supplements and in the foods you eat, like Acidophilus in
    kefir and yogurts. Eat well, including a healthy diet of fresh
    fruits and vegetables.
  3. Reduce your dependency on antibiotics. Antibiotics are
    over used in the United States and this compounds the
    problem of adaptive micro-organisms. Talk to your physician
    about going without antibiotics.
  4. Get a survival prescription. Ask your doctor to prescribe
    Tamiflu or Relenza as either medication may effectively treat
    avian flu. Alternatively, consider Boiron Oscillococcinum* for
    Flu-like Symptoms. This homeopathic product helps relieve
    body aches, headache, fever, chills and fatigue.
  5. Don't touch stuff others touch. Avoid as much as possible
    contact with pencils and pens, elevator buttons, doorknobs,
    coins, handrails and places where many other hands have
    touched, particularly during the flu season.
  6. Avoid shaking hands. During flu season, tell others that
    you're not shaking hands. Don't worry about being rude: it's
    your life! Or give a fist bump!
  7. Wash hands frequently. Before eating and after having
    been out and about, make it a routine to wash your hands
    with warm hot water and clean under the fingernails. Recite
    the alphabet twice and you'll have washed your hands for an
    adequate time.
  8. Minimize spreading sickness with sneezes and coughs.
    Cover your mouth when you sneeze to avoid spreading
    droplets to your family. Turn your body away from someone
    coughing or sneezing. Again, don't worry about being rude.
  9. Avoid touching your face (eyes, nose and mouth). It's
    nearly impossible  to avoid touching your face. Give it a try!
    For one hour, try not to touch your face. Humans tend to
    touch their face six more times every few minutes. You'll
    quickly realize this fact when you give it go.
  10. Stay away from people. Just stay home during an extreme
    outbreak. Don't send the kids to school. Don't go to work.  
  11. Wear a NIOSH-95 Respirator (pandemic mask). If you
    must venture out and expose yourself and your family during
    a pandemic during extreme crisis, then by all means wear
    your mask! Who cares what others may think! You're a
    prepper and your goal is to survive. Wearing a mast is an
    absolute minimum requirement. Products such as masks and
    gloves, even an disposable apron or clothing can help you
    avoid contact with the deadly virus.
  12. Wear also your Tyvec suit, gloves, and goggles. This of
    course warrants an extreme situation or society may think
    you are "Howard Hughs-ing" on you.
  13. Quarantine Your Family: Set up a quarantine room if you
    suspect a family member is sick during a pandemic outbreak.
    For starters, you'll need duct tape and plastic shielding.
    Here's how to set up a Quarantine room.
  14. Take note. Keep a record of diarrhea, vomiting, coughing
    and breathing problems and rashes of anyone in your care,
    sothat you can report to medical staff if necessary. Make
    sure to mark the date and time, along with the severity of
    the problem at hand. In this way, you can monitor the
    progress of the virus.
  15. Get information. Check in with the Centers for Disease
    Control and the World Health organization for important
    alerts and information.
  16. Expect disruptions in power and water! As people stop
    showing up for work, the mechanics behind the grid will
    weaken and may eventually fail. You may as well expect the
    unexpected!
  17. Be alert about pneumonia. You may well survive a
    pandemic and yet succumb to the secondary problem of a
    pneumonia infection. At risk groups include people more than
    65, people with diabetes, people with asthma and other
    chronic illnesses.

How will it go down: pandemic scenario
A pandemic can quickly services shut down services as people
huddle at home or at the hospitals to deal with the immediate
problems. The domino effect will be in effect. People will swell
into hospitals and care facilities. Hospital staff will bring home
the pandemic whether it's the medical staff, the food staff, the
janitorial or administrative staff. Many will choose to stay at
home rather than to risk their lives. Gas stations could shut down
as employees no longer return to work.

The store shelves will be empty as trucks will not have enough
gas to deliver groceries. Employees will not be available to load
or unload trucks even if there were enough gas. Soon water and
electricity will halt as the grid shuts down to lack of manpower.
National Geographic did a good job of illustrating how a pandemic
could shut down society.
