I guess Costco is the only place these people shop.
I did my normal 7am sunday morning run to my new england regional grocery store to get fresh produce and milk/eggs. I figured if the lot was full I would nope the fuck out. I don't really need anything. It looked normal. Inside the normal small group of 70+ year olds doing their shopping. Only thing that stood out was a guy in his 20's that looked like the "doomer" meme. He had a cart full of canned goods and frozen shit.
Zero hand sanitizer but this place doesn't really have a big selection of that normally. All other products looked like normal levels.

State of Illinois Public Health Officials Announce New Presumptive Positive COVID-19 Case In Illinois
29th Feb, 2020

Patient’s presumptive positive test will be confirmed by the CDC

CHICAGO – The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and Cook County Department of Public Health (CCDPH) are today announcing that one Illinois patient has tested positive for COVID-19. The tests conducted in Illinois resulted in presumptive positives for COVID-19. The positive test results will have to be confirmed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) lab. The patient is hospitalized in isolation and CDC protocols have been implemented.

Public health officials are working to identify and actively monitor individuals who were in contact with the patient in an effort to reduce the risk of additional transmission. The state of Illinois will request CDC deploy a team to Illinois to support these efforts.

Governor JB Pritzker has requested that hospitals across the state implement additional testing to improve surveillance for COVID-19. Illinois was the first state to provide COVID-19 testing and Gov. Pritzker announced two more IDPH labs in central and southern Illinois that will be able to test specimens next week.

Illinois has had two previously confirmed cases of COVID-19 and both patients made a full recovery.

Symptoms reported among patients have included mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. Right now, because the virus has not been found to be spreading widely in the U.S., risk to the general public remains low. Public health officials are encouraging the public to not alter their daily routines and remain vigilant about keeping germs from spreading, by covering coughs and sneezes, washing hands with warm soap and water, and staying home when sick.

For more information, contact:
• Illinois Department of Public Health:

Costco is getting hit hard because they are the primary bulk shopping store most middle Americans shop at.

Most smaller chain grocery stores are still relatively well stocked save for hand sanitizer and maybe TP.

Masks are where people are really going to find scarcity. Most Chinese nationals and students did a clean sweep through suppliers a month ago and then resellers went through the rest. As others in this thread have mentioned, hand sanitizer is now around $100 an ounce on online marketplaces.

Don't be suprised if you see people ripping out and stealing sanitizers at cashiers and other hand stations at local stores to sell online. It has hit the price point where its become tempting to price gougers.

Edit: Spelling and grammer since I apparently had a mild stroke originally typing this. Apologies.

it would mean americans would start to realize that supply chain independence might be a good thing in the long run.

lmao just kidding. leftists will complain that it's racist for some reason, right-wingers won't really care, and boomers will complain they can't get to their spring break vacation in southeast asia and that it's very clearly someone else's fault and definitely not theirs.

but seriously it'll trigger another signal for market correction.
cruise lines, airlines, shipping companies are all prime stock buys in the coming weeks/months btw.

For some reason, I almost expect there to be an interview where this chick then said that she only wishes to give the glorious Chinese Empire 2 healthy sons - one to defend the nation by joining the PLA, the other to make the country prosper by working as a wageslave - and a beautiful daughter, to become the loving wife of the next generation of the only TRUE and HONEST Han Ubermenschen.

You know what just pisses me off? I keep seeing perishables in those carts and the empty shelves photos are almost always of shit that takes mere days to decompose.

Hey fuckheads! Read the god damned expiration date! I'm betting in a few weeks most of the places where panick buyers got everything are gonna have food poisoning outbreaks from all these fucktards microwaving rotten crap.
So what you're saying is there is not just Corona but a few other vectors leading to the genepool being scrubbed of excess and deadweight?

Suriving the apocalypse by ordering everything off Amazon Prime must be peak 'murica. The only possible way to increase the amount of 'murica would be to throw in a mobility scooter and an M4.

@Consenticles, El Comandante is in your boat as well. *waves hello* Here in Loonyland Adderall requires an in-person doctor visit every 30 days to renew because some stupid state politicians reeeeeeeeeeee'd the fuck out ages ago about adderall being a gateway drug or some horseshit.

Also, the benzo antipsychotics, fuck yeah I really don't want a fucking psychotic crash, went through one a little over a decade ago when a previous psychdoc fucked up, and it is fucking horrifying. Just look at the severe schizos (fortunately I'm rather mild, at least for now) who take their meds for a while and then drop off and go completely batshit, after a while their brains don't respond to anything and they end up sleeping in doorways and ranting to their imaginary friends on street corners.

And the "key ingredient" to all this shit is made in...you guessed it.

Food is the easy part. What happens when everybody's fucking meds run out? It's not just crazies, you have diabetics who will literally FUCKING DIE without their insulin, you have heart failure patients, you have the guys on dialysis, all the transplantees dependent on antirejection dope, all of it made in China. What with the way our civilization has gone, I suppose it was inevitable that something like this would come along to wipe out all the exceptionals.

