In the long run I think the discussion on warehousing is more interesting. The current economic system works with small margins and there is no warehousing and stockpiling of certain necessities like we did 50 years ago. And this doesn’t mean that everybody should be a prepper, but the government could be better prepared with stockpiling in my opinion.

So it is an interesting discussion, the virus doesn’t care where it is so the US and other countries are forced to work together to fix this problem. Even if you curb the infections this season there is no guarantee it will return later this year in a slightly mutated form.
