With the Zika virus this year, Ebola last year, and other viruses waiting to strike at any moment, deadly diseases are a problem that preppers could quite possibly need to deal with at any time. There are some things you need to know before preparing for surviving a deadly disease outbreak.
Surviving the Disease
If a deadly disease is spreading around the world, it goes without saying that the first thing you’ll want to do is avoid other people. A safe house that you can run to in the event of an outbreak is a good idea, so it’s good to have a plan in place for one. Once you’re in your safe house, it’s recommended that you don’t let anyone into your safe house at all costs — this can be indescribably difficult — as you may not be able to tell if they are infected or not.
Finally, be as sanitary as possible and have plenty of fresh water to do so. Other supplies — weapons, food, and water — are also essential for your survival, so it’s important to know how to procure these.
