Ebola Prevention in a Grid-Down World

by Erich

Hey guys, just wanted to quickly let you know about a document I found buried in the CDC website. It’s an older document (written in 1998) that provides an excellent resource for Ebola prevention in a time when modern medical facilities might not be available.

Originally written for healthcare workers fighting Viral Haemorrhagic Fevers (like Ebola) in austere conditions like West Africa, it deals with prevention, early diagnosis and response within a limited infrastructure (again, something we might face during an outbreak and associated civil collapse).

This would obviously be important knowledge to have and I wanted to make sure you guys have it.

Here’s some of the points it covers:

  • How to set up isolation precautions in rural areas.
  • How to use common, low-cost supplies to prevent transmission of Ebola
  • Necessary safety precautions
  • How to properly isolate (ie quarantine) potential and actual carriers of Ebola
  • Proper procedures for putting on and taking off protective clothing
  • Disinfection methods
  • Proper Ebola-contaminated waste disposal
  • Safe burial practices of deceased Ebola victims
  • How to make protective clothing with low-cost items
  • and much more…

This is a must have document that should be part of everyone’s Survival Library so be sure to download it here:

Good investigative work, thanks Erich. General info on stopping the spread of disease is a vital skill. Not just for Ebola, small pox, the Spanish flu, and a few others have taken their toll on the human population through out time. These principles will definitely transfer to any of those and a few hundred others. Thanks again.

Thanks for the find. Hopefully we can get ebola under control a little more. Fortunately I haven’t heard of as many recent cases as I did a few months ago.
