As is to be expected, the Connecticut Survivalist Alliance (CSA) has been bombarded with Swine Flu information this weekend. The influx of information has gone off the scale after the Meccachurian's administration declares a public health emergency.
The biggest fear from members and affiliates isn't the Swine Flu.
It's the government's reaction to it that worries most.
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Head Janet Napolitano says that now that the Meccachurian's administration has declared a public health emergency,
She says DHS can now free up resources to deal with the Swine Flu.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC),
has warned that officials "cannot contain the spread of this virus."
The CSA is already getting reports of mass plans including quarantines, school closures, tightened rules on pork imports and tested airline passengers for fevers.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says that,
"Right now we don't think the facts warrant more active testing or screening of passengers coming in from Mexico".
Doesn't she make you feel safe and secure?
Glad she freed up those resources!
Several individuals did notice that this outbreak coincided with a suspected theft of disease samples from biolabs at Fort Detrick.
The White House homeland-security adviser, John Brennan,
says that there is “no evidence whatsoever” of bioterrorism in this "outbreak".
Common Sense for Flu
Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
Influenza is thought to spread mainly through person-to-person contact by coughing or sneezing by the infected people.
Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze.
Alcohol-based hands cleaners are also effective.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way.
If you get sick, stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them.
Remember to take your vitamins and wash your hands.
Stay as healthy as possible. Get sleep and keep your self well hydrated.
This will help keep the flu from taking hold and allow your body the strength it needs to fight it.
Make sure you have food and water for a prolonged stay in the house.
