We Should All Become Preppers

Even as states move ahead with plans to reopen their economies, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned Tuesday that a second wave of the novel coronavirus will be far more dire because it is likely to coincide with the start of flu season.

“There’s a possibility that the assault of the virus on our nation next winter will actually be even more difficult than the one we just went through,” CDC Director Robert Redfield said in an interview with The Washington Post. “And when I’ve said this to others, they kind of put their head back, they don’t understand what I mean.”

“We’re going to have the flu epidemic and the coronavirus epidemic at the same time,” he said.
...
If the first wave of the coronavirus outbreak and flu season had peaked at the same time, he said, “it could have been really, really, really, really difficult in terms of health capacity.”

During the 2009 H1N1 swine flu pandemic, the United States experienced the first wave of cases in the spring, followed by a second, larger wave in the fall and winter, during flu season.
The same thing happened during the Great Flu Pandemic of 1918. The first round was bad, but the second round was a global holocaust.

Prudent people will get ready. If you've been stocking food, make sure that you rotate them as you buy new items.

Smart move to scoop up a little of the inevitable oversupply of wipes and masks in July or August too.

Shelf stable food and the like plus general supplies needed for a longer stay in.

It will likely be a 1918 thing again and all those "you can't tell me to stay at home" folk will either die or be locked up as typhoid Mary's.

Get ammo when you can.

And something from which to shoot it.

Ammo won’t protect you from getting infected. How can you target a virus?

DA, I'm watching you.
