Leading researchers have indicated that the bird flu virus is now just one mutation away from changing into a form that can be easily transmitted among humans. Once the virus mutates into an airborne form, there may be very little warning that a pandemic has begun. An airborne strain of the H5N1 virus would have the ability to spread across the globe in mere days.
Experts feel that this new super-influenza strain could transform the world into a situation resembling the New Orleans catastrophe. All deliveries to stores, restaurants and gas stations would immediately cease because people would either be too sick or too scared to attend their jobs. This could cause enormous shortages in a matter of days. As seen during The Spanish Flu of 1918, people may face potential starvation in their homes.
In addition, people who depend on prescription medications will not be able to obtain refills as all deliveries to pharmacies will stop.
The best way to survive a Bird Flu pandemic, which could have a mortality rate as high as 50% for those infected, would be to minimize contact with other people. This would require people to stay in their homes for an extended period of time. Without adequate food and water, this can not be accomplished. A pandemic could last in upwards of 12 months.
Once the pandemic begins, you can expect a panic to ensue that will result in store shelves being emptied overnight. Once this happens, the stores will most likely not be restocked anytime soon. For those who are late in buying extra food and water in advance, they may find themselves in a very challenging situation.
