But these weeks before pesach is when everybody always hoards. Why arenít the companies releasing far more ? One large supermarket ordered 200 cases of eggs & only got 20.
Eggs are a real shortage while chicken not yet..

Because they can't keep up with the demand. Said family member told us he has never gotten such huge orders in the history of his career. This is not regular hoarding, its insanity. At this point of the year, distributors are usually only writing the post pesach orders as the groceries are not ordering chometz products anymore. Now they are still going full force with the chometz products. He claimed he has never seen this before.

A lot of shortages are due to workers not coming in due to illness.

This was the underlying fear behind hoarding

Do you know this as fact that there are factories with a labor shortage?
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

They are not the same breed and also not the same farm.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

Besides, the more chickens you sell the less eggs are produced :)
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Well then either the chickens or the eggs are lying.

Good news?

Although the death toll is unfortunately climbing in the US right now, the mortality rate is actually dropping (for now) as more testing becomes available. Currently at 1.4%
Hopefully that percentage keeps dropping.

Donít want to get your hopes down but - many new people infected. And people donít die instantly.
Hence the death rate is low but so is the recovered case rate. Need the recovered rate to rise before saying anything is good news.

South Korea (going to a country that will be most similar to the USA) has a 25% recovery rate and a 1-1.2% death rate.
