When You Can't Even Leave Your House
With all the conflicting information out there about what this virus is capable of and the fact that it is randomly popping up in areas all over the globe now. I think it's pretty safe to say that at this point someone(s) is/are lying about the whole thing.
I also find it hard to believe that the death toll in these African countries only amounts to a few thousand people like they claim. It seems a vast understatement if you ask me, but I am sure the facts will continue to leak out as things progress.
The real question is will the virus continue to progress?
A situation like a worldwide pandemic of death is about the worst case survival scenario one can come up with. Possibly not as bad as global nuclear war or a real zombie apocalypse but worse than most other cases I can think of off the top of my head. Depending on what we find out about the particulars of this virus we may not even be able to survive it by prepping actually and must resign ourselves to either catching it and living through it or hiding away until a vaccine is discovered. If the thing never dies out eventually we are all going to have to re-enter the world.
If hiding out is your plan how long do you think it will take before a cure is discovered, mass produced and then delivered to those of us not at the top of the worldwide food chain?
Do you have the supplies stored to completely shut yourself in for six months? A Year? Longer?
Do you have the mental resolve to isolate yourself for that long or do you begin to go stir crazy if you can't socialize every 2 or 3 days?
Do you have the intestinal fortitude to stay where it is safe even if it means your pets starve?
Do you claim to be self sufficient only as long as the money holds out?
Simple questions but I doubt they have simple answers for any of us and those who have been fooling themselves (and others) will quickly be culled from the herd I imagine.
When the lights go out or the propane tank runs low will you freeze to death now that the gas company no longer picks up the phone or the guy you used to buy your firewood from has fallen ill?
No deliveries. No canned food specials at the local store. Just you and your current preps for months of locked in solitude with only your family for company.
Even then you have to hope someone doesn't come knocking. What ya gonna do when a body suddenly materializes on your front porch over night?
I doubt any of us are completely prepared for such a scenario and I am not saying it's going to happen but it might be best to start asking yourself all these questions right now.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
