Yes, WOW! That is why Albert made this Forum. We are trying to get people to stay in their homes when a pandemic hits. Some will live some will die but all who remain in their homes, have n95 masks when they go out, will have a better chance. It will happen when no one knows but I like many here on this forum try to prep to stay alive.
Always Be Prepared

Thanks, Kilt! I've followed the Clade X exercises and know people who participated. It was a very well-thought-out exercise, down to the type of virus selected (parainfluenza with Nipah genes, bioengineered etc.).

We cannot predict which virus will hit us in the future, but there will be one. It will likely be an emergent reassortment of avian and swine flu genes, much like the H1N1 that came around several years ago (our last true influenza pandemic).

I'm always watching and will let you all know if I hear anything. Be safe and make sure you get your routine vaccinations (including tetanus), if the SHTF, you won't be able to get those.

I attended a talk about the Spanish Flu a few weeks ago and learnt that there are 15 million masks sitting in a warehouse in Wellington in readiness for a pandemic. NZ has a population of 4.5 million and those masks won't last long. They have to be replaced every few hours when they become wet from moisture in the breath.
