We all have varying opinions about the impact of this, the numbers, etc. We will all never agree with each other. But we can all keep it civil.

Thanks!

Farm's have finite resources and can only support so many animals. Culling is already happening right now because again there is no DEMAND.

So in a couple of months we will be having serious food problems, especially in the meat section.

We could have meat shortages. We won't have food shortages, though, outside of some remote areas.

So, what's the problem? Are people getting sick or something, and can't process the animals?

I agree.

I've gone out multiple times each week since the lockdowns in Los Angeles began and I have to say, it's helped my peace of mind immensely. I don't mind masks and gloves and if those are required in order to open things back up, I'm all for it. I think the Coronavirus team has done the best they could, given this situation and while some of the guidelines have changed since early March, I think people have a pretty good handle on what to expect.

But the longer we wait to restart the economy and get people back to work, the more people will be permanently out of a job, which could lead to evictions and foreclosures, not to mention the shuttering of truly legitimate small business, not Ruth's Chris or the LA Lakers, but true Mom & Pops and Single Entity proprietorship's.

If masks (and gloves) are required to open businesses, allow the major sports to resume and even open Disneyland, so be it. I might not be "back to normal" but we need to get back to as much normalcy as we can and as soon as possible.

I think its a matter of packing plants not having demand for animals (Places to eat being shut down mass event's etc)

and

The fact farmers because of demand have no were to sell their current adult stock so they are not breeding. They have to in order to protect their operations.

The economy is not returning if half the population is scared of catching something.
Or perhaps they will see that the half has gone out, things have not gotten worse and the economy is not tanking at nearly the rate as before. And perhaps then they will finally decide that it is okay to start to venture out. Not to mention that there will probably be some kind of vaccine at some point.

Okay.

1. At least 16 meatpacking plants are currently closed

As of April 29, at least 19 U.S. meatpacking plants and five processed food plants have closed due to a shortage of workers. An estimated 5,300 plant workers across the nation have been confirmed to be ill with the novel coronavirus. Many thousands more have stopped going to work, either because they are required to quarantine at home in the face of possible exposure to the virus or simply because they refuse to labor under what many say were unsafe working conditions.

If places start opening and shit doesn't go off the rails, people will slowly get back to normal.

Pretty much, but the media is trying to hype it. Yet we still haven't seen hospitals in Florida and Georgia get overwhelmed or close to it yet. Of course there is a lag, but I think once a few more state open up and they dont see New York we will be back on pace for getting going again.

I really don't think it'll be an all or nothing thing. There are some areas that will be fine. And the reality is there are probably areas that will see spikes and have to close things down again. The problem is you have no idea where that'll be. You're basically just spinning the roulette wheel and hoping it doesn't land on you.
