Is the Government Being Upfront About the Ebola Risks

by Craig
The latest Ebola virus is one of the worst outbreaks to date. The virus left its country of origin and spread to other countries including the heavily populated area of Nigeria.

Surviving an Ebola Economy Crash

by Craig
A virus that has no cure is the perfect harbinger of an economic collapse. For those who think it can't happen in their countries because Ebola is “over there,” then you should know a few facts. The Ebola virus has already left its original boundaries. The experts that are telling you that you have nothing to worry about are already looking worried themselves. In fact, the CDC and WHO knows the potential risks that the Ebola virus can make it outside its host country. This risk is present because of the volume of international travel. That’s why the LAX has [...]

Isolate and Quarantine at Home in Case of Ebola Virus

by Craig
Whether it’s you or someone else you love, you need to separate yourself from others. The best way that you can do this is by using a tent. Just like the tent that can be used to put in place a 21 day quarantine for new people joining your group, you can use the tent for anyone showing signs of the virus. If it’s yourself, go immediately to the isolation tent and if you’re not prepared, you’ll have to arrange for someone to leave supplies without coming into contact with you. Isolation Tent Is Necessary This is why it’s better [...]

by Craig

Just think, if you’re going to head to the hospital because you think you have Ebola symptoms, where do you think the other people experiencing similar symptoms are also going? Avoid hospital and quarantine center You’re going to remove yourself from what is a safer environment for you to be in to place yourself in a worse one. You [...]

Keeping a Sterilized Environment

by Craig
During an outbreak, it’s vital that you keep your environment as sterilized as possible. Illnesses like Ebola can have an incubation period of days to weeks. This means that you or someone you care about may already be infected with it but show no symptoms. Keeping your living area sterile can help prevent you or a loved one from contracting the illness from each other. Many viruses - including Ebola - can live on surfaces for hours to days after they’ve been contaminated. For this reason, never assume that just because someone isn’t showing symptoms, they haven’t contaminated your environment. [...]

Protection Is a Must During a Pandemic

by Craig
You’ll need to be aware of any late breaking news in the event of a pandemic. Since you may not be able to count on society working the way it has, you’ll need to make sure that you have items that don’t rely on an electricity infrastructure to operate. Emergency broadcasts will still be done - even if society breaks down during a pandemic. So you’ll want to make sure that you have a solar powered radio. You’ll also want to make sure that you have solar powered flashlights and light sticks so that you can see in the event [...]

Safety and Protection in a Pandemic

by Craig
What you’re going to need after you have a plan to provide food, shelter and other basic needs for yourself and your family is to make sure that you have what you need to keep from getting the virus.

Steps to Quarantine Ebola Virus Patients

by Craig
Whenever someone who’s even suspected of having the Ebola virus much less showing symptoms shows up at the hospital, the staff there immediately takes steps to put that person into quarantine. Avoiding general public Once the person is put into quarantine, strict precautions are taken and that person is not allowed to mix with the general public for the safety of others. The medical staff doesn’t want that person causing another swell of infections to begin. That’s why it’s important that you have a quarantine plan already in place so that you’ll know which steps to follow to protect yourself. [...]

Opt for Isolation as Much as Possible

by Craig
One thing that the experts with this latest outbreak are trying to get people to grasp is that the Ebola virus spreads like wildfire, often outrunning any efforts to impede it because people with light symptoms are in contact with people who don’t have it yet. So it becomes a vicious cycle and it won’t end until the flow of people passing it to one another is somehow broken. But of course, the people who don’t have it, often get it because the infected ones don’t always know that they are infected. They keep on going about their daily life, [...]
