I was thinking about this over the last few days and wanted to try asking a general question purely to see how people on ATS tend to think in crisis
Rather than try a question that could be googled I have made up my own so nobody can cheat
Ill describe the hypothetical situation then ask the question. I would appreciate some honest answers and there is of course a correct one but that is
not the entire reason for me posting this.
Anyways without further blabbing ill get straight to it.
The government has declared a state of emergency worldwide.
All water that comes from shops, tap water, rivers, mountains, forrests, production facilities, plant life, livestock and underground water has been
infected with a virus that is only fatal to humans. The virus causes you to die within 10 hours of internal bleeding. Livestock only carries the virus
for 2 weeks as well as plant life. Chaos ensues as you would expect.
Ok, heres the question.
How would you get water for the next two weeks baring in mind all the contaminated sources?
I am interested to see how people answer and thanks in advance for replies. I hope I have covered the angles that I needed too with the sources and if
not I apologise and will correct it but it looks ok.
Mods if this is in the wrong topic I did not want to post it in the survival forum as it is more a topic rational and irrational thinking as opposed
to survival tips etc.
I will wait for a few answers before I say anymore.
