#1) Boost your immune system function with medicinal herbs and nutrientsAll patients who have survived Ebola so far can credit their immune systems for saving their lives.
Anyone who is not actively taking steps right now to significantly boost their immune function with anti-viral herbs, natural medicines, superfoods and nutritional supplements is putting their own life at risk.
#2) Significantly enhance your local food supplies in anticipation of quarantines and food disruptionsOne of the first things that happens in a medical quarantine is that food quickly becomes scarce.
#3) Anticipate disruptions in everything: banking, emergency services, water, power and moreWhen any region is subjected to a medical quarantine, it means citizens in that region can’t go to work. Those workers run the banks, police departments, water treatment facilities, power plants and so on.
#4) Acquire basic medical protection and isolation gear, including plastic sheetingIf Ebola spreads throughout North America, hospitals will be quickly overrun with patients. Most people seeking medical care will be sent home to die. Presently, 82% of infected patients in Africa are being turned away from hospitals and told to go home.
Do you have basic medical supplies at home to take care of yourself or an infected family member? Do you have isolation supplies to isolate one infected family member from other members of your family?
#5) Have a bug-out plan ready to go, and have the fuel and gear to follow your planIf Ebola begins to spread in your local city, do you have a plan to evacuate before the quarantine occurs?
Medical quarantines should truthfully be called “death zones” because once they’re put in place, no one is allowed to leave until they’re either immune or dead… or until the viral transmission has completely halted (which usually only happens after everyone is either immune or dead).
#5) Get some extra cash in anticipation of financial and electronic commerce disruptionsIf a medical quarantine is announced in your local area, it won’t take long for local banks and cash machines to be out of order.
How will you acquire the cash to purchase all the supplies you’ll desperately need in a quarantine? Food prices will instantly skyrocket, and anti-viral herbs and natural medicines will be almost priceless (if you can find them at all).
#6) Set aside a large, reliable, self-contained water sourceWhere will you get water if the local water treatment facility stops functioning? Most people have no idea.
You will need a large supply of backup water stored on site. The easiest solution is to buy a bathtub water bob and fill it to the max. This will give you 100 gallons or so — a good start that might last you a few days.
#7) Have a plan for household safety and defense against lootersIf you wake up one morning and find yourself locked down in a medical quarantine zone, how exactly are you planning to protect your household from looters who are desperate for food, water and other supplies? Do you seriously think the government is going to have the manpower to guard your home and ensure your safety? Not a chance. Not even if they want to.
#8) Consider permanently moving away from high-density population centersBizarre viral pandemics and superbugs are sweeping across our planet right now. Human activity has caused wild imbalances in the natural ecosystems, and we should all expect to see wave after wave of pandemic diseases for decades to come.
In any pandemic, cities quickly become death traps due to the high population density found there. Rural areas are inherently safer from infectious disease precisely because they have far lower population densities (and therefore fewer opportunities for disease to spread among humans).
