One cruel way the world could end is through a massive pandemic outbreak.
We would be left helpless and weakened in the face of imminent danger, since tackling a challenge while not feeling well is a heavy burden.
And knowing that bacteria have evolved into superbugs that are resilient to any kind of existing medication should give you enough reason to start preparing right now.
Recent studies estimate that superbugs will claim the lives of 10 million people a year by 2050.
This rising threat will cut through all defenses of Western medicine, leaving you with no safety net other than the one you will build yourself before anything of the sort occurs.
For this reason, I have compiled a detailed guide with things you’ll need to quarantine an infected area of your home and to secure the spread.
If the news outlets start trumpeting about a serious pandemic one day, the best place to face it is inside your home or bug out location.
If you have a remote place far from people and society, chances are that you will remain safe out there without having to take extra precaution measures other than the supplies you’ll have on hand.
However, if you’re living in an urban environment, then the best place to lie in wait is your home.
To turn it into a safe environment, you’ll first want to clean it thoroughly.
Then you will need a quarantine kit to make sure you can face any spontaneous or unwanted situation.
Here’s what you’ll need to survive:
2.Body suits and N95 masks
3.Disposable latex gloves
4.Strong high mill trash bags
5.Good quality disinfectant soap, bleach, and tools for scrubbing
7.Stiff plastic sheeting
8.Duct tape or painter’s tape
9.Cot that’s easy to clean
10.Water. At least 2 gallons per person for 7 days is advisable, although the more water you have stored the better.
11.Additional hydration and electrolyte sources, such as sports drinks, coconut water, sea salt, lemon, and so on.
If one of your loved ones gets sick, you’ll have to act on the spot to prevent the sickness from spreading.
For this, you’ll have to improvise a quarantine room. Ideally, the room should have a bathroom or should be the bathroom itself.
This will make the quarantine room be more efficient because the person suffering can vomit or have diarrhea, which can leave a mess and further spread the pandemic.
With the room ready, all it remains is to seal any openings (door, windows) with plastic sheeting and duct tape.
The next thing to have in mind is to keep the place tidy and to clean any mess that may arise.
You’ll want to wash clothing and bedding regularly, so water will play a key role in doing this.
Consider storing more water than you think you’ll need.
Although the power supply might hold during the crisis, the pandemic can affect everyone responsible for maintenance and could lead to a power outage.
If a person is sick, make sure to regularly clean the room surfaces and bleach the cot or bed if it has been used.
Make sure to wear the latex gloves whenever you’re doing this, and at the end throw everything inside the trash bags and seal them.
When it comes to a pandemic, germs will come in waves and you will need your entire arsenal to combat them, especially when it comes to superbugs.
Extremely resilient, these microorganisms will seek to make your life a living nightmare, that’s why you’ll need to fight them with alcohol, bleach, disinfectant, boiling water, and so on.
As long as you keep the place clean, hydrate enough and take your immune boosters, it’s very likely to win the battle.
To become more resilient in the wake of unexpected threats like these, you should already start to give your immunity a boost.
Increase fruit intake to give your body the vitamins it requires to flourish. Start doing exercises on a regular basis and get a few spoons of the natural supplements highlighted above.
There’s never too early to start fighting against pandemics and superbugs, only too late.
