Doomsday Preppers tips to survive Covid-19
There is a community like animals that are preparing for winter who think hard to be ready for whatever life they'll be able to give. These are "preppers" – a word often used negatively unfairly – but these people could now have a moment and even last laugh in a lock-down mode all but the world.
Instead however, many preppers are sharing knowledge through social media rather than just locking themselves away until things hopefully improve. This is not new; many preppers have been warning that for years we have been facing such a crisis on YouTube, Instagram and other social media platforms. Unfortunately, the distribution of COVID-19 is growing rapidly.
Many people wonder if it is too late for materials to be stored?
Kris of City Prepping, who have over 323,000 subscribers on his YouTube network, warned that this is "not impossible, but certainly more difficult."
"People are actually washing stores, which creates chaos for many to try to get the basics," Kris said. "Either absolutely gone or on a back-order is the other traditional 'survival gear.'

The whole premise is that we should all be careful and that for a long time has meant that we have enough food , water and clothes to live. Although the "apocalypse" or anywhere else in the world is usually linked to preppers, that just isn't the case.
Even before the coronavirus outbreak this myth is something that preppers tried to dissolve through social media.
"I'm not getting ready for the world's end with a nuclear war, because I fear like it is difficult to survive" said David Armstrong, who has been talking on his YouTube Channel since 2011 about solar power, gardening, conservation of food and other homestablishing subjects.
"From a serious hurricane to economic depression, I am prepared for anything," Armstrong added.
Another major misconception is that all the planning is accumulating.
"It's the contrary, actually," Armstrong said. "People who plan to do this before the financial crisis so that they don't have to come out of practice after the crisis.
Rather as a preparer Armstrong stocked up on his supplies when no shortage existed-something he stressed in his videos prior to the outbreak-instead of worries about toilet paper supplies or filling grocery cards with cane products.
"They are not going to be out during the crisis those who were smart enough to prepare years ago," she said. "The preppers do not usually store up as they are prepared in a crisis."
Data Vs. Social Media Misinformation
The social media officers are now providing suggestions about what can really be done now as the clock will not be turned back. It provides tips about how you and your loved ones get sick, so you can assess the truth of fantasy and what to do.
Another of the biggest issues is that the news media can be as overloaded as other outlets, and that could generate disinformation across social media in particular.
Brad Harris, who has two YouTube channels including Full Speed Survival, and Off Grid With Brad and Kelly, said "Taking information from as many credible sources as you can and with this material, create a glimpse of the case as it unfolds."
Harris has dispelled more advice on his YouTube channels:"Take care that you don't gamble excessively, because any resident of the household gets ill by yourself or your family; using accessible safety equipment like a pulse oxymetre, a wireless or manual blood pressure mango, and a thermometer to track the your blood.
Harris said to his audience when it came to food purchases that these include canned fruits and vegetable products as well as dense calorie staples like rice, flour, gray meat and oats. "Anyone should make typical meal for the production of bread," he explained.
The best way to overcome COVID-19 is to avoid it, and preppers share their knowledge about the best ways to remain isolated.
"Stop it at this point and there just isn't any other way to avoid being part of the epidemic before a vaccine comes," City Prepping's Kris said. "It is a term which not many Americans are used to in these new days of prosperity. We have not had much interruption in the supply chain for a long while."
Besides being an instrument of information dissemination, social media can also be a good way of keeping everyone connected – not just beginners – in these difficult days, and possibly in the weeks to come.
"Please meet them if you have loved ones in solitude," Harris said. "Or though you only keep the telephone line open and watch a display from a distant location together, each participant in a contact that can not suit well-being."
They will potentially take the advice of preppers a bit more seriously in one year – hopefully fewer.
"When we confront a challenge beyond precedent, an epidemic that over the last 100 years, unlike anything in our history, we have to rely on the lessons our grandparents have been learning to make sure our families succeed in times of hardship," Harris said. "We have forgotten the hard-to-learn lessons our ancestors got during tough periods of their life by gathering food in plenty in periods of poverty to make sure our immediate friends and families remain well looked at."
