Prepper News Watch for October 16, 2014

While the panic grows over Ebola, yellow fever mosquitoes, which can transmit dengue, chikungunya, and yellow fever itself, have been found in the Los Angeles area. It’s a grim reminder we are facing more than one potential scenario, so don’t get blindsided because you’re too focused on a single issue.

Everyone is making a big deal about becoming infected while wearing PPE, but everyone is also overlooking that unless your PPE provides 100% coverage, you’re not protected. Case in point: Watch this video about the “Ebola kits” that “UCLA Infectious Disease Experts” have assembled. Notice how there is no protection for the top and back of the … Continue reading
