Most people probably realized that it was just a matter of time before the first case of Ebola was diagnosed and announced in this country. But just the fact that it has happened is enough to make your stomach tie up in knots, isn't it? And then the spread, changes and fatality from the Enterovirus are another cause for concern.
This seemed to be a good day to share some more headlines. Do your own research as well. There are many things happening out there that may show up on your doorstep, like it or not, prepared or not. It's a good time to review your preps and fill in any holes you find. If you are not in a homestead or retreat location, it would also be a good time to review your exit plan. The example of medical martial law that we had the advantage of observing from across the ocean, is definitely something to take into account. Are you ready for that?
We had a couple of posts involving Ebola and health issues a short while back that I am going to link back to. One of them covered extensive steps to take if you need to quarantine your home to protect your family from contagions. There are many supplies and things to consider, and this article, although lengthy, covers it very well.
Ladies and Gentlemen, we have the best medical system on the planet. We have things here that other countries can't even imagine. There is some criticism right now about our medical services and their short comings. With the recent introduction of "Obama Care" there is both positive and negative criticism. But that does not change the fact that we have the best medical care available to mankind in this country.
As you are aware, the system inside this country has had a deadly virus introduced into our advanced medical system. A few days to a few weeks from now, we will know the results of this one man with Ebola. Everything maybe hunky-dory, and this will just have been a scare on the radar. But there is also a possibility that things are not going to be hunky-dory, and this may be the beginning of a major infestation of our country. Only time will tell. During this time period, you might want to seriously evaluate or re-evaluate your family's medical preparedness plan. There are some times you don't get a second chance. Give it some thought, because this virus travels at the speed of a jet. It might be a good time for a family chit-chat. It's a good time to prepare. Seriously. If it passes. Great. If it doesn't, then it doesn't. That oil light on your engine, tells you something. It's blinking red right now.
