OK, folks, this isn't a news broadcast or a government statement. This video was put up today by a truck driver at the Port of Los Angeles. She shows us the real conditions on the ground at the container facility there, thanks to the coronavirus epidemic. I'll let her do the talking.
If you buy much from stores that rely on Chinese products - stores like Walmart, Target, Harbor Freight, and many others - you can now see where they're going to be a couple of months from now. What's in the supply pipeline right now - the containers that have already left our ports - is all there is for the foreseeable future. When it's used up, those stores will either have to find alternative suppliers - and right now, none have stepped up to the plate, because they aren't shipping containers here either - or do without. That means their customers will do without, too. Forewarned is forearmed.
As I've said before, the real impact of COVID-19 is going to be commercial and economic, rather than health (although that's going to be interesting, too).
