The goal of government officials is “Don’t panic the masses”, but it’s obvious the health officials have dropped the ball with the early stages of the Ebola crises. It wasn’t supposed to come to America, but now it’s here. They tell us not to worry, that they have it all under control. They said health officials, doctors and hospitals were all trained and equipped to handle any Ebola cases, but we’ve already seen how the first case was handled. And now, two of the health care workers for that case have Ebola.
Ebola slipped right through the cracks right from the start. And the problem is not going away. In fact, some experts are predicting that Ebola will become America’s newest pandemic. And what’s worse, is that most people are ill informed and unprepared for dealing with a pandemic, or they choose to stay in denial about the situation.
Everyone should be prepared with the basics of water, food, necessary medications and protection kits. You will need these kits if hot zones develop near you.
These hot zones will have contagious as well as deadly diseases. And Ebola falls into that category. One of the best protection kits to have is the Official Department of Defense Pandemic Flu Preparedness and Protection Kit that was created by the military for the military.
This kit is top quality and designed to keep you safer compared to other kits.
What’s in the kit?
- 4 surgical masks
- 2 respirators
- hand sanitizer
- information card with guidelines about contamination
- carry along bag
Both the masks and the respirators meet particle restriction safety measures. The hand sanitizer is one of the key factors in prevention. It’s difficult not to touch surfaces and public places are teeming with possible contaminants.
Children can’t help but touch things and then touch their eyes, nose or mouths—all entry points for the Ebola virus.
The current CDC statements about Ebola say it can live for some time on surfaces. Keep in mind though—these same health officials don’t want to cause a panic, so we are possibly getting a watered down version of Ebola facts.
The kit comes with a carry bag and is perfect for home, vehicle, college dorms and public places where pathogens are easily shared.
