Nothing dramatic has happened today to report but all the reports continue to suggest cases of flu are still growing world wide. We still have time to do some preparing in case there is a dramatic change in the next few days. In my December 12, 2008 post I talked about identifying those who may need your help in the event a quarantine is ordered. This is a good time to consider those people and develop a plan for their care. As a reminder here is a portion of the post:
“Determine who among you is at greatest risk of death during a pandemic. These are the people you may need to emphasize in your preparation, as they may not be able to plan for and care for themselves. According to The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services this would include:
A. The economically disadvantaged (having little or no money to stockpile food and supplies),
B. Those without a social network (many children, the homeless, those geographically separated from family including transient workers and elderly),
C. Dependent individuals needing support for daily activities (physically disabled, developmentally disabled, mental illness, substance abuse or addiction, difficulty seeing or hearing, and other medical conditions),
D. Those with trouble reading, speaking or understanding English.”
If you know people in any of these situations take a critical look at your preparations and determine if you have enough to care for them also.
