Disclaimer: We at ANP encourage people not to panic, that affects thinking, forces people to make bad decisions and does absolutely nothing to help any situation. We at ANP also do not think the sky is falling. The world is not ending and every person in America is not going to become infected with COVID-19 or any possible mutations that may occur.
With that out of the way, we do believe the time to start preparing to self-quarantine, has passed, so those that haven't made arrangements to get prepared to hunker down within the home for an undetermined amount of time , needs to consider doing so right now.
We understand some people cannot avoid leaving their homes, do to work, schooling, etc...... and those people should take the proper precautions when outside the home to limit the possibility of contagion. That would include wearing gloves when out and about, avoiding crowded places, dining in the home rather than outside the home, and basically using common sense.
For those that can work from home or do not need to work anymore, prepare to self-quarantine.
Not only because we do not know enough about this new Coronavirus to be complacent. Also not only because of the lack of proper data of infection, being that people can be sick, and asymptomatic for between 14-21 days, and still be infectious.
The fear and anger, represented perfectly by a flight having to be diverted to Denver after passengers became unruly because someone coughed and sneezed, is a huge cause for concern as more people do become infected across the country.
So, we at ANP do not want you to panic, but others are doing so, and those people can, and usually will, become dangerous to others.
In New York, the governor has urged residents to avoid "crowded spaces," but, as is typical with politicians, he then decreed that the mass transit, which is nothing but crowded spaces, did not need to be shut down.
The aforementioned and a host of other reasons are why any and all preventative measures to protect yourself and your family and/or close friends, should be taken.... right now.
Recent I wrote a piece about how to create a quarantine room in or at your home. What was needed inside, placement of the room, drop cloths, food stations, and more, for any family member or friend that needed a safe haven, but could be infected, as to not risk your health or family.†
With health officials saying that "We're past the point of containment," and strategizing on how to mitigate the damage, with claims that they expect that we will see at least "two months, probably, of difficulty" ahead, why not create a healthy quarantine zone/area?
Not for those infected, or at risk, but to keep the healthy people away from the public, considering many that have spread this virus had no clue they even had it when they did so.
The last place you want to be is where other people are, whether the virus has been reported in your city, town or village, or not, because by the time it is reported, it is too late to preemptively avoid them if no one knows they are sick.
Officials have given an estimated time frame of two months, so preparing for at least three, for those that aren't already, is at least a step in the right direction.
For those already prepared with enough food, whether freeze dried, canned or just a great stock of it in your freezer and fridge, then only minor adjustments or preparations are needed.
Perhaps a QUARANTINE sign to keep people away from your home. Someone sees that, they aren't going to think "healthy quarantine zone," they are going to stay as far away as possible thinking someone could be infected.† Maybe a pandemic prepping book, just to make sure you didn't forget something really important.
For those that could not lock your doors right now, and be able to survive for three months with just what is in the home, well finding what you need may be difficult, depending on where you live.
For example, we have a reader in Chicago that is not noticing empty store shelves yet, but a reader from Charlotte, Virginia is seeing out of stock signs in some stores for hand sanitizer and† disinfectant wipes (make your own!!), and she cannot find powdered milk. She also sent along some images she took for ANP.
Her email below:
The out of stock sign for hand sanitizer is from Harris Teeter, as you can see there are still disinfectant wipes on the shelf, but I assume thats all they have. One thing I haven't been able to find is powered milk. There were 3 boxes left at Kroger, and that tooks days for me to find. Also included are a few pics from Walmart. No powered milk there, and only 2 boxes of elderberry. That will likely be one of the next items gone. Also I couldn't find much rubbing alcohol. They had a decent amount of canned chicken, if one considers that a "decent" amount. Still a good amount of empty space between items however. Dollar Tree did still have some of that freeze dried fruit, but I am sure it won't last. I will get together some easy recipes for a yeast bread. There was tons of yeast. The shelf life is about a year, but I have used it way past that. 6 simple ingredients, yeast, sugar, water, fat, flour, salt. All of which seem to be ignored, for now, by the masses. Thanks for taking the time, and I will send some recipes soon. I say again everything you do matters, furthermore as I commented on one of Doug Hagmanns last videos with Steve Quayle, all of you are saving our lives. Posting articles day in and day out, that people like me have benefited from. I am so grateful! Much gratitude, and many prayers, [Name redacted].
A couple more images showed empty spots in the coffee and canned chicken shelves.
The point here is that while some places, are not seeing massive shortages yet, other places are† seeing runs on on number of items like those mentioned above, and as has been reported almost everywhere, toilet paper.
Since almost all reports are claiming toilet paper is the most sought after, we'll list the ones we have found to still be in stock, along with facial tissues and paper towels. (Note- Cannot guarantee how long they will still be available).
While we totally understand the need to create quarantine rooms for the sick or those possibly exposed to the virus, what we often do not see are reports about a "healthy quarantine area," to help prevent the spread. Those infected often do not even know it until it is too late to quarantine themselves before infecting others, so if everyone that can stay home, does, there is less chance of contracting the virus.
It is not only up to the sick to take preventative measures, especially since many do not even know they have anything more than the usual flu, but the healthy need to also take some responsibility by taking measures to keep themselves healthy and away from crowded areas, and other people outside your home.
In order to see exactly how fast this virus can spin out of control, just look to the countries that are seeing a massive increase seemingly overnight... like Italy, show below.
