    What areas or certain supply chains are being the hardest hit during the COVID pandemic? Demand-side has to be heavy healthcare needs, lots of cleaning supplies, and frozen/unperishable food. Supply from non-essential businesses has to be limited.

    One of my family members works in the food/agriculture industry and was saying that there’s a supply surplus of farm animals raised for human consumption. One of the main reasons for this is many of the processing plants are shut down, so the animals can’t be processed and stored. Due to these being shut down, slaughterhouses don’t have as many animals moving through them as usual, leading to issues between them and farmers, the main ones being what to do with and where to put the excess animals. The closings and limitations for restaurants and hotels has also reduced demand quite a bit. Some farmers have slowed or stopped breeding, but they are wary of this, because it may lead to a shortage in the future.

    The shipping industry and auto industry have been hit quite hard from the pandemic. Several automakers get their supplies and raw material from china and as a result continuing production is extremely difficult.
