Yes. You need a doctor’s prescription for antibiotics. These drugs will be scarce during wars as international exchange of goods may be compromised


Very nice list, however you do not want chlorine to disinfect water, bleach (plain, NOT scented: 4 to 6% sodium hypochlorite) is best. One problem I have been unable to solve is where and how to obtain antibiotics? Where I reside they are not sold in the stores, need a prescription. Of course I have read much about fish antibiotics being just as good, but I have no education on such things.
