Coronavirus - what are we not being told?

In 2009 there was a flu pandemic and nearly 600 000 people died globally as a result.

Did you know that ? Probably not, because there was no panic, no closing schools or cities down in fact I have no recollection of it being mentioned at all. To the date of this article there has been less that 4000 global deaths of coronavirus and yet the world is in complete and total meltdown. Virtually every person I talk to, even the most rational people, are saying something isn't right with this, is it a distraction or something more sinister?, the only thing we can say is there is definitely something we are not being told.

Coronavirus - purify water to drink with sodium hypochlorite

Most household bleaches contain sodium hypochlorite, this can be used to purify drinking water in an emergency situation. Although we are unlikely to face any problems with water shortages with the coronavirus outbreak it does no harm to have the information at hand just in case. Buy basic household bleach, no additives like fragrances or any other chemicals, usually the bargain brand ones are the best to use. Make sure if using rain water or ground water that it is properly filtered first, then use the table below to add the correct amount of chemical to make it safe to drink. Remember this should not be used for the long term and only if you can't get to boil the water instead.

If you do get the chance to boil water instead of using bleach to purify it, you can make it more pleasant to drink afterwards by adding 1/4 tsp salt per litre and shaking vigorously.
