In this November 21st story over at the Financial Times they report that largely due to 'globalization' and the ability for people to move from one location to another halfway around the world within hours, deadly contagious diseases such as 'Ebola' have the potential to spread worldwide, very rapidly, with their story also reporting that so-called 'global health failures' present a risk to our entire, interconnected world.
And while the Financial Times story argues: "Governments, policymakers and donors must face facts. Piecemeal, reactive approaches to global health are expensive and ineffective. Disease knows no boundary. Actions based on the control of a single disease do not build the robust, long-term systems that are needed ó not only to stop another outbreak but to address myriad other ailments that go untreated", as we'll explore within this ANP story, as Mac Slavo reports in this new story at SHTFPlan,†"the grim reality of pandemics is that most countries, including the United States, are not prepared for the eventuality. But just because governments are not prepared to protect the public, doesnít mean you donít have to be either."
Back in June, the National Review put out this story reporting that California had become America's first '3rd World State' with a massive outbreak of long thought vanquished 3rd world diseases, a crumbling infrastructure, rampant government corruption, gangs, crime and a totally out of touch 'wealthy elite', putting large parts of the state on the same level as some Asian, African and Latin American nations long given that '3rd world' label.†
Reporting within their story that the current meaning of "Third World" had come to transcend geography, politics, and ethnicity, it simply denotes poor failed states all over the globe of all races and religions,†their story then went on to explain how California, despite having some of the richest people living there in the entire country, also now fits many of the criteria required to be a '3rd world nation'.†
Third World symptomologies are predictably corrupt government, unequal or nonexistent applicability of the law, two rather than three classes, and the return of medieval diseases. Third World nations suffer from high taxes and poor social services, premodern infrastructure and utilities, poor transportation, tribalism, gangs, and lack of security. Another chief characteristic of a Third World society is the official denial of all of the above, and a vindictive, almost hysterical state response to anyone who points out those obvious tragedies.
Another is massive out-migration. Residents prefer almost any country other than their own. Think Somalia, Venezuela, Cuba, Libya, or Guatemala.
Does 21st-century California increasingly fit that definition ó despite having the nationís most amenable climate and most beautiful and diverse geography, with major natural ports facing the dynamic Asian economies, and being naturally rich in timber, agriculture, mining, and energy, and blessed with a prior centuryís inheritance of effective local and state government?
Americans donít have to look as far as Venezuela to see the massive failure of a government incapable of delivering the basics of what people need from their government. A brief look at California shows how the twisted priorities of Democrat political leadership are creating a dangerous environment for the residents of the Golden State.
While combatting climate change remains a top priority for Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom and Democrat Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, the streets of Californiaís cities are filled with homeless camps, garbage, and disease-spreading rats.
In a throwback to medieval times, Los Angeles is facing an infectious disease epidemic caused by flea-borne disease linked to rat-infested streets. Last October, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health issued a health alert surrounding an outbreak of flea-borne typhus in the homeless population in downtown Los Angeles.
As we hear in the 1st video at the bottom of this story titled "Drug Zombies, Tent Cities and Medieval Diseases: The Battle for Los Angeles",†there's a battle being waged in LA right now. A battle in the form of a humanitarian crisis, but also a battle to control the public's perception of why it is happening.
As our videographer reports in the 2nd video below, almost every liberal city across the country and the world goes through a predictable path of decay and destruction although the liberals long running these big cities falling into hellholes will never tell you that it's their own liberal policies to blame but seek to put the blame upon someone else, usually either President Trump or the so-called 'Republican politics of division'.††
And in the final video below from 'Prepping 2.0 Podcast Shows', guests Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy talk with us about the leading killer of people in a collapse situation, disease, and how we can go about preparing ourselves, our families and our homes for the kind of TEOTWAWKI situation that we pray never comes.†
Yet as Mac Slavo reports in this story over at SHTFPlan, with scientists now saying that an outbreak of a flu-like illness could sweep across the planet within a 36 hour period at some point in the future, leaving tens of millions dead in its wake, we should all prepare ourselves now while we still can to 'shelter indoors' our own homes if necessary for a period of time should America ever be struck by a deadly outbreak.
And while we always hope and pray and strive for keeping ourselves and our loved ones as healthy as possible, having a 'quarantine room' set up within our homes, 'just in case', could save lives. ANP is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program. From Mac Slavo over at SHTFPlan.†
Not knowing what kind of pandemic (whether itís a horribly painful stomach virus or the super flu) is likely to strike often leaves folks wondering how to prepare. But the brainstorming is the first step in preparedness, and the next, is figuring out where to have a quarantine room, preferably one with a toilet.
If someone in your family gets sick, you should be able to shut them off from the rest of the house in a quarantine room. If the illness causes a lot of stomach distress such as vomiting and diarrhea, youíll want a toilet in the room, so consider making it a bathroom or have a portable toilet on hand. This room should be large enough to hold a cot for an ill person to lie down on, and you should have some plastic to hang over doorways as an extra precaution.
You will also want to have an adequate supply of food and water so you do not need to venture out into the public in order to avoid getting sick in the first place. But just in case, you should have the supplies on hand to care for sick family members or yourself.
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)
Keep as many of your quarantine/pandemic supplies together as possible. This will make things easy to find and for action to be taken if someone does get sick. Make sure youíre using bleach to clean the surfaces of your home frequently so no one else will get sick.
As Slavo also wisely reports in his story, those new to prepping should prepare slowly, doing so only as long as one's budget allows them to do so, definitely not cutting one's self off from what they need now. Also urging us to continually add new supplies and first aid preparedness supplies to increase our own level of preparedness and our ability to help others in need as time goes on and our budget allows, as we hear in the final video below, we'll all be much better off if we prepare to take care of ourselves and our loved ones should SHTF than relying upon 'government' and the health care industry who'll have their hands full anyways.†
