infection control after shtf

  1. Coronavirus
    Confession time, I was caught behind the curve with face mask and hand sanitizer. Even though I have a case of N95 mask, I quickly realized they will not last for long. Maybe this is a topic for another thread, but I feel cloth face mask with a filer is the way to go. N95 mask have a habit...

    Watching and reading the news it appears everything revolves around Coronavirus testing, why? I feel we are being led to believe that if a certain percentage of the population is tested, then everything will be ok. Do we not realize testing is a single snapshot in time? Just because X number...

    Peoples actions during Coronavirus lock down has reinforced the idea that people must be protected from themselves. There are people who say their rights can not be restricted, and that the lock down is one step from martial law. I m not going to deny any of those facts. There are two issues...
  4. Coronavirus
    Rant ... OK, until now the most common PPE abuse I've seen is wearing safety glasses on top of ones head in a manufacturing plant. The other day I saw 4 people in proximity. Only one was not wearing their mask below their nose. We've all seen leaders do the same. They complain the PPE is...

    Every time I go to the grocery store, or even go to work, things seem to be getting a more serious. Today on the way home from work I saw people in their vehicle with mask on. Not a big deal but nice to see people wearing them. Stores counting how many people are going in and out. Cars lined...

Third week of January, I bought some...

    Question for the more serious preppers and long term planners that already have supplies to survive the first year (food, water, shelter, safety) do you have medications, specifically antibiotics, to keep away the chance of infection related deaths? I read that even today 5 out of every 100 kids...

    I am looking at working out how to make penicillin. My thought is that having the ability to continually supply medicine might, might be a great capability should it somehow become unavailable. Best article I've found Here Although I am aware there are a number of sites that give rough...
  10. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I thought I would post this so others would get an idea what to include in their must have's to be your own doctor in critical times. I've been a researcher for over 20 years in natural methods to treat myself and this is what I have accumulated in my bag of medicines that are easily obtained...

    Regarding the causes of autism and other diseases, an article in the NYT says [in part]: "Suspicions of toxins [[as a cause of autism]] arise partly because studies have found that disproportionate shares of children develop autism after they are exposed in the womb to medications such as...
