Coronavirus Fears Continue to Spark Panic Buying in U.S., UK, Japan & New Zealand

Tinned food, water, toilet paper & surgical masks all flying off the shelves.

Published

on

Fears over the coronavirus impacting supply chains have continued to drive panic buying of food, water, toilet paper and surgical masks across numerous major countries today.

More than 50 countries now have confirmed coronavirus cases, with the worst hit countries outside of China being Iran and Italy. BBC News reports that at least 210 people in Iran had died from the virus, way higher than official government figures.

This has prompted panic buying as customers desperately stock up on supplies in anticipation of potential shortages.

Photos out of northern California show shelves being emptied of respirators and bottled water.

Face masks are also completely sold out in numerous stores.

Hand sanitizer, thermometers and oat milk are also in hot demand as supplies are exhausted.

Cough medicine and other flu drugs are also running low.

Another photo from a Target in St. Paul MN illustrates the demand for tinned food.

“Stores everywhere selling out of masks,” reports Seattle news station KIRO 7, noting that a box of surgical masks on Amazon is also retailing over $1000 dollars.

In the United Kingdom, online supermarket Ocado said it had been experiencing “exceptionally high demand” with customers placing “particularly large orders”.

The retailer is telling customers that they may have to make their orders further in advance due to shortages.

The New Zealand Herald reports that people are “stocking up for the apocalypse” despite there just being a single confirmed coronavirus case in the entire country.

“One shopper described lengthy queues, with water, hand sanitiser, soap and tissues flying off the shelves,” states the report, adding that there were huge lines at supermarkets across Auckland as soon as they opened.

Meanwhile, in Japan store shelves are being emptied of toilet paper despite an industry body’s request for people to stay calm.

Kyodo News reports that stock is being exhausted just 5 minutes after it is placed on shelves at drug stores and supermarkets.

After photos of empty shelves went viral on social media, the Japanese government had to step in to reassure citizens, “Most toilet paper used in Japan is produced domestically and the supply chains remain intact.”

Meanwhile, the WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has said yet again today that “stigma” is a bigger threat than the coronavirus.

So despite the threat of a global pandemic and mass panic buying, at least we know people’s feelings won’t be hurt.

MSNBC: “Christian Nationalist” Supreme Court “Sided With The Virus” By Shooting Down Vaccine Mandate

Justices “should all just have right-wing talk radio shows”

Published

The Supreme Court’s decision not to uphold Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for private businesses sparked anger and vitriol on the left, with MSNBC broadcasting programming declaring that the court has “sided with the virus” for not approving compulsory injections.

Joy Reid, yes her again, opened her broadcast by stating “the U.S. Supreme Court siding with the virus today by blocking the Biden administration’s rule requiring vaccine mandates for companies employing more than 100 people.”

She later added “I think they’re ideologues. I think they’re right-wing ideologues I think they’re sort of doing sort of a Christian Nationalist version of you know whatever it is the Supreme Court used to do.”

Reid further proclaimed that the conservative justices on the court “don’t really care if this causes lots of people to die, clearly.”

She also asked “Have they not just simply stated by their actions that they are more in favor of right-wing politics, the kind of DeSantis style right-wing politics than they are in favor of saving lives?”

Reid further declared that the justices “should all just have right-wing talk radio shows,” adding “they are not justices in the great tradition of Supreme Court justices. They’re just politicians. As far as I’m concerned, I see nothing about what they’re doing that I can possibly respect.”

Watch:

All of that is quite an about turn coming from such a previously stringent anti-vaxxer like Reid.

Reid also doesn’t seem to care about saving lives when it suits her politics.

Other extreme leftists were also distraught that the Supreme Court didn’t approve forced vaccination:

    Ikea Says It Will Cut Sick Pay For The Unvaccinated

    ‘Our approach to COVID-related absences has evolved’

    Furniture retailer Ikea has announced that it intends to cut sick pay for any staff who remain unvaccinated and need to self isolate if they test positive or come into contact with someone who tests positive for COVID.

    The Daily Mail reports that the Swedish company, which employs some 10,000 people in the UK alone intends to slash sick pay to the legal minimum of just £93.35 per week for anyone who is unvaccinated.

    That would mean a cut of more than a three quarters of the company’s usual wages for workers.

    “Unvaccinated co-workers without mitigating circumstances who have been identified as close contacts of a positive case will be paid statutory sick pay,” an Ikea spokesperson told reporters.

