Prepper News Watch for October 20, 2014

Prepper News Watch

Many websites are still propagating the “this virus is different” fear angle. It’s not different, or at least, not different in any significant way. Sure, it *could* go airborne, but it is not airborne now. How do we know? Simply by looking at the number of new cases. If Ebola became airborne, there would be a dramatic spike in new cases and it would quickly become uncontrollable. We are not seeing that.

In fact, there is evidence this Ebola outbreak is starting to end. Compare the maps in these two WHO documents for September 18, 2014 and October 17, 2014. We are beginning to see the number of new cases subside and we can only hope that this trend continues. If we were looking at the start to a new global deadly pandemic, this is not what we would be seeing. Stop listening to the fear mongers, they’re only trying to sell you something.

As preppers, we need to ensure we take the proper precautions to safeguard our families. We do this through physical and mental preparations. This includes knowing the facts and staying on top of current – and accurate – information.

Get Ready. Be Prepared.
