One Former Grocery Supermarket Boss Issues Ridiculous Warning Over Coronavirus Panic You Won’t Believe

(Tea Party 247) – Worldwide panic over the coronavirus is reaching a fever pitch. People in the United Kingdom are apparently “panic buying” things like hand sanitizer, toilet paper and medicine. Some industry experts believe it’s only a matter of time before people start panic buying groceries and self-isolating causing food shortages and general chaos.

Summit News reports:

Former Tesco supply chain director Bruno Monteyne warns that a large scale outbreak of coronavirus in the UK could lead to “food riots,” requiring the army to be used to guard supermarkets.

Monteyne said that supermarkets would have to resort to drastic measures and revert to “feed the nation status” under a worse case scenario.

He also cautioned that grocery stores would have trouble stocking shelves and delivering goods if their employees decided to self-isolate.

“Yes, it will be chaotic (and expect pictures of empty shelves),” wrote Mr Monteyne, “but the industry will reduce complexity to keep the country fed.”

He said that the army may need to be drafted in to guard stores and prevent disorder.

UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock said he was “confident” food supplies would not run out and that there was “absolutely no need” to panic-buy.

Hancock also claimed that supermarkets could deliver food to coronavirus patients who had self-isolated, although this claim was immediately put in doubt by one supermarket executive, who said he was “baffled” by the suggestion.

“Matt Hancock has totally made up what he said about working with supermarkets. We haven’t heard anything from government directly,” the executive said, adding, “I’m not sure the government can guarantee all food supply ian [sic] all instances.”

A source at another supermarket told the BBC that there had been no detailed planning involving government departments about “ensuring uninterrupted food supplies.”

Panic buying continued across the UK today, with supermarket shelves of goods like hand sanitizer, toilet paper and medicine.

The number of coronavirus cases in the UK has now reached 163, with two deaths.

This is complete lunacy and we can expect to see much of the same madness right here in the United States if people aren’t able to control their knee-jerk reactions to news about the coronavirus spreading.

Everyone is freaking out over the coronavirus but here are some facts straight from the CDC on the fast-spreading influenza virus: in the US, since October 1, 2019, there have been 34,000,000-49,000,000 cases of the flu with 20,000-52,000 deaths. Now, compare that with the 164 cases of coronavirus and the 11 subsequent deaths. Why isn’t there mass hysteria over the influenza virus which, by the way, has symptoms worse than that of the coronavirus and a much, much higher mortality rate?

There are not even 200 cases of the coronavirus in the UK and people are in an absolute panic mass panic buying things. It’s silliness.

When are people going to wake up and stop buying into the propaganda being spread by irresponsible leftist media outlets who are literally looking to cause widespread chaos? A world in chaos is the only way the globalist agenda will come to fruition and here we are feeding right into it.

Everyone needs to take a deep breath and realize that just because a virus has an official name does not mean it’s cause for mass panic and chaos.

  1. Hey y’all — he was half-right! And it’s way worse than you think — but y’all don’t, since y’all have your head up your traitorous asses!

  2. The flu doesn’t have a higher mortality rate than COVID-19. The WHO estimates the COVID-19 mortality rate at 3.4 percent. Flu is around 0.1 percent. So out of 1000 cases of COVID-19, 34 people will die. Out of 1000 cases of flu, 1 person will die.

    So extrapolate outward as it continues to spread. Once it’s infected the same number of people as the flu, it will be killing 34 times as many people. That’s actually an underestimate, because we’ll run out of hospital beds and then a lot of the ‘serious’ cases will turn into ‘fatal’ cases due to people not receiving the care they need to remain alive.

    At the current rate of spread, the US will be out of free beds in all hospitals by some time in May. We only have enough protective equipment for healthcare workers to last a short period of time. Once that stuff runs out, the healthcare workers will be sickening and dying off themselves and that will then compound the hospital bed shortage problem.