      First Presumptive Positive Case of COVID-19 Identified at RIDOH's State Health Laboratories
      The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) is announcing the state's first presumptive positive case of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The person is in their 40s and had traveled to Italy in mid-February. RIDOH is coordinating closely with the hospital where this person is currently being treated and all infection control protocols are being followed.
      "The Rhode Island Department of Health has been preparing for weeks to ensure that we have a structure in place to, to the best of our ability, limit or prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Rhode Island. We fully anticipated having a first case of COVID-19," said Dr. Alexander-Scott. "We are not seeing widespread community transmission in Rhode Island, and the general level of risk for Rhode Islanders is still low. However, everyone in Rhode Island has a role to play in helping us prevent the spread of viruses, just like the flu. It is very important that people wash their hands regularly, cover their coughs and sneezes, and stay home if they are sick."
      Outreach to the people who were in direct contact with this individual has already begun, with extensive efforts underway to ensure that they undergo a period of 14 days of self-monitoring for symptoms at home with public health supervision (quarantine). As long as anyone exposed to the individual does not have symptoms outside of their home setting, the virus cannot spread to other people in the community. This individual's immediate family members have been self-quarantining at home since it was determined that, based on this person's travel history and symptoms, the individual met the criteria to be evaluated for COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is managing contact tracing for people on this person's return flight to the United States.
      This individual had limited travel in Rhode Island since returning from Italy. This person had not returned to their place of work since returning from Italy.
      In the past few weeks, RIDOH's State Health Laboratories worked to develop the capacity to perform testing for COVID-19 virus. In response to an urgent need, the State Health Laboratories expedited the final steps of implementation to run the test that identified this first case of COVID-19 in Rhode Island this weekend. Previously, all testing for COVID-19 was done at CDC. At this time, each presumptive positive test result must still be confirmed by the CDC Laboratories. This might change in the coming days.
      Because human coronaviruses most commonly spread through respiratory droplets, Rhode Islanders are reminded to take the same measures that healthcare providers recommend annually to prevent the spread of the flu and other viruses.
      - Get your flu shot, and make sure the people around you do the same. - Wash your hands often throughout the day. Use warm water and soap. If soap and water are not available, use alcohol-based hand gel. - Cough or sneeze into your elbow. Flu is spread through coughing or sneezing on other people or into your hands. Cover your coughs and sneezes to prevent others from getting sick. - Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs spread this way. - Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious foods. - Keep surfaces (especially bedside tables, surfaces in the bathroom, and toys for children) clean by wiping them down with a household disinfectant.
      The CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19. You should only wear a mask if a healthcare professional recommends it. A facemask should be used by people who have COVID-19 and are showing symptoms. This is to protect others from the risk of getting infected.
      If you have recently traveled from an area with widespread or ongoing community spread of COVID-19 and you have symptoms of the disease (fever, cough, shortness of breath) reach out to your healthcare provider and call ahead before going to a healthcare facility. The healthcare provider or facility will work closely with RIDOH.
      There have been more than 60 U.S. cases of COVID-19 confirmed. Globally, more than 80,000 cases have been confirmed. CDC reported the first U.S. fatality on February 29th.
      RIDOH continues to be notified by the federal government of asymptomatic travelers who are coming to Rhode Island after having been in China in the previous 14 days. These people are doing self-monitoring for symptoms for 14 days and are limiting their movement locally. (Passengers who have symptoms or who are coming from Hubei Province are not coming to Rhode Island. They are being quarantined domestically near the international airport where they landed.)
      RIDOH is coordinating with other State agencies and community organizations to support anyone doing self-quarantining to ensure that people who are remaining at home have the support services they need. This includes support with everyday needs, such as prescriptions and groceries. The organizations that have offered support include agencies throughout the Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS), the Rhode Island Food Bank, the American Red Cross, and other members of Rhode Island's Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (VOAD).
      The additional preparedness steps that RIDOH has taken include:
      - Establishing an Incident Command System response, which is how RIDOH and other State agencies organize to prepare for (or respond to) an urgent situation that requires extensive coordination. It includes staff from the Rhode Island Emergency Management Agency (RIEMA), the Rhode Island Department of Behavioral Healthcare, Developmental Disabilities, and Hospitals (BHDDH), the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE), the Rhode Island Department of Human Services (DHS), the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (DEM), the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE), and Rhode Island Commerce. It also includes staff from RIDOH's State Health Laboratories, Center for Acute Infectious Disease Epidemiology, Center for Emergency Preparedness and Response, and Center for Public Health Communication, among other areas of RIDOH. - Regularly communicating with RIDOH's Infectious Disease Epidemiology Advisory Committee (IDEAC) to track any clinical and epidemiological developments related to COVID-19. (IDEAC is a group of infectious disease physicians throughout Rhode Island that provides guidance to RIDOH leadership on emerging infectious disease matters.) - Maintaining a robust system to receive and follow up on illness reports from Rhode Island healthcare providers. - Regularly sending to local healthcare providers summaries of the national situation, criteria to guide evaluation of patients, and guidance on specimen collection, testing, and reporting. - Coordinating closely with healthcare facilities and emergency medical services (EMS) providers to ensure their preparedness. - Communicating regularly to community partners, such as schools, faith leaders, and municipal officials.
      More information about COVID-19 is available in multiple languages at health.ri.gov/covid.

I think it's good states are instituting their own testing procedures. Hopefully we'll see the necessary containment/mitigation steps taken soon rather than later, because of this.

Costco is also utterly beloved by the pan-Asian community everywhere I've ever been, that's a bit of a factor.

Also remember that when the 1st of the month falls on a weekend, the welfare people get their cards loaded up the Friday before.
Food stamps are doled out depending on last number of your SS# so it's spread between the 1st and 15th (in my state at least).
We never go grocery shopping during the first week of any given month because of this.
If you're on a budget it's the worse time to shop. Stores always raise prices at the beginning of the month.

Probably a good idea to have a thread on this given how often it's discussed and will continue to be discussed even after November.
