Thanks guys and have a SAFE and awesome weekend
Welcome to the forum.

My first instinct is to....start reading the forum threads.
An awful lot of stuff has been covered by some talented and prepped people.

Go here and everything is broken down into various categories.

I'll second what @Robie said

And, I'll help you with a comprehensive long term preparedness plan.

Being prepared is not just for some health scare that we have with the CO-VID-19. Being prepared is a total lifestyle change. Its having your total needs met with Shelter, Water, Food, Medical, Security and Comfort.

Its having the right tools for the job and then some. Its having some extra money in the bank, extra food in the pantry, extra toilet paper, extra bandaids, extra bullets, extra rifles, etc etc etc. I like to call it a Journey with No Destination, but a Journey none the less.

If your family is not supportive or is a roadblock to being prepared then distance yourself from anyone who is a roadblock on your journey. If your girlfriend is going to be a hinderance and potential a royal bitch about your Journey, get a new one. Yeah, she may have a vagina, I get it, but Bitches be a dime a dozen so get you a new one that will support her man. Life's short but life is really freakin' short with some bitch constantly messing with your mind just because she has a vagina.

Shelter, Water, Food, Medical, Security and Comfort are things to focus on.

And remember, all the medicine, bleach, masks, food, water and shelter don't mean shit if you can't defend it.

Good luck and hope to hear more from you on the forum!

Your new friend,

Slippy! :vs_wave:

The Virus has been confirmed in the two states to the left and right, with one middle aged lawyer in severe condition

https://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/westchester-county-man-tests-positive-for-coronavirus-in-nys-1st-possible-community-spread-case-gov-cuomo/2310134/

My home state right now has over 400 cases being closely monitored by the state. Four of which cases have come back to be negative for the
novel SARS-CoVID-19 virus which is 20X deadlier than the Influenza virus and highly suggested to " not be natural " by man experts including a Well Establish Microbiologist who has laid the genetic facts out stating " I do not think this could Accidentally mutate like this in nature "
I really do not want to sit around and wait for the first case to hit next door to my house before I start getting any kind of plan as I already feel late

https://www.zerohedge.com/health/creator-bioweapons-act-says-coronavirus-biological-warfare-weapon

Problem is that the people I am with seem not to recognize the severity of the situation. Especially when the head of the CDC
comes out and warns people to start getting your crap together and to expect " Severe Disruptions ".


Instead my GF goes out to the grocery store for snacks
and buys Chinese food. She asks me " Are you really going to eat all of that?" suggestive towards my food supply.
This seems HIGHLY irresponsible to be acting this way when this is happening. This is not a stab at Chinese people for buying Chinese food but rather it is a possibility they have relatives.

I had my mother pick up 2 boxes of nonperishable food items to at least have that stocked and plan to at least get one more box if possible.
I have 2 respirators and rubber gloves and sanitation material and thats about it right now. I know it is not much and its far from ideal
but I am looking at doing anything that I can. I have even thought about situations where Id take off and try to tough it out in my truck.
But after Bill Gates warned " That this could be the once in a century

https://www.kff.org/news-summary/writing-in-nejm-bill-gates-warns-covid-19-could-be-once-in-a-century-disease-outbreak/

My question is:

Being that people can NOT rely on the Federal Government for complete transparency so citizens can really give this situation the respect it demands, making our chances look even scarier. I understand that if they did this it would cause utter panic.

Being that my closest family members and Girlfriend are not giving this situation the respect it demands it puts me at a HUGE risk.
In defense I have refused contact of all kinds and stay at least 8 feet away from any person I can and sleep in a different room.
I know its not much right now and I was hoping someone here could help me with a little something more to at least give me some direction.

Cities are not quarantined off for the flu

While you guys are reading " if you have not already " Check out the "Evn.2.0.1" a simulated, hypothetical scenario of a severe pandemic that Mr.Microsoft was able to roll out when they first heard about this in wuhan . at least there is someone smart on the job. I could imagine if AOC was on it this country would be jacked!

Anyways I apologize for the unorganized mess this is. I really am scrambling for answer.
Any ideas about what I can do if it hits the fan would be great... anything.

I know this sounds less than nice, but I think your girlfriend is a concern.
Are y’all shacking up? Built-in problem. Did she nonchalantly use your money in a wasteful manner while you are trying to keep the family safe from a perceived threat? If so, I would gather her belongings, show her the door and change the locks.

As I said, less than nice, but nice and vulnerable is stupid.