  3. Folks, i hear ya. But do not UNDER-estimate the damage from covid-19 either…
    Look, the Chinese didn’t crash their economy out of boredom. They were forced to make a hard choice… Protect your people or protect your economy. They chose the former, the latter is in an utter shambles and will take years to rebuild. That ain’t hype either…
    Commerce has flatlined over there. And worse, almost no food, medicines or personal hygeine products are being delivered into the hot zones. People are going hungry over there now.
    Italy… 17 days ago, there were 3 cases in that country. Now 1/4th of the country is on lockdown, almost 150 deaths per day are being reported. Nursing students are being graduated early and every retired doctor they can find is being pulled out of retirement.
    Worse, they are running out of beds and supplies and have begun prioritizing patients based on age. They are saving the younger ones and leaving the elderly ones to die.
    Some folks believe covid 19 is just another flu. They are wrong. It’s a deafly virus that attacks the lungs and then shuts internal organs down. And in the US, it’s already HERE, and because of the 15-27 day incubation period, it is being spread all over the place. Within the 3rd and 4rh week of March, those floating cases will all begin to pop almost simultaniously.
    Dismiss covid-19 to your own detriment….

    • We already live with a virus which is worse than the Corona virus an has killed far more each year than the entire world has from this corona virus issue. Let calm heads find out what to do with this virus an get it under control. This needs to be dealt with serious attention, not with hysteria an panic! The Big issue is yet they have not developed a Vaccine in which to fight this virus with. It will only be time to get this solved an taken care of, like any other disease.

  4. I am thinking the worlders are elated, hoping we will all agree only a 1 world government can handle such things.
    Was it by chance that a few weeks before it started, 1worlder Bill Gates, promoter and producer of vaccines, held a world practice run for corona virus??? NOT. And I am thinking they watch with glee as the stock market struggles, hoping it will weaken Trumps economy and he will be blamed and lose the election. All indications to date are that there is little doubt this originated in a weapons lab. We have had similar scares before. Avian bird flu. I remember we were encouraged to expect a world epidemic. It came and went with little fanfare and no pandemic.

    • Better to call them cannon fodder, All they are doing is feeding the fire with air to burn, than to put it out!

  5. People will stop buying into the propaganda when we have faith in and can trust our leaders to tell the truth. Trump Mumbles and tries to sound in formed and confident in his figures. It is quite obvious he hasn’t got a clue, while he muzzles the experts from the CDC who have. Pence is no better look at his record.
    The sooner we have an administration that believes in science the better.

  6. The left wing media is trying to promote panic and hysteria, as a way to defeat President Trump. They bashed him as racist and overreacting when he stopped flights from China; they bashed him later when he “didn’t allocate enough money”; they have bashed him for underreacting in the face of this “deadly pandemic”.

    Something of note – over the last decade, every election year we’ve had a panic – SARS, MERS, Ebola (twice), H1N1, now CoVID-19..

  7. People are weird they believe whoever they hear first instead of checking out all the information available. Panic seems to be the way most people want to handle it. Ridiculous.

  8. On the back of a container of Lysol it lists “Human Coronavirus” as one the things it will kill. So obviously Coronavirus is not something new that was created in a lab. Statistics say that the fatality rate from Coronavirus is no worse than the Flu, single digits. Covid-19 highly contagious, yes, but low death rate. For a demographic such as those on a cruise ship, typically they are older people who are more susceptible to a Coronavirus; consequently, with a concentration of those more susceptible, deaths are more likely. Coronavirus a problem, yes, but not the end of the world.

  9. Panic first, ask questions later. Typical go with the herd mentality that got our country into all sorts of problems and apparently Great Britain as well.

  10. Being calm and cool headed yet the media is feeding the fire. Common sense people and put things into perspective. Relax and take a breath. Live each day as always with doing the necessary steps to keep safe and all will be fine. Great article and a grand way to put things in right form instead of this ridiculous pass hysteria the media is trying to produce. Let’s beat them at their own game and use our common sense and truth not what they want us to believe. God Bless to all and be safe! We will be okay honestly.

  11. The Left will grab at any straws in order to instigate mass panic and chaos so that they can “step up” and provide a “solution” (translation: political power grab). The MSM (Washington Post, NY Times, “Fake News” CNN, “Conspiracy Network” MSDNC, etc.) along with their erstwhile allies in the entertainment industry are going out of their way to fuel this panic. As Rahm Rambo Deadfish Emanuel likes to say, “never let a good crisis go to waste!” The Left needs to take a serious “chill pill,” and if they refuse to take it voluntarily, then it should be administered forcefully!
