Are you panicking or getting prepared?
It seems to be the most prevelant prepper news at the moment. Almost every blog site is writing about it. So, why haven't I written about it...yet? Well, mostly because everyone else is. I haven't felt the need to jump in on it, until now. So, what is this of which I am speaking? The Coronovirus (COVID-19), of course!
I belong to a few prepper/survivor/homesteading groups on Facebook. A few of them are not allowing this topic to be discussed within their group! Why is that, you might ask? Well, mostly it seems to be because the group admins are afraid it will lead to fear mongering. While it's true that some people will or have over reacted to certain things, it's just as true that others will become afraid of those same things due to a lack of knowledge concerning them. Not only that, but the more we know about something the better prepared we can be to face it. It just doesn't make sense to me to not talk about it.
The first thing we need to know is exactly what the Coronovirus (COVID-19) is. Here's a link to the Center for Disease Control's website with lots of information about the Caronovirus; including prevention and treatment methods. Please take the time to read up on this virus for yourself; don't just depend upon the opinion of others as to what it is.
Not only do we need to be aware of exactly what this virus is, but we also need to realize that it is becoming a world wide problem. And while it's true there aren't as many cases here in the U.S. as there are in other parts of the world, we, as preppers, can learn from seeing what is and has been happening in those areas of the world that are affected by it the most. Why other Facebook group admins can't see this is beyond me. We need to know what it is, we need to know how to prevent it, and we need to know how to prepare for the possibility of it affecting us...whether directly or indirectly. That is where group discussion can help! It is my belief that when something is bothering us we need to talk about it. So, if you are worried about this latest virus outbreak then perhaps you need to talk about it.
So, I'm inviting you all to come on over to the Christian Prepper Gal Facebook Group to talk about it! It's a private group so only those who are members will be able to see what's being posted/discussed. You will have to ask to join the group and then answer the three easy questions to be considered eligible to join. It only takes a few moments to join. Let's discuss this and help one another to understand what it is and how to be prepared for this and other viruses and/or possible epidemics. Instead of panicking and being fearful, let's get informed and be ready!
Until next time...happy prepping, and God bless!
