This is a sign of the insane times we are living in. A friend of mine, Robert Atack of www.oilcrash.com penned a letter to his local newspapers, something he was willing to pay $391 for.
They turned him down!
Newspaper refuses to
publish paid message to the
citizens of Levin (NZ) on
protective measures against
Caronavirus will be in New Zealand now. There are unconfirmed reports of the first case being reported from Queenstown. It has up to a 14 day incubation period, but is contagious from day 1.
There isn't much we can do, except take a few personal precautions.
Local and national bureaucrats will be of little help. Basically, we are on our own.
Avoid crowds and close contact with people. Stay about a meter away from others.
They may have run out of N95-masks by now, If they haven’t, wear one and cover your eyes with goggles or large glasses because this virus also spreads through contact with the eyes.
Wash your hands regularly, and don't touch your face when out.
As there will be food shortages, we all need to stockpile at least 3 months worth. We could have a few months yet, so we don't need to panic, just gradually build up a supply.
Help your friends and neighbors.
The more food and resources we have in the community, the less panic we will see later.
