7 Infections You Might Catch During SHTF - And How They Are Treatedimage © – Wikipedia – (PD)

When an unexpected tragedy such as a natural disaster or war occurs, many subsequent problems can arise. A major concern for these times is the spreading of communicable diseases and these often kill more people than the original disaster. These are often caused by lack of clean water, medical supplies or sanitation and too many people placed in a small area.

Note that this can happen even in the “First World”: Diseases such as Cholera, Tuberculosis and Salmonella were reported after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Response teams acted swiftly to contain all diseases and prevent further contamination. It makes you wonder, what if they had been in a situation where medical help was unavailable? How quick would they have spread?

Prevention for all these diseases include boiling or filtering drinking water, good hygiene and prevention of food contamination. Be sure to wash hands often after using the restroom and before eating.

Here are 7 diseases to be cautious of and some methods used to treat them (note, this is not medical advice nor a substitute for medical advice).
