ALERT! Coronavirus Infection via Packages / Mail

 The Coronavirus can infect people via packages and mail. (6 things you need to know)

Research studies show: 

1)  Coronaviruses like SARS can INFECT YOU up to 9 DAYS in a dried state.

2) The highest risk items would be those in mylar / plastic type envelopes or packing.

3) The same risks also apply to the items contained inside the packaging.

4)"However, its infectivity is reduced more rapidly if it is deposited on porous surfaces such as cotton or paper" 

5) Obviously, the faster the delivery and the closer one lives to the package sender the greater the risk.

6) There is a historic precedent of postal infection during the Spanish Flu Epidemic

EMERGENCY ACTION! Coronavirus Asymptomatic Countermeasures

Emergency Action countermeasures are required against the Wuhan Coronavirus as confirmed reports from Germany and Japan have documented the asymptomatic spread of the Pandemic Coronavirus. These reports substantiate Chinese governmental warnings on asymptomatic spread of the Wuhan Coronavirus. The nature of this asymptomatic spread is likely fomites such as fecal matter and other bodily fluids contaminating common objects/surfaces.

Protections from incidental physical contamination is paramount.


(1) For emergency and portable decontamination we are using PDI Prevantics skin wipes containing 3.15% chlorhexidine gluconate and 70% Isopropyl Alcohol (or similar products)
PDI Prevantics is both rapid and persistent for hours in its viricide capability

Skin Wipes 3% Chlorhexidine 70% Alcohol

(2) We are actively using Hibiclens 4% Chlorhexidine surgical scrub as a full strength lotion applied to the hands as a persistent long duration viricide. The Hibiclens Gallon Jug Refill is more cost effective, but we may also substitute the significantly less expensive and slightly weaker 2% veterinarian chlorhexidine soaps as conditions and shortages unfold. 2% is the minimum strength we would use.

Hibiclens Foaming Hand Pump 16oz
Hibiclens Gallon Jug
Chlorhexidine 2%

(3) We are using Germ-X Advanced 70% Ethanol hand sanitizer, as an inexpensive but very effective quick acting yet unfortunately short lived viricide.

GERM- X Advanced Hand Sanitizer 70% Alcohol

(4) We are also using Lysol-to-go 1 oz spray cans to disinfect shopping carts handles, public restrooms, etc.

Lysol-to-go 1oz Disinfectant Spray


(1) Our actions are focused on risk mitigation, based on available current knowledge of viricides and the potential impacts of the Wuhan Coronavirus.

(2) We do not make recommendations as to what other people should do or buy; we only offer insight to the things we are actually doing and spending money on.

(3) If you use the links above to purchase these item we will receive monetary compensation from Amazon, which in turn will help us buy more of these items.

WOW! US Gov Contract DOUBLED for Presidential Emergency Declaration

FEMA just DOUBLED a contract for 4 Billion Dollars in case of a Presidential Emergency Declaration. The contract was just let at the 1st of January and 15 days later something happened to make FEMA double the budget. The primary unplanned for situation that pops to mind during this time frame is the SARS-like outbreak coming from CHINA. Note this is just top of the Pyramid type spending; Billions and Billions more will have to be thrown at a major outbreak, fortunately most of that planning was already done in contracts tied the H7N9 influenza outbreak the fizzled several years back. Unfortunately the media is not reliable enough to accurately characterize the risk associated with this Coronavirus outbreak. Typically if the media and CDC is fomenting panic it is for clicks/views and budget increases. But if the media and CDC publicly underplay a disease risk it is because they fear a public panic will interfere with their planned actions. It is recognizing this latter situation that allows the astute observer to react prior to the herd of humanity stampeding. Often the best risk assessment can be garnered by looking at what the Government is contracting in reference to any particular situation. The fact that FEMA just had to DOUBLE its spending limit, just days after the settling a contract, for top level Presidential level disaster response is telling. Our initial assessment is that People will NOT be dropping like flies; that said, it takes very little to disturb the normalcy of a 1st World medical system. The SARS-like outbreak has the potential to shut down hospitals, dialysis clinics, and make normal medical treatment difficult to find. More people would be likely to die from being shut out of treatment for normally treatable chronic diseases than would from the SARS-like virus itself. More to follow: Sources:
