Coronavirus prep...

...what if anything are you planning ?

I have 4 boxes of N-95

thinking the boondockers will survive, find a place 50 miles from the nearest city, plant yourself and ride it out.

15 million Americans are infected with the flu, and "More than 80,000 Americans died of the flu in the winter of 2017-2018, the highest number in over a decade, federal health officials said last week." NYT


I hope to live long enough for the Coronavirus to kill me.

Just use common sense around others that are sick and coughing/sneezing. Wash you hands, keep your hands out of your facial area, etc.

Wear a face mask if it makes you feel better....it won't prevent you from the virus.

Worst thing is to panic and cause one.

My late mother was a nurse and I still have a few of her books. I'm planning on reviewing the chapters on Infection Control, then I'm going to google that topic for an update... with a emphasis on respiratory infections.

I'm a full timer so last week I bought a three week supply of extra nonperishable food, it's the same stuff I eat all the time so it's not like it will go to waste if I don't need it. And I've also heard that the N95 masks won't help with this virus. You could say it will make you feel better, which is always good. On the other hand it might give you a false sense of security and make you go places you shouldn't have.

I lived in Miami Florida for many years and I've seen what happens when people think a hurricane is coming and wipe out grocery store shelves in a couple of days. So I don't really fear the Coronavirus, I fear panicked people creating a shortage where there is none. Does anyone remember the great toilet paper shortage of 1973, I do, there was plenty of toilet paper until everybody ran out and bought 100 rolls of it based on a rumor.

Since I'm a boondocker I plan on staying away from people if times get tough which is pretty easy for a boondocker.

I am going to stock up on finely ground black pepper because it makes me sneeze. Any time I find myself in a crowded situation like a long line at the checkout counter I will take a quick sniff of the pepper, sneeze, and watch everyone ahead of me in the line run away in a panic. It will also work to keep the seats beside me empty at concerts, movies, and heaven forbid, if I have to use public transportation. It is going replace body odor as my go to privacy weapon.

Yes
Many schools closed for a time, some for a week.
This issue seldom made national news.
Keep in mind the talking points and polotics
Surounding the Ebola virus.
The unknown
The fear
The uncertainty less facts can create a Mob reaction.

Like the flu
It affects persons,groups with lower immune systems .
Very young and very old persons

80,000 can die of the flu.in a season.
But look at the response this week to this strain.

1. Stay away from specific bars and night clubs.
2. Shop for healthy food at down times.
3. Choose carefully the restaurants you eat at.
Many dont do restaurants or bars.
Thats good.
4. Eat healthy and watch for symptoms.
5. Get plenty of rest.

Considering all of the above

We wont change our daily habits one bit.
And I haven't flied commercial for 20 years anyway.

yep follow good old practice of wash you hands ALOT, don't touch everything,

we are sort of isolated in a rural area, but other illnesses spread fast here as they do elsewhere.

most around us only go to town once a week or less. we ave food reserves for months if required, fuel and a source of fresh water.

if needed


we also AVOID hospitals and doctors offices during the flu season unless we just have to go


common sense and good practices


the presser a bit ago does seem to either scare you or give you sense of good depending on your political views


we all do not really trust the gov, but i am happy folks are being quarantined and checked


granted our yearly flu kills 20 to 40k a year...WOW.

Best to grab a couple extra rolls of bum wad just in case I guess. Average age the disease affects is 55. It says 80% are over the age of 60, and 75% of them have asthma, diabetes, and other existing health conditions. Children seem to very low on the risk level. The fact that it continues to spread across the world is a slight cause for concern. We will have to wait and see what the next couple weeks looks like. Some woman flew into Toronto today from Iran, then showed up at the hospital sick. She tested positive. I sure would be nervous if I had just flew in from Iran on that plane. That's how it continues to jump. Hopefully, it will start a downward curve.
