In a collapse, public health services like water purification and sewage disposal will come to a standstill, spurring all sorts of diseases that can take your life. That’s why it’s important to familiarize yourself now with some of the more common diseases you might encounter in such a situation and learn how to deal with them. After all, it’s not like you’ll be able to call an ambulance to bring you to the hospital in a collapse. Here’s a helpful list inspired by Survival Dan 101.

E. Coli

You’ve probably heard a lot of news stories about E. coli outbreaks, which should be your first clue that the bacterial illness is extremely common and spreads easily. While it’s pretty easy to avoid under normal circumstances through regular hand washing, nearly everything you touch could contain fecal matter in a disaster. The bacteria can get into your body through unclean utensils or raw produce, dairy products left out too long, food stored at improper temperatures, and raw seafood.

Once you’ve been infected, you’ll start to notice symptoms that might include gas, a loss of appetite, abdominal cramping, fever, fatigue, and watery diarrhea. These symptoms could last for up to a week. If you experience bloody urine, bruising, pale skin, or dehydration, you could have a severe E. coli infection.


This disease isn’t just limited to the Oregon Trail. It’s encountered to this day in situations where water isn’t sterilized sufficiently, food is prepared improperly, or human waste isn’t disposed of correctly.

Symptoms of the infectious diarrheal disease can appear anywhere from two to ten days after infection, and they might include frequent watery stools that have mucus and blood occurring dozens of times per day, loss of appetite, vomiting, excessive gas, bloating, and high fever.

Typhoid Fever

Caused by the Salmonellae typhi bacteria, you can get typhoid fever from ingesting water or food that is contaminated with it. The signs of typhoid fever include a sustained high fever, weakness, headache, loss of appetite and stomach pains. In some cases, a rose-colored rash with flat spots might appear.
