    Has anyone checked out the documentary, "Pandemic" which is currently on Netflix? It's really interesting stuff. There's scientists who are currently working on a vaccine that will cover all strains of viruses going back 100 years. Hopefully, it'll succeed and they won't be left 'a day late and a dollar short', as they say....

    Hi!! I’m new!!

    The CDC is posting this map as the latest as far as cases go.

    It looks scary, but even if it’s 1-5 cases they block out the whole country.

    I’m, personally, getting to be about 70% scared that those numbers are going to keep rising. Esp as the CDC themselves state “the numbers in the U.S. will continue to grow.”

    If I see the major shipping port cities in China lock down — then I’ll be really be ready to ratchet up my level of seriousness.

    Especially- as I hate and I’m completely mortified to say this in front of you guys, I haven’t been in ANY position to prep over the past .... 6 years. Single mom. Zero extra $$. At all.

    That said, I already have a plan in motion to use my next check to start buying the long term food stuffs in bulk, masks, water filters (which ones are really the best?? We have beautiful fast running forest river, sometimes slower in summer abutting property, not sure of source; 2 gross ponds on property), water in gallon jugs- tho I do have a bunch of gal already saved up, and .... etc. Wish I had my gun license already. Something I’ve been forever “meaning to do....” At this point starting grad school has taken priority. (It’s always something.) Again - if I can’t afford a handgun or a rifle...

    We do, luckily, live in isolated area. Up on mountainside. I’m sure I could forage with the right info come spring. Need to start looking into that.

    And push comes to shove, I’m not afraid to pull my 6 year old daughter out to “homeschool” her. I did it already with my 22 year old daughter & bit younger boys couple decades ago for different reason. (My grad school is remote for most of the year.)

    Ok, enough from me!! A newcomer to your wonderful world!!

    —— Rachael

    Ps — I guess because I’m new I cannot post photos or links. That’s ok. But sorry about that - getting you all excited about a cool map & everything!! Lol But if you google CDC coronavirus world map it should come right up. Sorry again.

    Honestly half of these issues would be solved by simply keeping regular hygiene. I don't know if anyone here has ever gone to China but soap is virtually non existent even in medical environments. Keeping basic measures like teas, or cleaning your hands with vinegar or similar substances will go a long way.

    Have you ever been?

    just a little research and it tells me Chinese people are very clean.

    I bought the 3M8210 masks and face shields for the wife and self. Hope we won't need to use them, but having them on hand is better then not!

    The talking heads on FOX this morning did a segment on masks. They are already in short supply with delayed delivery dates on line.

    I've got to do some insulation work soon, better see if hardware store is stocked with masks.

    In a pinch, a large kerchief worn masked bandit style is better than nothing. You can wash those in warm soapy bleach and reuse.

    Main thing is stay away from crowds, cities, public transport. Wash your hands, never touch face before doing so.

    Anybody know what "shelf life" of these viruses are on surfaces? Put yer hand in yer wallet you better wash it! Cash/change is dirty.
