    What a bunch of fools. This is called ignorance. You still will get the virus when you need to search for more water so no point of stocking.

    A lot of people are trapped in the matrix. Letting everything on the news distract them from living their daily lives. Germs are everywhere. If you people did not know that by now then stop pretending you care just because you are now buying sanitizers.

    This is happening in Belgium too. I'm guessing all over the world. People are creating chaos, panic for what? (Tips down below)

    Here in Belgium, almost all masks, hand sanitizers are sold out, any left or that become available are sold at ridiculous prizes.
    Even dettol, bleach, … any product that claims to kill 99.9%.

    Those masks don't help unless someone would physically sneeze, cough straight in your face and even then.
    The virus is not in the air, it just settles on surfaces. So how do people get it? By touching the table, then their food, their face, lips et voilà.
    Yes people died and are still dying but no-one ever says anything about the flu that kills 1000 of people every year or any other disease, virus out there.

    How to prevent getting sick: First off, just use your logic sense and think. It ain't difficult. You just have to TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF:

    2 WAYS:
    1. HYGIENE: This should already be a personal habit to you, if not EW.
    First rule: Never touch food, your lips, face, someone else if you haven't washed your hands.

    – Wash your hands more frequently with water and soap. When you wake-up, after your toilet visit, before you eat, after you're done eating, when you touched an animal/pet, before you go to bed. Cold or warm water, it doesn't matter. Then dry off your hands thoroughly.

    Either with a normal towel that you change once or more a day, depending on how much you use it. Basically, if the towel becomes wet itself, time to change and wash them. Or you can use paper napkins that you throw away after each use if you want to spend the money which personally for me is a waste. Or you have those hand dryer appliances that dry your hands using forced air.

    – Clean your house more, like I said the virus settles itself on surfaces so mop the floor, clean the toilet(s) more, clean the tv, radio, computer, keyboards (Electronics always with a wet wipe, never with water), clean the tv remote, phones. EVERYTHING.

    – Change your clothes, bedding regulary and wash them.

    – Wash your food, anything that enters your house, car. Just add some water to your sink and a splash of vinegar, toss it around for a couple seconds, rinse and dry off.

    Lastly for this point, hand sanitizers are a great asset for hand hygiene But nothing beats washing your hands with water and soap.

    Believe me working in the medical field, we use hand sanitizers to move from patient to patient because of time limit, what's new?

    But after all the patients are done, we always wash our hands thoroughly.

    2. IMMUNE SYSTEM

    This after all is the BIGGEST FACTOR in all this. Cause your immune sytem is constantly fighting battles for you. It's front and center, the welcome mat in your body for all bacteria.
    It ain't a stigma, and you'll hate me for saying it but "YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT". Eat healthy and you will look it, feel it.
    WHY is that? You are providing your body with all the good stuff, the right nutrition. Eat crappy food and you will look it and feel it cause you will have several deficiencies. Because of those deficiencies, you create diseases and are more vulnerable for bacteria, viruses.

    – Eat more vegetables, fruits cause those are loaded with anti-oxidants that are going to nourish and protect your body.

    – Exercise helps build up your immune system and keeps it going.

    – Avoid dairy or any animals milk cause it creates slimes in your throat. I mean if you're sick, do you drink milk? I don't so why drink it after you're "healed". Secondly, we're human not an animal, not a cow, goat, donkey. If you want to drink milk then drink coconut milk, nut milk, soy milk.
    But animal milk is destined for the baby animals. Cause in the end, cows, goats, donkeys don't give milk unless they have given birth just like women. The animals milk ain't destined for us. I mean you don't see a cow, or other animal sucking on a woman her tits?

    – Eat more ginger, more garlic. Both have proven to be great immune boosters, garlic alone kills 61 diseases: like the flu, cold and more. There is an entire Dutch article written about it (https://www.hln.be/de-krant/look-kan-wel-61-ziektes-genezen~aa3c58f2/).
    Basically crush or chop the garlic and let it sit for at least 5-10 minutes in order to activate the enzym allicin.

    – Honey, not the store-bought cause that is pure sugar but RAW honey, just find a local honey vendor.

    – Drink tea

    – Supplements: I for one take almost all the products that bees create, so royal jelly and propolis. If you would just open your eyes and look at or better in nature you will find a plant, tree, flower, spice, herb, animal that will have the solution for your problem.

    Peace out! 😉

  • Reply Jeremy Letkomiller March 3, 2020 at 5:40 am

    Here's what I don't understand…why are people buying so much water?? Other items like toilet paper and paper towels etc make sense. Water bottles are for things like natural disasters when the water supply becomes contaminated…it's not like our water supplies will be contaminated if a lot of us fall ill. Also as a nurse I spend my days telling people that if we all just washed our hands more often on average the number of illnesses we ALL catch yearly would be decreased quite a bit. It's amazing how many people do not have basic hygiene habits. Now that this bug is out everyone is concerned about having alcohol hand rub and washing their hands when really this should just be standard protocol for all of us all the time to practice better hygiene!

    wasn't there a news outlet that faked the "hoarding" showing empty shelves, but in reality they got the supermarket to shove everything down.
