Pandemic Flu Kits
Prepare your family for possible flu, coronavirus, Ebola, or enterovirus pandemic outbreaks. A pandemic is a global disease outbreak that occurs when a new virus emerges for which people have little to no immunity and there is no vaccine. These diseases spread easily from person to person, causing serious illness, and can sweep across the country and around the world in a very short amount of time. There have been three pandemic outbreaks in the last 100 years, killing 800,000 people in the United States and over 50 million worldwide. Learn more on how to protect yourself below.
What to do during a pandemic
During an outbreak, reduce the risk of becoming infected or infecting others by avoiding crowded settings, washing your hands frequently with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, covering your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing, and properly discarding used tissues. Stockpile extra food and water in case you cannot get to the store or if they run out of supplies. If you must come in contact with a sick person, wear protective gear. The kits above will help to keep you and your family healthy.
