They're saying the panic buying has hit the US... hope you're not getting caught in this and you're already stocked up!

This was my Walmart not long ago running very low on meds: [link to imgur.com (secure)]

The pic of the masks and gloves got stripped completely in two days and those are just the shitty non-rated dust masks.

Americans make me smile! This is the America I know. Good, these assholes can do their stupid. It gives time to restock shelves before SHTF.

I work in a grocery store in middle of america, big city. Panic buying has not happened. Although with a few exceptions I have seen no prepping. People are talking about it though and it seems as if people are curious about what grocery store workers think about the coronavirus. I have probably been asked by at least 20 strangers what I think about it, unprompted! People have been waking up to what this thing is.

Also I have seen no obviously sick people either, other than a couple of my friends who got really sick. They stayed home as much as they could when they were sick.

I have only seen ONE person wearing a mask. I saw another young Asian lady who had a mask but it was around her neck and not on.

Lone Star State. Hit up two Wally Worlds and an Aldi's within the last three days. Everything is absolutely normal.

Re: Panic Buying In the US Has Begun!
Was out food shopping today. Decided to look at the small stores for masks.

Already got two big boxes on the shelf.

Looking to score the folding ones with the exhaust valve.

Want to put a few in a belt pouch with disposable gloves.


Everywhere cleaned out. Checked Wallyworld while I was there.

A few stores said they get a few in now and then. But they are immediately bought up.

Probably by them to scalp on ebay.

There was actually a shortage several years ago when the longshoremen went on strike in Los Angeles. People probably still remember that! I know I do.

The supply chain is fragile, people.

Homosexuality is rampant among Hawaiian natives. Probably genetic to some extent.

The first link has pics and info from all over the country, not just Hawaii. Has info/pics on California, Michigan, Virginia, Texas, Minnesota, Florida, Washington (state), and Kentucky. Most of the articles I'm seeing are within the last few hours or so. If it's just starting we obviously won't see it everywhere in every store all at the same time...

...just sayin'!
