I have observed that latex and/or vinyl gloves are more expensive and available from fewer vendors than was the cases a couple of weeks ago.tpals wrote:Two weeks ago, when I ordered supplies listed on this thread, all were readily available. Now, some of those items are out of stock or the price has gone up.
Disposable coveralls and disposable isolation gowns seem to be less available.
Reusable cotton surgical gowns (sterilise by boiling and then re use) are still readily available but only from USA fleabay sellers, which would add to costs and delay delivery.
Cotton cellular blankets that can be boiled are still available, only from a limited number of vendors, but outside of institutions these are not much used nowadays.
reusable hospital patient gowns are readily available.
Chlorine tablets are readily available from the supplier that I earlier suggested, and from fleabay. unfortunately most of these tablets are made by one company, no matter who distributes them. I don't know how much stock they keep and how quickly and to what extent production can be increased.
Face masks and goggles seem to be readily available on line and in tool and hardware stores.
General doomer supplies as distinct from Ebola specific items, seem to be in plentiful supply.
