The government publishes a list of basic commodities to survive for ten days
At least 20 liters of liquids such as water and juices, 3.5 kilograms of bread, potatoes, pasta and rice, as well as 2.5 kilograms of fruit and nuts, preferably canned, recommends the German Ministry of the Interior to permanently pantry to keep in the house. That would be the collection per person to survive for ten days in the event of a disaster, from a pandemic like the one with the coronavirus to a case of prolonged failure of critical infrastructure, wars, earthquakes or floods that can leave someone isolated in their home.
The emergency pantry list published periodically by the Federal Office for Disaster Relief also includes, and always per person, four kilograms of canned vegetables and dried legumes, 2.6 kilograms of sustainable dairy products, as well as 1.5 kilograms of meat, fish, sausage and eggs, as well as oil, sugar, salt, and flour in unspecified amounts. Any products they recommend keeping at home for a critical situation that could last up to a week and a half should be long lasting, although they should be checked regularly to replace products that are about to expire.
The German Interior Minister, the Social Democrat Nancy Faeser, reiterated on May 1 the advice to preventively and permanently collect these foods and liquids, on that occasion because of the war in Ukraine. The German CEO also made a similar appeal at the start of the coronavirus pandemic. “Consider, for example, a cyberattack on critical infrastructure,” Faeser told Handelsblatt newspaper a month ago, emphasizing that “if there is a prolonged power outage” or daily life is drastically curtailed by a catastrophe, “It is up to recommended to have an emergency pantry in the house.”
