what i can tell you:

that they are working non-stop to get these products to those who need them asap

try to do the things that we know can minimize risk and transmission

My inner cynic needed to read this.
I'm not into hyping the virus; its dangerous enough. Its the disgust I feel over the gaps in our public logistics and the need to profit skim at every step ... just breaks my heart. 
*sigh* Be well too; especially traveling.

"Robot-made" would be an excellent selling point, but only "hand-made" vodka could work as hand sanitizer - logically, right?

Sorry, but the virus will wave over the continent long before all politicians, hospital and insurance lobbies figure it all 'out.'
Individual and State's rights have usurped many policies of the fed. The U.S. Congress can't even pass a reasonable immigration bill for the last 30 years. Every politician and mini-serfdom (State) has solid ideas of what should be done and compromise has become blasphemy.  Tests won't be evenly distributed, many still will refuse testing or quarantine due to unease about medical bills. No one is on the same page. Conclusion: We're on our own.

The Spanish flu (1918-20): The global impact of the largest influenza pandemic in history

Pasted bit with emphasis added:

They are not the same disease and the virus causing these diseases are very different. The virus that causes COVID-19 is a coronavirus, not an influenza virus that caused the Spanish flu and the other influenza pandemics listed above.

The age-specific mortality seems to be very different. As we’ve seen above, the Spanish flu in 1918 was especially dangerous to infants and younger people. The new coronavirus that causes COVID-19 appears to be most lethal to the elderly, based on early evidence in China.20

But it is true that the world today is much better connected. In 1918 it was railroads and steamships that connected the world. Today planes can carry people and viruses to many corners of the world in a very short time.

Differences in health systems and infrastructure also matter. The Spanish flu hit the world in the days before antibiotics were invented; and many deaths, perhaps most, were not caused by the influenza virus itself, but by secondary bacterial infections. Morens et al (2008) found that during the Spanish flu “the majority of deaths … likely resulted directly from secondary bacterial pneumonia caused by common upper respiratory–tract bacteria.”21
 
Um, pretty much happy talk to investors 


FACT: U.S. no longer manufactures penicillin. It, along with 20+ other commonly prescribed antibiotics, are made in China.


FDA cites shortage of drugs

“Our whole industry is in one way or other way connected with China, but you would expect us to be much better placed.”Experts believe China is also the only maker of key ingredients in a class of decades-old antibiotics known as cephalosporins, which treat a range of bacterial infections, including pneumonia.
“The antibiotic supply chain is becoming increasingly fragile, even without a global epidemic centered in the major manufacturing location,” said Dan Diekema, director of infectious diseases at the University of Iowa Healthcare, a hospital. “If we were to have major disruptions that caused shortages of several antibiotics at once, it would challenge our ability to adapt.”

We’ve also seen above that during the Spanish flu many countries tried to suppress any information about the influenza outbreak. Today the sharing of data, research, and news is certainly not perfect, but very different and much more open than in the past.

But it is true that the world today is much better connected. In 1918 it was railroads and steamships that connected the world. Today planes can carry people and viruses to many corners of the world in a very short time.
