Panic over the coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China is becoming more widespread and people are frantically getting prepared in case this thing goes bad. Things like N95 masks and other PPE are pretty much sold out in stores across the nation and also on Amazon.

In light of this, the most common question I’ve been asked lately by readers is, “What do I need to buy?”

Here’s what we know about the Wuhan Coronavirus.

First things first, more important than purchasing a whole bunch of stuff is understanding the virus itself. You need to know how it spreads, what the incubation period is, and who is the most at risk. This article has information about what we know right now to be true.

Now, keep in mind that what we currently “know” is being filtered by the Chinese government. We have a lot of reasons to believe that they aren’t being fully open with the rest of the world. For example, the numbers they’re reporting don’t really align with the complicated and expensive steps that China has taken to quarantine people and restrict their travel. But – we do have a small set of facts to work with and as we get more information, we’ll be able to add it to our plan and adjust our preparedness strategies accordingly.

Here’s what appears to be true:

Most of the people who are dying are elderly or had pre-existing health conditions.
The symptoms are flu-like, but what kills people is when it turns into pneumonia.
It is spread person-to-person – it can be airborne on droplets from coughing and sneezing.
It has been transmitted to at least one person who has not been to Wuhan.
The incubation period is anywhere from 2-14 days and people are contagious before they show symptoms.
The death rate is around 3% if what we’re being told is accurate.
There’s a lot of information we can glean from the facts above, assuming they’re accurate.
