“That alone should tell you just HOW bad this is likely to get!”

Do you see biohazard suits being used by medical personnel for influenza? No!!
That alone should tell you just how bad this is likely to get!
Since Guangzhou joined the quarantine, 400 Million People are now on lockdown In China. That is the equivalent of 240 million Americans being confined to their homes, with one family member allowed out to get supplies every three days. Even with China’s MASSIVE bureaucracy and military manpower, they have huge problems policing this. Can you imagine trying to police this in the US?
I think that Covid-19 is way out of the league of eg MERS/SARS/Ebola, if only for the reason that you can be asymptomatic but shedding virus for at least 14 days. This virus has the ability to survive outside of the human body on an inert surface for a minimum of 5 days. Think pumps at gas stations, keypads at checkouts, elevator buttons in offices and hospitals, baskets/carts at the store. let alone the endless possibilities of transmission in a public restroom!
Now – some folks are a bit more “woke” than you.. try and find a box of 10 N95 masks for sale right now. A box of ten with valve should retail at about $12, but individual masks are selling for up to $19.99 on Amazon and EBAY, and almost everyone is sold out!
Some of us are ready.
Just a brief aside on the lethality of a novel virus… we farm rare and heritage chickens, and have a breed that only arrived in the US in April 2019. We got 43 day-olds at $100 each. We did not know that we had Marek’s Disease (an alphaherpes virus) on our land, and over the past 5 months it has killed all but 9 of them. That is an 80% loss rate!! Our other chickens obviously have immunity, although we think we know of a few that died from it, retrospectively, but that virus can stay on the surface of the ground for 13 months and survives 5 years underground. Imagine that scenario with a new viral strain like Covid-19 and humans.. it has been suggested by the WHO that up to 60% of the world’s population could be affected, under the worst case scenario. In the US, using that ratio, 210 million people could be infected, and at a 2% death rate, 4.2 million in this country could die.
The most awful video I caught was of three young Chinese children being placed in a “man-size” body bag. This virus hits the young and the old and everyone in between, so start researching and prepping NOW!
