As a person who has always taken preparedness and disaster study seriously, the topic of surviving pandemics has both intrigued and frightened me to my core. Pandemics are unrelenting and have the ability to create a pivotal life moment. These large-scale outbreaks of infectious disease cause significant economic, social, and political disruption in its wake.
I wrote the book, The Coronavirus Preparedness Handbook: How to Protect Your Home, School, Workplace, and Community from a Deadly Pandemic. because this subject is so vast that it needs to be explored in full. It is vital that each of you know what you are up against – an extremely contagious virus that is hellbent on surviving no matter what. This will not go away on its own and will continue to threaten our economy, our food supply chain, our communities, and our health. Now that the contagion is out there, there is no denying that it is time to take the appropriate steps needed to keep your family healthy and safe.
By no means am I a virologist, but I am a long-time preparedness writer and have studied for over a decade how our society reacts in times of disasters and the COVID-19 pandemic has only reinforced what I have long suspected: in times of extreme disasters a majority of the population will be complacent, deny the situation, expect the local, state and federal government to take care of them, panic, and eventually shame others for having the foresight to prepare.
How This Book Will Help
Many may think it is too late to prepare because it is already spread and in our communities, but what you may not realize is experts say the second wave may be coming and unless we have a vaccine when it hits, it could be significantly farther reaching than the first.
This book goes beyond basic handwashing and social distancing protocols suggested by the CDC. This book will explain the strategies that the CDC is using to measure the progression of COVID-19. We will look at historic pandemics and learn from them in order to help your family stay ahead of what is to come and help you develop a personalized preparedness plan that can be implemented quickly. The best piece of advice this author can give you is start preparing now before the panic ensues and that starts with understanding the disaster. We have all seen how quickly critical items for living like food, water, medicine, and sanitation items have disappeared once the virus infiltrated our communities. Can you imagine the pandemonium that will occur during the next wave?
It is important to know what we are facing in terms of lifestyle changes, whether there will be economic turmoil, and ultimately, how to keep our families healthy. It is a global concern that a quick-moving pathogen has the potential to kill tens of millions of people, disrupt economies and destabilize national security. And as we have seen throughout history, viruses will never go away. They will only continue to find ways to infect and spread. Just as our will is to survive, so is theirs’.

During these difficult times, we must stay strong, resilient and continue trying to make this killer virus obsolete.
