Since CoVid-19 or Wuhan Coronavirus has hit the scenes I’ve found myself having to dispel myths and common mainstream media “don’t panic” news reports in order to help family and friends be properly prepared for what COULD becoming. I’ve frequently needed to answer these questions and decided to share them here to create a single point of reference for referring people to have their questions answered and help them properly prepare. Feel free to share with your friends and family, I’ll be updating this as things change and adding references as I have time.

Here are some of the most commonly asked questions about COVID-19:
Last updated on February 18th, 2020
Q: Hasn’t this been around for years?
- While CoronaVirus family has existed for years… CoVid19 has NOT been around years (think regular Flu vs Spanish Flu)… it’s actually got very suspicious signs of being modified bioweapon (CRISPR Gene splicing artifacts, HIV RNA inserts, etc), this strain only has been around since Nov/Oct AT THE LATEST…
- Humans have no immunity to this virus family it’s primarily affected wild animals in the past… we’re able to fight off new Flu viruses such as H1N1 more effectively because our bodies have seen similar viruses before.
Q: But the Flu kills more people right?
- The Flu has a kill rate of 0.1% This conservatively is 2%, likely as high as 10-15% once we have more than 2 months of data. Yes, the Flu has “killed more people” but the Flu is WORLDWIDE infecting billions of people a year this has inflected at most 100k-200k so far…
- There’s something called R0 (R-naught) that is a rate on transmissivity of viruses, the flu has a 1.28 R0 meaning every 1 person that gets it on average spreads to 1.28 other people… CoVid19 has a 4-6 R0 based on current data, meaning it spreads to 4-6 people for each person infected… the math on that is ASTOUNDING… after 10 hops instead of 15… 15… people being infected with the Flu… CoVid19 would have over 30,000 people infected… when the media compares Flu to CoVid19 they’re comparing 15 people to 30,000 and 0.1% death rate to 20-30x higher death rate of 2-3% (at a minimum). They’re trying to prevent panic but they’re also preventing people from taking basic responsibility for their own safety and well being…
Q: Big Pharma will save us with a Vaccine!?
- Likely hood of a vaccine that works near term is extremely low, they’ve never successfully created a vaccine for any other viruses in the coronavirus family… The vaccines tested in the past for similar viruses have resulted in the body reacting similarly to the real virus creating cytokine storms and killing subjects.
There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this disease.Center for Disease Control and Prevention
Q: So… How is this going to affect me then?
- Quarantines: The likely hood of Quarantines coming are high, for the first time in 100 years the US has forcibly quarantined more than a few people at once already. DOD has officially started building quarantine facilities near major airports. A responsible person would be prepared to shelter at home for anywhere from a few weeks to a few months.
- Economic and Supply chain disruptions: Don’t count on being able to always get instantly any of the “Just in Time” delivery items we take for granted now… There is at least a 5-9 day life span of CoVid19 on surfaces and possibly as high as 24 days. Packages coming from overseas may soon have quarantine periods or decontamination processes they must go through.
Q: What are the signs and symptoms of CoVid-19?
- Symptoms CoVid-19 can present itself as mild to severe. The most common signs could include respiratory and breathing difficulties, fever, cough, and shortness of breath. In more severe cases, it can even lead to pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and even death.
Q: Is CoVid-19 unstoppable at this point?
Peak Prosperity explains this best in the video below:
Basic Preparations are simple… in order of importance (IMHO)
- 30-180 days of food bought ahead of time… just stock up on non-perishables you would eat normally and won’t waste… plan for some variety and flexibility.
- Water bottles (30 days+) & Water Filters for filtering drinking water if needed
- Basic medical supplies – you won’t want to go to the doctor unless you have CoVid19
- Treat at home supplies for Flu symptoms – Robitussin DM, Ibuprofen, Tylenol, etc
- N95/99/100 Masks, Goggles ( swim/etc work ), Gloves
- Minimal Supplements: Liposomal Vitamin C (3 grams per day), Elderberry (clinical studies showing a reduction in the intensity of Flu), Chaga (from fruiting bodies – anecdotal reports of helping with symptoms and some clinical evidence regular to HIV similarities)
- Hand sanitizer, Tarps, Plastic sheets, Duct tape
- A broad range of Supplements: Essential Oils, Full Vitamin range, C60, NMN, Emergen-C
- Cash on hand, Silver coins (pre-1964 quarters work great)
- Guns… plenty of ammo…
- Animal necessities… stock of Dog Food, Cat Food, etc
- Additional bulk water storage… Tub Water storage bags, Water Bricks, Stackable Water Tanks

I read something very interesting. If you were in a situation and find yourself in need of antibiotics and are unable to get ahold of some, this article amongst others suggests pet antibiotics.
People claim they are cheap, easy to get and said to be as effective. We are not saying to run out and get pet antibiotics to take for infections. We are simply sharing information and options with you.
Q. How is the virus spread?
CoVid19 spreads mainly from person-to-person. This can happen in a few ways. The main source of transmission is between people who are in close contact or within 6 feet of each other. If an infected person coughs or sneezes, the respiratory droplets can land in noses, mouths, eyes or on the skin of another person and can easily be transmitted or spread.
Spread by contact with infected surfaces
It is possible for a person to get COVID-19 by touching a surface that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes. It is important that people who do not have the virus also wash their hands often. We are constantly touching our faces, rubbing out eyes and touching other people and objects.
Q. Can you prevent CoVid19 from spreading in my home and community?
Yes! If you or someone you know has been confirmed or even suspicious of having CoVid19, there are things you can do to contain it. If home care is what you prefer, you should isolate yourself right away. Go ahead and have an isolation plan ready so you don’t have to go out and shop for the things you need while infected.
Isolation means DO NOT GO ANYWHERE. Separate yourself (or the infected person) in a room separate from everyone else in the home. This also includes using a separate bathroom from everyone else.
If you have to go to the doctor, make sure you call first and let them know you have the virus so they can take precautions prior to your appointment to make sure no one else gets infected.
Wear a facemask if you do have to go out or if a family member has to see you while in isolation. In that case, they need to wear one as well.
Use a tissue when you cough or sneeze then throw it in the trash immediately then wash your hands for 20 seconds.
This goes without saying but please do not share personal items while in isolation. This includes hairbrushes, drinking glasses, pens, utensils, pillows, etc. Use hand sanitizer or wash all personal items after use.
Since you will be alone, make sure you are paying attention to your body. Monitor your temperature, breathing, or if you feel your situation is getting worse, contact your doctor immediately.
To end isolation, make an appointment with your doctor to confirm you are no longer infected with CoVid19.
The family of the person infected should closely monitor their own symptoms to make sure they were not infected.
We would love to answer your questions!