The best help I can give you is to tell you to take a deep breath, . . . exhale slowly, . . . go in the bathroom and get your drawers unwadded.

While you were obsessing over the corona virus and it's complications, . . . let's say it took you a 15 minute stretch to formulate your questions.

In that same time frame: 1 person died on the very worst day of corona virus deaths (108 for the 24 hr period)

But, . . . 273 died of cancer, . . . 256 died of heart disease, . . . 45 people died of diabetis, . . . 29 committed suicide, . . . another 28 died of mosquito bites, . . . 14 were murdered outright . . . and three people died of snake bite in the time it took you to write it, and one of us read it.

Take a deep breath, . . . wash your hands, . . . sit down and read your Bible, . . . those three things will do you much more good than anything else we could tell you in 15 minutes.

May God bless,
Dwight

Everyone you know that don’t take you seriously will be knocking on your door when the SHTF, prep the way that makes you feel right, the less people that know the better, especially the disrespectful, caring is one thing but submission to the irrational is a whole different ball game. As stated earlier, there is good information here and good people to go to for questions, be vigilant, better have and not need then to need and not have....

Keep quiet and work on being prepared. Ditch the Bitch if she is unwilling to prepare a bit. I am sure she is nice but in a real crisis she is going to be an anchor in your butt. Your parents are grown ups and if you can not convince them of the wisdom of preparedness, that is just to bad. We all make choices. But preparedness goes beyond Coronavirus.

You can get rid of the bitch but not your mother.

Best thing you can do inside is make everyone wash their hands and face,

when they come in from being in a public place, without touching else anything beforehand.

I don't know how the virus is transmitted yet, there are a couple of thoughts but not verified.

Clean steering wheels, door handles, keys and lastly face and hands.

Avoid outsiders as much as possible, same for those you live with, get rid of the bitch.

I carry a disinfectant bottle made with 90% alcohol, Providine, and bleach in each Cherokee,

started wiping door handles, steering wheel and shifter after getting in.

Get a lot more food if possible, I am seeing it getting in short supply around here now, with only 8 cases in the state.

Hey yall, i got a wicked research paper on the " Origin " of the SARS CVID 19 virus from a reddit source. Wanna see?

"There's research papers about it. When I get home, I'll post the titles and links to the papers.

But the article where I found these papers is this:

https://jameslyonsweiler.com/2020/01/30/on-the-origins-of-the-2019-ncov-virus-wuhan-china/

There's citations that link to other sources. Definitely worth the read."
I started to disregard until I saw recombination.

Come on guys, stop telling Wounded Eagle to ditch his lady. Many of our ladies are at a different mental state about prepping than we are and simply tolerate our prepping habits to keep peace in the house.

Wounded Eagle, Start by keeping at least 2-3 weeks of easy to fix food that will last years in the pantry along with water and the ability to purify more water. Add lot's of spices and coffee ect. Build up from there. Add a way to cook stuff like a tiny propane camping stove with two 20 lb barbeque grill type propane tanks or a good rocket stove that burns sticks. Most people on sites like this site keep a bit more than 2 weeks worth of supplies and broaden out the mixture of supplies as they plan for longer term events.

Start with rice, beans, and pasta with different canned sauces and lots of spices. Stuff that will keep for years. Figure on 2000 calories per day per person as a minimum. This advice is just if you're looking to get through a 2-3 week self-quarantine period but is a good start for any prepping mindset. Don't forget any common OTC meds you may want along with toilet paper ect. Enough to get through a few weeks stuck at the house.

You can get a lot more serious with more supplies, fuel, batteries, ect. but it sounds like you're just looking for a bit of safety if you need to stay at the house for a few weeks.

Everyone saying “don’t worry about corona”, that’s cool. Except if the virus itself isn’t that bad, ( which I believe it’s much worse than reports indicate) there are the social consequences that are accompanying it. What’s a prepper gonna do when they can’t continue stocking up as usual? Then it’s not a luxury, it’s a necessity. The shortage from panic buying can literally force you to start using your stockpiles. Bullet sales in my state went up 108 percent total. The masks and gloves shelves at Walmart are empty, I see folks buying 6 and 7 cases of water at a time now regularly. Just saying but when shit runs out, the fear of corona can easily cause a degree of social unrest. Take any natural disaster, amplify it by an undetermined area of effect. Pay attention to everything. It all matters. You should explain things that you’re worried about to your girlfriend. Do the research. Use facts. And explain that you are worried for yourself AND her safety. Just my opinion.
