World braces as Coronavirus Spreads: First case in US Confirmed

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

First case of China-linked coronavirus reported in US, federal officials say

So it has been confirmed that the coronavirus recently spreading in China does transmit from human to human. The SARS-like virus has even scared Wall Street and as its often the case with these diseases it’s hard to say how bad it will get.

The sensible thing to do though is take another look at our preps and maybe fill a few of those hole we have left.

The CDC has some common sense advice to keep in mind.


There are currently no vaccines available to protect you against human coronavirus infection. You may be able to reduce your risk of infection by doing the following

-wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds

-avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands

– avoid close contact with people who are sick

If you have cold-like symptoms, you can help protect others by doing the following

stay home while you are sick

-avoid close contact with others

-cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands

-clean and disinfect objects and surfaces


There are no specific treatments for illnesses caused by human coronaviruses. Most people with common human coronavirus illness will recover on their own. However, you can do some things to relieve your symptoms

– take pain and fever medications (Caution: do not give Aspirin to children)

-use a room humidifier or take a hot shower to help ease a sore throat and cough

If you are mildly sick, you should drink plenty of liquids, stay home and rest.

If the virus spreads then take measures:

1)Avoid masses of people as much as possible, better yet, avoid people all together if things get REALLY bad.

2)Get yourself a respirator. We covered the importance of air many times before. If you need to interact with people, this is your first line of defense. Get a 10-pack N95 Respirators. If you cna, invest in one of these as well:

PD-100 Full Face Organic Vapor Respirator

3)Wash your hands often and disinfect them with alcohol based hand sanitizer after touching surfaces that may be infected.

4)Try not to touch you face, nose, eyes and mouth.

5) Have supplies so as to shelter in place for a long time if need.
