As the "sick map" confirms that the United States is still number one in the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 coronavirus infections in the world, the Daily Mail reports the U.S. "hits new record for highest number of coronavirus deaths in a day (1,2 86)," to which the Drudge Report characterized as the "deadliest 24 hours," in the U.S., we are noting that reality is starting to hit previously clueless Americans right in the face.
As that reality hits, news of grocery store workers, one of the few businesses marked as "essential" during the lockdowns, quarantines and in the stay-at-home orders, are reportedly dying from the virus. Some stores are closing, others shutting down just long enough to doing a clean sweep to kill any possible traces of the virus on surfaces, while others are using more robots to limit human interaction.
We now see the media is attempting to get President Trump to actually issue a federal order to close grocery stores, something the President diverted away from immediately, but which highlights how quickly people could become dependent on just what they have in their homes at any given moment.
Make no mistake, people like that reporter, along with climate change/green new deal proponents that believe there are too many people alive and that many should die, especially the elderly or sick , are all more than willing to shut off the food supply to tens of millions of people. Then we have the depopulation enthusiasts that are busy encouraging people to ignore the quarantines and lockdowns and just go out and get exposed or expose others to the deadly virus anyway.
Those that doubted there is a depopulation agenda, should also be awakening right about now to the reality of who and what these people truly are and what their endgame is. Just watch the news, visit chat forums and social media sites, read who is saying what and they are easy to distinguish.
If there is one thing I have learned over the last six months since my heart attack, subsequent cardiac arrests, dying just to be brought back, is that giving up is not an option.
Period. Stop. Do not pass go and do not collect $200.
That brings me to the "stay solution based" comment. If there is an issue, find the solution. Share that knowledge, you may just save someone's life.
In no way, shape or form are we recommending downplaying the death of thousands, or maybe millions by the end of this pandemic, but focusing on survival, on doing the best with what you have, and finding things that aren't readily available anymore, is much more important than sitting in a corning crying over not being able to get what you want, when you want it.
Leave that to those that listened to the MSM when they said it won't become a pandemic, those that didn't pay attention and didn't start preparing for months after the news came out of China about COVID-19, continuing to ignore it after Italy succumbed because the media downplayed it and refused to take protective and preventative measures until it was too late, because the media didn't tell them to.
By no means am I suggesting they deserve to catch the virus and die, I believe life is sacred and ignorance and stupidity are not offenses that deserves the death penalty. It is preppers that saw what was coming, survivalists that encouraged others to take this seriously and pray isn't as bad as it appears, preppers that only needed to "top off" items versus panic shopping, that will survive the easiest, and it will be preppers that bounce back from the spiritual, emotional and financial damage in the end.
It will also be preppers that are not totally dependent on the government to feed themselves when all is said and done.
So... we continue to prepare.
STILL OR BACK IN STOCK
Apparently, one of the favorite segments of our coronavirus coverage has been our "still-in-stock or back-in-stock" portions if reader emails, and thank you notes, are anything to go by.
Retailers and online sellers were completely unprepared for the incredibly high volume of demand of certain items, including but not limited to protective and preventative gear, emergency survival food, canned goods, and cleaning supplies.
ANP started a regular practice of hunting down products that had been emptied off store shelves as well as online and providing readers with a running list of things either still-in-stock or back in stock, and substitutions for those items that have a delivery date of a month or two.
Readers responded in an overwhelmingly positive manner. ANP uses an affiliate system so we do not have access to names, personal information, or credit card information, but we do have access through our dashboard to items bought using our affiliate links, which shows us that when we hunt for a product or a substitute or find something that was previously listed as "currently unavailable," readers grab some to top off their stores with those items.
First, I want to say thank you, your purchases make the hunting, researching and screaming at the computer when something says "in stock" then says won't ship for a month or two, worth it.
Secondly in response to the thank you notes and gratitude that has been expressed to us, you are quite welcome.
Last but not least....below you will find a list of things other readers have bought a lot of, and items either still in stock or back in stock that will help keep you from having to leave home to shop and be exposed.
Survival and prepping books seem to be in high demand, whether it is gardening indoors our outside how-to books, or how to prep books, etc.... so a quick list starting with the most important "book" of all.
Bandannas are one option. They may not totally prevent one from catching a cold, flu or virus, but that can limit the spray from sneezing and coughing, and if dipped in the right solutions, can also kill off viruses before they make it to your face, nose and mouth.
We've shown this video before, but for anyone new reading it, it could save a life, so here it is again.
Note - Please use caution when opening packages that are delivered. Open them outside, dispose the packaging . wipe down the product before bringing it in the house. Wear gloves and then wash hands after touching anything from the outside.
Any suggestions on food items I may have missed or forgotten, please feel free to list them and provide links in the comment section.
BOTTOM LINE - BE SMART, CONTINUE TO PREPARE FOR THE WORST AND HOPE FOR THE BEST
That really is the bottom line.
We have no idea when this pandemic will peak, so to speak, or even if it already has. What we do know is this has shown us conclusively that those already prepared are far less likely to rush to the store and start emptying the shelves because they already have most of what they need, so they simply went to top off their stores.
They are the same people that are handling the lockdowns and self-quarantines far better than those that never even knew what "prepping" was.
Be smart. Continue to prepare for the worst while hoping for the best.
When this is all over, nothing will quite be the same as before this pandemic hit.
God bless and be safe.
