Coronavirus Quarantines Are Coming, What to Stock Up on Now Before It’s Too Late

This is not hype, this is not hysteria, this is the cold hard truth and the reality that we now find ourselves in, quarantines, restrictions, travel bans are coming to North America, to the World and if you don’t prepare now, you may be horribly caught off guard in regards to what is coming next.

I have been working in the financial industry for over a decade, with my specialty being geopolitics, political upheaval and precious metals.

This has led me to learn first hand about what can unfold during various forms of panic, collapse and general unrest. Unfortunately, we are about to enter into one of these periods of time.

Those who are tuned into the zeitgeist of what is unfolding have already been preparing, have already stocked up and will generally weather the coming storm without any financial or personally ramifications.

You too can do so and will likely make it through to the other side largely unscathed, however, your window of opportunity is sadly running out rapidly.

If you have not prepared in any way, shape or form, you need to do so as soon as possible. You may have less than a week to act.

At the very least, ensure you have the following;

  • Cash, 2–4 weeks worth.
  • Ensure your vehicles are fully fueled, with an additional refill in a Jerrycan.
  • Any vital prescriptions, get them filled now.
  • Food supply, 2–4 weeks worth.
  • Food for you pets (if you have any).
  • Water supply, 2–4 weeks worth.
  • Over the counter medications (mild cases of coronavirus are similar to a cold).
  • Personal protection.

For food specifically, buy canned goods, or other items that have a long self life and that you would consume regardless of whether there was a crisis unfolding or not, resulting in no financial loss to you, if they are not required in the immediate to short term.

Fortunately, unlike a natural disaster, this crisis is likely to hit our supply chain only, with our power grid, internet and other forms of vital communication remaining intact and fully functional.

In a natural disaster, the above list would be greatly expanded and include many other items that would become invaluable in crisis, such as batteries, forms of fuel, lighters, etc.

You would be shocked to learn how much these items are worth in a true economic collapse.

Still, the risks of this turning south quickly are still very real and pose a significant risk to our societies in the West, if people do not act rationally and prepare themselves accordingly, while they still have time to do so.

Sadly, many people will do nothing and be caught completely off guard, under a possible quarantine situation, without the required goods they need to sustain themselves, or like so many others, simply don’t have the access to funds that are needed to stock up on supplies. To the latter people, my heart truly does goes out to you.

This is where the government is going to have to come to the rescue and you can rest assured that relief and aid programs are already being put into place behind the scenes.

Still, you do not want to be a victim, you do not want to be reliant on these programs, as they will be potentially overrun and taxed beyond their abilities, especially when you could of helped yourself, freeing up vital resources for those who could not take action, who could not help themselves, even if they wanted to.

Prepare now. Do your part. Persevere, prosper and above all else, stay safe.
