Chinese Wuhan Corona Virus

Man Wearing Face Mask
The headline reads:
THIRD Chinese city is put in lock down as experts warn deadly corona virus outbreak is MUTATING - as Singapore becomes the eighth country to confirm case.

Go to this URL for the story.

I have been following this outbreak because of my age. I consider myself to be a healthy 76 year old guy but I sure don't want to test that consideration!

Some Family History

I was talking about this with my wife and she mentioned her grandfather who died from the Spanish flu. He was a healthy young farmer who one morning told his family he was not feeling very good and had a bad cold. He died the next morning, My wife's father told the story and almost cried as the death of his father left the family with 6 kids. Time were tough in 1918 and was very hard on his mother.

The Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, which was the deadliest in history, infected an estimated 500 million people worldwide. At this time was about one-third of the planet's population. The Spanish flu killed an estimated 20 million to 50 million people., Some 675,000 Americans died from it. Of those infected 10% to 20% died. With about a third of the world population infected, this case-fatality ratio means 3% to 6% of the entire global population died.

Here is a URL for taking care of your family from your government. While the PDF is about flu, it has some good ideas.

The Ice Age Farmer also has a YouTube video on the  Corona virus at this URL.

As always this is a good reason to be prepared with food and water. My wife and I both come from a back ground of farmers. Not that we were, but our family was. When you lived out in the country, you couldn't just pop into town to get some food like most of us do now. The farmers pantry was out of necessity well stocked. My wife laughed and remarked that she could easily feed both of us for 6 months or more from our pantry.

Here is a suggestion that you might think about, and that is wearing a face mask when you have to go out among large collections of people. I am ordering some just in case the above Corona virus gets bad here in the US. Here is what I am ordering at this URL, and is from my Amazon Store.

Hopefully this new virus will not be as bad as the fear porn sites are stating, but it's always best to be prepared. So if you want tons of info on getting ready for a pandemic head over to this site at this URL. It's from the  Massachusetts Nurses Association (MNA). Cool site!

That's all for this blog. Take care, and continue to watch developments on the Corona virus. Hopefully it wont be all that bad.

Look after your family, friends and neighbors
Take care of the poor who have less than you do.

I have updated and enlarged the Surviving the Super Grand Solar Minimum book. I also have the SGSM book and three others at this URL. They all come in a PDF format.

I am plan to keep the paperback book (older version) which was very popular at Amazon at this URL for a bit longer. Its a great book to pass out.

Need Seeds? Yes You Will!

These are my two of my recommended seed suppliers at this URL

All the equipment in my store is used personally by me or recommended by me.

I eat an all plant diet and have for about a year. I am now 77 and have as much energy as I did when I was much younger. This book (PDF) is free. To get this Book go HERE.