    “We appreciate that this is an emotive topic and all circumstances will be considered on a case by case basis, therefore anyone in doubt or concerned about their situation is encouraged to speak to their manager,” the spokesperson added.

    The company announced that the policy will only apply to unvaccinated workers with “high levels of absence.”

    The company claims that the move is prompted by recent staff shortages owing to many having to isolate.

    “Following the vaccine rollout and changes in the government’s isolation requirements, our approach to COVID-related absences evolved from September 20, 2021—an approach developed with our social partners and national co-worker committee,” the company further declared.

    Ikea also recently offered workers paid leave to go and get vaccinated.

    As we noted yesterday, oncology professor Angus Dalgleish of St George’s Hospital, University of London has warned that British people have become obsessed with taking lateral flow COVID tests and that “it is tantamount to national self-harm,” because it is causing millions to miss work and isolate even though they have no symptoms.

    “Hospitals, transport networks, our postal and rubbish collection services and hundreds of thousands of British businesses are now being crippled because of a mania over checking people for an infection that they may have no symptoms for,” Dalgleish urges.

    Noting that the Omicron variant is very mild, but very ‘rampant’ with isolation doing little to combat its spread, the professor further describes self imposed lockdowns as “insanity”.

    25-Year-Old Soccer Star Suddenly Collapses, Dies During Training

    Marcos Menaldo complained of suffering breathing difficulties.

    Published

    A 25-year-old Guatemalan soccer star collapsed during training and tragically died shortly after being rushed to hospital.

    Marcos Menaldo, a defender who played for Deportivo Marquense, reported suffering breathing difficulties during the training session on Monday.

    “The tragedy occurred at the Marquesa de la Ensenada Stadium where Menaldo received emergency CPR treatment on the pitch in San Marcos before being transferred to the Hospital de Especialidades where he died,” reports the Mirror.

    Menaldo was a fan favorite after leading his team to the second division title last month.

    “A young, dynamic and jovial person, this happens to him. It is quite strong and shocking because you lose not only a player, you lose a friend,” remarked Hernan Maldonado, Deportivo’s club president.

    “They transferred him to the assistance centre where they did everything possible. But unfortunately, the death was confirmed,” he added.

    The report notes that Menaldo’s death tragically followed that of Croatian footballer Marin Cacic, who died in similar circumstances just before Christmas after suddenly collapsing during training.

    The 23-year-old was diagnosed with heart failure before being rushed to a nearby hospital but died on December 23rd.

    Back in November, German newspaper Berliner Zeitung published a report seeking to answer why an “unusually large number of professional and amateur soccer players have collapsed recently.”

    Other footballers to develop sudden heart or breathing problems in recent weeks and months include Sherrif Tiraspol winger Adama Traore, Sheffield United’s John Fleck, and Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof.

    FC Barcelona’s Sergio Agüero, the 33-year-old striker who had to be withdrawn from a match after 41 minutes suffering from dizziness and breathing difficulties, was also recently forced into early retirement.

    As we previously highlighted, other professional athletes have also recently suffered similar health problems, including 24-year-old Slovak hockey player Boris Sádecký, who tragically died after collapsing on the ice during a match last year.

    28-year-old bodybuilder Jake Kazmarek also died “unexpectedly” four days after taking the COVID jab.

    After questions began to swirl about whether vaccine side-effects were playing a role in the spate of incidents, media outlets reassured the public that that this was merely a “coincidence.”

    That didn’t stop ex-England pro Matt Le Tissier from calling for a full investigation.

    “It’s been very concerning for me watching the sport that I love and I played for 17 years…in all that time that I played I never once saw any footballer leave the pitch because of heart issues,” said Le Tissier.

    “Now I’m sorry, but if anybody can look at what’s happening now in the world of sport and say it’s normal for all of these people to be having heart issues, in football matches, cricket matches, basketball matches, any sport you wish, these people, the amount of people that are suffering is going through the roof,” he added.

    During a viral podcast with Joe Rogan which was subsequently censored by YouTube, Dr. Peter McCullough warned that soccer players collapsing could be linked to vaccine-induced myocarditis.

    McCullough warned that myocarditis has become at least 50% more common than predicted by US public health ‘experts.’

    During a live radio show in the UK, ex-footballer Trevor Sinclair mentioned a potential link to vaccines, but he was cut off shortly after beginning his statement.
