skupples sure, blame the bats... the more I read bout this thing, the more it seems engineered. but I know dittly squat on the subject, and for some reason it blows my mind the way we continue to react to this. would be nice if it could take out both political extremes (left and right) the world, and internet would be a much quieter and nicer place without them. Though, SM would just create a new army, as that's part of the design.

just functions so much differently than any other flu pandemic in the past. H1N1 wasn't as big of a deal because it didn't include asymptomatic reinfection.

skupples Correct. caused worldwide IV bag shortages, because the bulk of allowed to be used in The West bags were coming outta The 2nd most corrupt island on earth. Puerto Rico,which ended up getting flattened by a hurricane, and is still a clusterfark, all these years later. The public officials have squandered & stolen every last drop. All while warehouses sit full of rotting supplies to this day. hundreds if not thousands dead from post storm starvation & exposure. Completely preventable, but govt.

the IV bag shortage was caused by natural disaster, and lack of manufacturing redundancy.

Apparently I heard the one of the larger manufacturing plant for the US was located in Puerto Rico and was destroyed during a hurricane.

Well, as much as possible, over the least amount of time possible, of course. Spain got ahead of themselves and apparently bought a batch of test kits that only had a 30% detection rate instead of the stated 80%+ from a non-licensed company and had to return that batch. Mistakes happen.

speed_demon Lots of things are running out. Or have been in the past years. Helium was running out and caused a bunch of issues for divers. https://timesofmalta.com/articles/vi...o-close.742710

y'all should dig into the root causes of medical supply line issues. It's not as simple as "reeeee china!"

google up IV Bag shortage, it's a good place to start, a few years back in time, when people really started to realize the potential of what was coming.
