    WHO Says Planet Earth isn't prepared for pandemic?

    Sheesh, this falls in the "ain't we surprised."

    I don't know how many stories I've seen, or have been posted here on Timebomb related to the lack of physical infrastructure, beds, isolation rooms, trained medical people, supplies etc. etc. etc over the last five years or do. At some point, you would think that somebody, anybody in leadership positions, like the WHO, World Health Organization that issued this particular report would actually DO SOMETHING about the crisis they are highlighting. It merely confirms, reconfirms to Doomer Doug: YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN. The list is good.

    World Health Organization: The Globe Isn’t Ready For A World-Wide Pandemic

    The World Health Organization says that the chances of the globe suffering from a worldwide pandemic continue to increase. But along with the increased risk of a global outbreak is the fact that humanity is far from ready for it to happen.

    If a similar situation to the Spanish Influenza outbreak of 1918 occurred now, instead of 50 million deaths, over 80 million could die. A global catastrophe of that magnitude could wipe out 5% of the population. “The world is not prepared,” the report from the Global Preparedness Monitoring Board (GPMB), co-convened by the World Bank and the World Health Organization (WHO), warned.

    “For too long, we have allowed a cycle of panic and neglect when it comes to pandemics: we ramp up efforts when there is a serious threat, then quickly forget about them when the threat subsides. It is well past time to act.”

    How to Prepare Your Home (Quarantine) For A Pandemic

    While disease, epidemics, and pandemics have always existed, greater population density and the ability to travel anywhere in the world within 36 hours means disease can spread rapidly through a country and then go worldwide. The WHO report additionally warns that technological advancements can also provide the laboratory environments for new disease-causing microorganisms to be created, increasing the risk of a future global pandemic.

    “All parts of society and the international community have made progress in preparing to face health emergencies, but current efforts remain grossly insufficient,” the report said. The WHO called for world leaders to take seven concrete actions to lessen the risk, including monitoring progress during international summits, creating multi-year disaster plans, strengthening United Nations coordination, and building preparation systems across all sectors.

    But instead of relying on governments and the political ruling class to take care of you, why not prepare on your own? If you believe there’s a pandemic possible, perhaps instead of hoping there isn’t one, you should make sure you can survive.

    You’ll want to hunker down in your home as soon as possible and keep it as clean as possible to reduce the risk of getting sick. You should also build a “quarantine kit” or “pandemic survival kit” with some necessary items. These are the items you’ll want if you and your family stay home and are not ill, and the ones you’ll need if someone does become infected.

    Body Suits and N95 Masks
    Thick Plastic Sheeting (common at home improvement stores) and Duct tape or painters’ tape
    Simple and easy to clean cot
    Strong High Mil Trash Bags
    Hydration and Electrolyte Options (sports drinks or others)
    Immune Booster (pine needle tea, for example)
    High-quality disinfectant soap, bleach, and scrubbing tools
    8. Disposable latex gloves
    5-gallon bucket to act as a backup toilet (multiple would be preferred)
    Water – in this case, at least 2 gallons of water per person for up to 7 days if possible. More is better.

    Should a person get sick, you’ll need to create a “quarantine room” to care for that person while keeping everyone else safe.

    I went back to school a few years ago and we studied this in class and how bacteria evolves and becomes resistant. This is no joke. No, we are not prepared at all.

    The planet could use a good cleansing.

    Some people can be prepared for a pandemic, but given human nature and the fact you can't control all human behavior, you wind up with pandemics as much as because of how they are transmitted as you do because it is a new clade or whatever.

    Taking care of the resulting dead is an economical and logistical nightmare.

    My mom put together the sick room from what she had in the house. I can do the same. Betting a lot of millennials would be clueless due to lack of education and personal experience.

    I am also blessed in the fact I have access to:
    N 95 masks, (IMO square masks don't fit tight to the face are fashions tatements)
    goggles (eyes/mucus membrane/possible entry point for viruses)
    Sippy cups,
    bendy straws,
    plastic trash bags,
    plastic sheeting,
    absorbant puppy training pads,
    a cuff
    external use thermometer,
    Jello,
    etc.

    that make putting a sick room together safer and easier.

    The other thread is about Ebola in Tanzanika. Tanzanika is a major tourist hub and that means WHO is prepping us for further spread. Buy your gas masks now!!!!

    DD, you are mixing up the lake with the neighboring country (??). Lake Tanganyika does border Tanzania (Great Rift Valley). It is known among cichlid fish fanciers. Not sure those collectors will also be hugging corpses. But, yeah.... it might be more touristy than I had imagined.

    The problem with a good cleansing is you don't get to pick the ones you want to keep.

    There seem to be more and more bits of info about contagious illness creeping into the news here and there. Guess it's time to double check med and health preps.

    Though scary, at least they aren't trying to blow smoke up our rear ends by saying they have everything under control.

    If the next pandemic only wipes out 5% of the world population, that seems like a bargain compared to 1/3 like in the Spanish flu pandemic. They may be blowing smoke concerning numbers, Housecarl. Either way, SSTemplar is right, we don't get to chose which 5% (or more) goes.

    "If a similar situation to the Spanish Influenza outbreak of 1918 occurred now, instead of 50 million deaths, over 80 million could die. A global catastrophe of that magnitude could wipe out 5% of the population. “The world is not prepared,” the report from the Global Preparedness Monitoring Board (GPMB), co-convened by the World Bank and the World Health Organization (WHO), warned."


    The Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, the deadliest in history, infected an estimated 500 million people worldwide—about one-third of the planet's population—and killed an estimated 20 million to 50 million victims, including some 675,000 Americans.Oct 12, 2010
