Basic drugs like Tylenol, serious drugs for treating cancer, and everything in between are becoming increasingly scarce, the government says. And there is "no cure in sight to these mounting shortages," to quote one news outlet.
Since the beginning of the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) "pandemic," there have been shortages of everything from toilet paper to car parts to furniture to baby formula. The supply chains have been broken for nearly three years now, in other words – and the situation is worsening, not getting better.
With Christmas just weeks away, some consumers worry that their Chinese-made junk might not arrive on time. Then there is the massive inflation at the grocery store, which is making it more difficult for many families to survive.
Now we have drug shortages that, for those addicted to pharmaceuticals, could mean having to cut the habit cold turkey. (Related: Did you know that some pharmaceutical drugs are made from animal venom?)
One of "the scarcest medications in America right now," we are told, is Adderall. Some people use Adderall to fight narcolepsy while others take it recreationally to help them focus or study.
If Adderall supplies dwindle down to general unavailability, millions of Americans will be forced to go without their daily fix.
"Medications used to treat cancer are running low," reported KING in Seattle. "The rise in RSV with children, along with a return of the flu have parents struggling to find Amoxicillin, Tamiflu and Albuterol."
"Anesthetics like Lidocaine are scarce. Ativan used to control seizures and anxiety is hard to come by. Even everyday, over-the-counter (OTC) treatments such as Tylenol are increasingly tough to find."
According to Steve Fijalka, the chief pharmacy officer at University of Washington Medicine, says he worries the United States does not have an adequate drug manufacturing sector – most drugs for America are made in India or China, in case you were not aware.
"Sometimes it's raw materials," Fijalka says about the reasons behind these shortages. "Sometimes it's a business decision. Some of these medications just aren't worth it for certain companies to make anymore."
"There are manufacturing issues. We don't have that many manufacturing plants in the U.S."
There is also a shortage of some medications related to the Fauci Flu, according to the FDA. The agency says it "continues to take steps to monitor the supply chain," but that there is not necessarily anything that can be done to fix these ongoing problems.
"The Drug Shortage Staff within the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) has asked manufacturers to evaluate their entire supply chain, including active pharmaceutical ingredients, finished dose forms, and any components that may be impacted in any area of the supply chain due to the COVID-19 outbreak," the FDA says.
In a statement, the agency added that drug shortages "can occur for many reasons, including manufacturing and quality problems, delays, and discontinuations."
"Manufacturers provide FDA most drug shortage information, and the agency works closely with them to prevent or reduce the impact of shortages," the FDA maintains.
In February 2021, the Biden regime executed Executive Order 14017, which supposedly attempts to address these supply chain disruptions. It appears as though that EO was a bust.
It turns out that the vast majority of America's supply of ibuprofen, hydrocortisone, acetaminophen, penicillin, heparin, and antibiotics come from communist China, which has a "zero covid" lockdown policy in place that results in manufacturing shutdowns every time even just one person tests "positive" for the Chinese Flu.
