I think that all makes sense, other than our Just in Time inventory systems in most stores. They are all set up for some set number of interactions per day. You get panic runs, and transportation won't be able to keep up.

If your average moron US resident would listen to even the bare minimum numbers the federal government puts out with 72 hours of food and water, there would likely be a good enough buffer to allow transportation to catch up to demand spike, or to allow the fed.gov to show up with MREs and water. But we have only to look at Hurricane Katrina to see how prepared people are to go even a day without a grocery store.

I've messaged several of my friends this weekend to get ready and have food on hand for at least a few weeks, all of the responses were "for what?"  Face Palm!
One of my friends, probably the smartest person I've ever met, responded 'LOLFLu' at first, I told him to google 'covid-19', 10 minutes later I got a reply back 'oh *expletive deleted*it.'

I did notice that some of the long shelf life food was showing long deliveries on Amazon.  Not all of it, but some, especially the all-in-one type packages.

I haven't heard anyone around me talking about the virus, not even family.  Some of that is there isn't much we can do about it.

I've started laying in more canned goods... Soup, beans, tomatos, etc. Also laying in and freezing things like chicken and ground turkey.

We have... wait, I can't say tons, that might be taken literally in this group.... LOTS of canned goods. Probably not enough currently, but a few trips to ALDI and we should be fine.

Additionally, I always like to have at least a 10lb bag of rice in reserve, while we go through the 5lb jar in the kitchen.

I could probably get a few more dried beans. I think we only have 5 or 6 lbs of that.

We also have the 25 year shelf-life foods. One entire pantry shelf of those. That's at least one month of food there. Lots more if used in conjunction with other foods.

Our freezer (which I had to clear out late last year because the door had been left barely open for a few days and thawed nearly everything... THANKFULLY the bacon was on the bottom and remained frozen) is pretty well stocked. I think we've got 10lbs of hamburger, 15 lbs pork loin, unknown lbs of fish (probably over 10, though), and lots of miscellaneous other items (a few porkchops, some roast, a chicken, etc...)

I would like to get some more of the UHT Milk. We're down to one quart. I'd like to have at least 3 gallons.

Yeah, you're not prepping for the Corona virus... you're prepping for the apocalypse.

And, don't you know, that since this virus originated in Asia, by keeping rice on hand as an emergency provision just proves that you're a racist bastard?

Given the amount of meat (mostly chicken, turkey, albacore and lamb) in my freezer I think I can stay fed for quite a while.  More salt and even if power goes out for a long time and I can still stay fed (though water becomes an issue with no power).  Some extra rice and veggies and we could stay healthy for a long time if things get bad.

The Iranian death rate is very high. Iĺm not sure if that is due to quality of care, a demographic difference in who was infected, a statistical anomaly, or if they are only detecting the most severe cases. Regardless, they are at almost a 17% death rate at the moment.

I'm surprised you guys haven't figured it out.

The reason the Kung Flu isn't ripping through the United States is because the Government's Chemtrails program has been distributing a vaccine for the past 2 months. I heard it from a guy on the interwebs, so it must be true.

I probably have 150# frozen meat, kind of low in the bacon department with just 6#. I do need to get rice and canned veggies/other canned stuff. .

20% infected require intensive care treatment, 5% require a ventilator while in intensive care. Without a solid healthcare system, most of those will die.

I meant to post this yesterday.  I got some advice on prepping.  Get a decent supply of bleach and vinegar.  10% bleach solution to clean countertops and other surfaces.  Vinegar solution to soak or wash fruits and vegetables after you buy them.  It was something I wasn't thinking about so I thought I would pass it on.

^^^^^ Note that when using bleach, dwell time, PPE, pre-cleaning of surfaces to be disinfected, and using fresh solutions are key.  When doing infection control in healthcare environments, dwell time is usually the failure point.

I was shopping Sunday evening, and noticed their supply of bleach had already been cleaned out.

I'll have to check Costco the next time I'm there to see what their stock looks like. I don't need any because it's one place where Costco quantities are a great deal. I buy the three pack of bleach jugs and the two pack of vinegar jugs and am set for most of a year. Longer with the bleach because I use the vinegar for tons of stuff.

A couple of interesting points from link #2:

Quote
ôWe increasingly find it hard to believe that USA cases are as low as reported, and believe that given the flow of Chinese, Korean and Iranian nationals into North America, a large USA community-based outbreak is increasingly likely,ö Powell wrote.

We don't think about the US government hiding numbers the way the Chinese and Iranians might, but???

Also, somehow this Powell guy managed to get in a, "Trump will spread the virus more." Nice.

Yeah, I'm taking this seriously now.

I just put the finishing touches on a list of stuff I'm going to start laying in now, with the intention of having a 2 to 4 week supply of food just in case the Kung really hits the Flu.

Main emphasis will be on durable foods -- dried beans, rice, pasta, canned soup, vegetables, jarred pasta sauce, oatmeal, canned/bagged meat (Spam and tuna, mainly) and peanut butter.

I'm also going to lay in several additional pounds each of pork, chicken, and ground turkey in the deep freeze.

And, my local grocery has bottled water on sale right now, so I'm going to pick up a couple of flats of that.

I need to do the same thing for Seren, as well.

Oh, I forgot about the 15+ boxes of mac n cheese we have.

I need to check how much pasta we have. I tend to stockpile and then whittle down. I think we're low. We do have 6-8 jars of pasta sauce, each one good for about 2 meals.

For those interested in shelf-stable milk, Dollar Tree carries it for $1 per quart. (I'll be picking more up this week.)

I normally don't use milk, but I may pick up a quart just to have something for my coffee. Can you leave it out after it's opened or do you have to refrigerate it?
