My Thoughts On:
Sanitation, Waste Disposal, Medical Isolation & Death In The PAW
By Jerry D Young
This article contains my thoughts on several related subjects. Lack of some can cause the others, or make them much worse.
Part #1 — Sanitation options:
Sometimes sanitation can be a difficult subject to discuss. I believe it is one of the top subjects that needs to be discussed, especially when it comes to a group that might just be in close quarters at some point it time. If everyone knows and understands the basics, the ins-and-outs, the nuances, and especially the absolute needs, life will be much less unpleasant, less smelly, and definitely safer from a medical standpoint.
Part #2 — Waste Disposal:
If the sewer and drain systems are not working, alternative means must be found to dispose of what water is used for cleaning. Do not just dump it willy nilly outside. Determine an area where the water can spread out and soak into the ground at all possible, without pooling up. Try to find several alternate areas meeting the same criteria and rotate their use.
Part #3 — How to quarantine/isolate those that might be contagious:
I will not be going into long-term self-quarantine in this article. Standard security precautions are the rule, and taking care of basic human needs for two weeks to a year or more are a subject in and of themselves. This article is just as the title states. How to quarantine and isolate anyone that could be contagious for the incubation time of the suspected illness.
Part #4 — PAW Burials:
There will not be too many options for dealing with dead bodies, particularly human ones. If left out animal depredation will almost certainly occur. In many cases this can turn a normally benign animal, such as a family dog, into a man-eater that will go after living humans if other food sources are not available. And possibly even if there are.
Just my opinion.

Jerry used to show up here from time to time? (Maybe it was OTP?) Either way, a learned man he is.

Good article and eye opening. Much of this I have covered but he brings up points I haven’t addressed, but will soon.

make sure to hit the link and read the entire "comment" by Jerry >>>>> it had to be censored for some reason and cut short from my original posting ....
again >>>> the blog itself from Sullivan is a decent read it self .....
half decent discussion article on some of the so-called "extinct" diseases that are starting to re-appear around the country >>>> if you didn't hear - a La La Land area municipal employee caught a Dark Ages disease ....

St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls.
