just to let you people know, if you think you might want to go buy some surgical mask or n95 mask, the time is now!

my local walmart had 11 boxes of surgical mask last night and just 18 hours later they are all gone. my town has a modest population of 25,000 and i didnt think people were scared yet.

we dont even have any confirmed cases in iowa but people are starting to pay attention and starting to think, what if? a silent panic is upon us!

if you think you need to purchase anything to protect yourself or help you through a possible pandemic, you better get off you @ss and go now.

who knows when walmart might restock such an item . there were 4 boxes of n95 mask left , but im sure those will be gone asap.

just saying

An interesting report..

www.nytimes.com...


WASHINGTON — The Obama administration dispatched high-level officials from several agencies Monday to allay concerns about swine flu and to demonstrate that it was fully prepared to confront the outbreak even as the president said there was “not a cause for alarm.”


An important message buried in that report:



While experts praised the administration’s initial response, many warned that a more extensive outbreak of swine flu could tax the nation’s public health capabilities.

“If this gets worse, you’ll see the weakness of our system,” said Dr. Jeffrey P. Koplan, a former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “In an event like this, where everyone’s well-being is dependent on everyone else’s, we will both feel and see the problems our system creates.”

Dr. Irwin Redlener, director of the National Center for Disaster Preparedness at Columbia University, said federal officials reported six years ago that hospitals would need far more beds, ventilators and personal protective equipment to respond to a pandemic. Hospitals never got nearly enough extra equipment, Dr. Redlener said.

“We will pay a very heavy price for this if we get the big one,” he said.


It is a very good article and I highly suggest you read it if you have time.

I am in Iowa too and was at wal-mart yesterday and bought 5 packs. they looked at me kind of funny.
After my son goes to bed with his mom I will run out there and see if the have anymore. I live in a smaller town than you, bout 11,000 so they might have some. They also have masks in the Gardening section too.

That is an excellent idea. My sister told us late Wednesday evening that what she heard from connections in her job, we better get out and get masks. We found them at walmart, bought all the ones they had in stock, not to mention all the ones left at walgreens and all of the latex gloves there too. We have lots of cleaning supplies/disinfectants on hand from hurricane preps so we are set... And if we happen to not need these masks etc, we will have them for whenever!!

It's best to be prepared and presumed to be overly anxious rather than not ready!!

God bless us all!!

I was just watching CNN AC360 and across the bottom it said 6 deaths in Canada and 1 in Spain. I'm sure I read this right, but I will keep searching for a confirmation link. I didn't read the tread for the last couple hours, so I hope this isn't old news.

masks are ok. To be really safe you would need to filter out everything larger than 0.2 MICRONS. And those masks certainly do not filter to that level. But at any rate, its a comfort factor for a lot of people and it will stop respiratory droplets at least.

We need to stay away from buying 3-5 boxes of these respirators and face masks, buy what you need for a weeks worth and leave the rest. keep in the back of your mind over indulgence here, will be killing other families.

Again, I would invest in at least A BOX of nitrile or latex gloves.
