i heard that shipments from Japan and South Korea are also on hold. better buy what is still at low pricing that you have been thinking about, such as cameras and computers.

Many merchants coming from Asia areas especially China are put on hold... because workers in China were told to stay home due to Coronavirus and numerous factories remain closed. This causes delays for new electronics such as Iphones and smartphones.

UPS and FedEx made the flights to China voluntarily for pilots to move the shipments there. The volume took a hit as they do not get many package to transport back from China.

Are packages overcrowded in factories over there now? The market stock is down around 2%. It seems that global shipping is affecting the economy. I think it's the best time to stock up right now. Lowes near me is busy now! The N95 and P100 facial masks are all gone on the shelves for two months.

I'm not sure about the package overcrowded but the source (CNN) says UPS has seen reduced demand for it's service as a result of business closures. There is a lot of "floating quarantines" as some countries such as Australia refuse to allow container ships from China to enter their port.

Shipping companies that carry goods from China to the rest of the world say they are reducing the number of seaborne vessels, as measures to stop the spread of the coronavirus crimp demand for their services and threaten to disrupt global supply chains.

About 80% of world goods trade by volume is carried by sea and China is home to seven of the world's 10 busiest container ports, according to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development. Nearby Singapore and South Korea each have a mega port too.

UPS (UPS) and FedEx Express (FDX) said they continue to fly into and out of China. UPS said it has seen reduced demand for its services as a result of business closures.

It's probably good idea to stock up... there is a case near here that 3 university students are in isolation after symptom of coronavirus. They were living together as roommates. It seem to be more widespread all over the countries except Antarctica.

I've been doing it since around 3/12, if not sooner. That was the day I did my last grocery shopping. I should be good, grocery wise, for another week, except for milk maybe and I can get that at a convenience store.

I do go out for outdoor walks at parks each day. And I have visited my local daughter and her family a few times.

Since restaurants cannot have dine in service in our state, I will continue to do drive-thru or take-out to support these places....and to keep my supply of food from dwindling prematurely. :)
