I follow her on twitter- she is advising to prepare now for shortages, store closings, office closings in the next 6-8 weeks. Get your supplies in!


To all the people who harassed me overnight & said I was peddling “fear porn” when I said in Jan we’ll call 911 & no one will come or we’ll be unable even to enter an ER, this is a #DC suburb, now. Ambulances waiting 8 HOURS to be able to drop a patient at ER. #STAYHOME
Listen to me. EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE AFFECTED BY #OMICRON. From modes of transportation to places you shop to places you get medical care to places you worship to places you learn. The public is not ready. Every single thing is going to be affected. Everything. Get ready.

I think it is a realistic scenario our "just in time" sciety may get very serious disrupted. Failing government communications, lack of leadership increase risks for mass panic. 

Some countries may only see regional crises-will have the means to compensate from less effected regions. Other countries could collapse-depending on foreign aid to get over the crisis.

Panic should be limited by in-time good communications, planning...to keep essentials (food/water, basic healthcare, security, energy) going. Since governments go for "denialism"; acting to little to late we may expect lots of crises.

Here in NL national cases now are (still slowly) going up. Limited travel, schools closed, a sort of limited lockdown and lots of boosters-with a majority of the population demanding government does MORE may have slowed down the crisis....

I think vaccinations/boosters limit the crisis-if not infection then severe disease and with that further increasing pressure on healthcare and society. 

Looking at South Africa it may be a short crisis-but SA has a young population in summer...Europe/North America missing both...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

You are forgetting that very few children have been vaccinated. The rise in hospital admiisions is greatest in this age group
