Diseases to Fear in the Aftermath of SHTF
This topic is very important and mostly gets overlooked. Prepare now because there will be no hospitals if SHTF.
Sorry if that sounded to harsh, but it’s true! If SHTF today, in a week or so people will be going crazy, they will be trying to get as much food and water together as they can, riots and havoc will be literally on your doorstep. Then after a few weeks, you will begin to notice the smells and the diseases SHTF brings with it!
Death is obviously going to be a big factor, with death comes disease and smell. The smell of death will bring in more diseases and so on and so on!… hospitals won’t stay open with out power and if we are honest, the doctors and professionals will have their own families to look after, so they won’t be sitting all comfortable at a hospital waiting for folks to come in to get treated, it will down to us.
It will all be about hygiene and keeping your self away from the sick. A lot of the time, people think hunger and the lack of water will kill first!… that is true to some extent but once a disease sets in a town, chances are if you are not prepared, you will die!
I found a great article that goes over some disease to prepare for and obviously no one is water diseases ….then you have animals and insects to worry about! Read more….
