Preventing the Spread of Influenza
Most people with influenza will be able to remain at home while they are sick. They can care for themselves or be cared for by others who live in the household. This information is intended to help people recognize the symptoms of influenza and care for ill people in the home, both during a typical influenza season and during an influenza pandemic.

Know the symptoms of influenza, which may include:
Sudden onset of illness, chills, headache, stuffy nose, feeling of weakness, fever higher than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit, cough, sore throat, and muscle aches. In children, symptoms may include diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain and/or feeling really tired.

Prevent the spread of illness in the home
Influenza viruses are spread from person to person primarily through sneezing and coughing. The virus may also be spread through contact with germs on the hands of a sick person or by touching objects or surfaces that have been touched by a sick person. For this reason, it is important to take steps to prevent the spread of influenza to others.   ---CONTINUED---

Preparing for the Coming Influenza Pandemic

Author: Dr. Grattan Woodson, MD, Decatur GA, edited by David Jodrey, PhD.

  (SNIP) ... It is certain that we will have another influenza pandemic, and probably soon. What is not known is whether the pandemic will be of the major variety resembling the 1918 flu, or a mi
nor one more like the 1958 flu pandemic.  My advice is to prepare for the worst and hope for the best.
 
The first few sections of this monograph deal with topics related to the influenza virus, with special attention on the 1918 Spanish Flu, which was the last major pandemic.  What happened then is the best source of information on what could happen now.  Given the extremely disruptive effect a major pandemic would have on society and essential services, several prudent suggestions are provided for you to consider taking before the pandemic sets in.  ---CONTINUED---

Becoming Self-Sufficient
http://www.planforpandemic.com/download/Becoming_Self-Sufficient1.pdf

Edited: January 29,2008 due to new document released on January 14, 2008

by Pandemic Flu Information Contributor “Dr Dave”
Revised January 14, 2008

INTRODUCTION
This is a pandemic planning guide for families. It contains a disturbing account of how an H5N1 influenza pandemic could impact your family's lifestyle, and it provides guidance for preventing a flu virus from infecting your loved ones. In addition, it addresses the requirements for living in relative comfort while the rest of society struggles to cope with supply chain failures, public service disruptions, food shortages, unemployment, civil disturbances, illness, suffering, and death on a global scale.

Over the last two years, Becoming Self-Sufficient has grown from a few disorganized notes into a motivational discussion of family survival. Although previous versions recommended that each family become self-sufficient for at least six months, this revision recommends at least one full year and it strongly encourages preparation for a second year. This change is due to a fuller understanding of the magnitude of the economic disruptions that will result from the next pandemic. Please bear in mind, however, that Becoming Self-Sufficient is not meant to be definitive, exhaustive, or equally applicable to every family's domestic circumstances, and it does not address the challenges of survival in a post-pandemic society. ---CONTINUED---
