Health Industry Distributors’ Association: Supply Chain Delays ‘A Healthcare Issue’

Published

on

supply chain

The Health Industry Distributors’ Association (HIDA) released harrowing data stating “Transportation Delays Are A Healthcare Issue.” HIDA’s December release states, “research estimates that approximately 8,000-12,000 containers of critical medical supplies are delayed an average of up to 37 days throughout the transportation system.”

The statement continues, “The West Coast port with the greatest number of delayed medical containers are the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. The most congested East Coast port is the Port of Savannah.”

An infographic is accompanied with the statement which breaks down the crisis further. 17 is the average number of days the shipments are delayed at the Port. There’s an 11 day average delay by rail, and a 9 day average delay by truck.

In those shipping containers, the infographic states 187,000 gowns, 360,000 syringes and 3.5 million surgical gloves are held. The ports with the most medical delayed supplies are Los Angeles/Long Beach, Savannah, New York/New Jersey, Charleston, Seattle, Oakland, Boston, Baltimore and Houston.

Axios reports under a “Why it matters” headline, that “Per their projections, medical supplies arriving at a U.S. port on Christmas Day won’t be delivered to hospitals and other care settings until February 2022.”

As a result, “that could delay critical supplies at a time when health care is already expected to most need them due to surges from Delta and Omicron.”

Additionally, “The supply chain problems can compound, starting with medical supplies languishing in U.S. ports for an average of 17 days, officials said.”

    You must be mistaken, because President Biden was on TV over a week ago telling us he had solved the backup in getting the ship-port-customer delivery problem by getting the unions to keep the system running 24 hours a day. He did not mention the backlog of empty shipping containers clogging the docks, but I’m sure our efficient WH has that problem solved as well. He also did not mention the bevy restrictions CA has on the trucking industry, but again no problem. (sarcasm)

    Millions of people are not working who should be. They are not producing anything, not distributing anything and contrary to what the left thinks, there is no magic incantation that can get goods to purchasers and by the time they do the shortages will have increased inflation even more.

    So… these supplies are coming from where? …China?….and what about the medicines that don’t seem to have been considered?

    So long as they come from China we can expect more of this. You can’t give so much controlling power to a country that hates us and not expect something like this.

HOA Fines FL Congressional Candidate for ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ Christmas Light Display

Each day he keeps the display up, he is fined $150

Martin Hyde Christmas Light Display e1640203518474

It’s Christmas meets politics in a beautiful “Let’s go Brandon” light display in Florida. The Christmas lights display is at the home of Martin Hyde, a former professional soccer player and current business owner, and a Republican who is campaigning against the state’s 16th congressional district against current Trump-backed Representative Vern Buchanan.

Each day he keeps the display up, he is fined $150, according to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. Hyde’s display caught the attention of his homeowner’s association which the Tribune reports sent Hyde a “friendly reminder” that signs aren’t permitted and then “dangled the possibility of a $150-a-day fine if he doesn’t comply.”

Each lit letter is nine inches tall, sitting on his second-story balcony of his Sarasota home above an American flag light display and next to an inflatable Santa Claus. “It’s fully in keeping with my personality and my campaign,” said Hyde. “Anybody who doesn’t like it, it’s one street…don’t come.” Hyde said, “did I know it was provocative? Absolutely. Did I expect it to take on this level? No.”

“I’ll take it down when it suits me” says Hyde, who has been endorsed by Trump’s first national security advisor, Michael Flynn. Hyde also hired Roger Stone, a former Trump advisor, as a campaign consultant.

Hyde, who is a Trump supporter, has said he will keep the display up through Christmas regardless of HOA fines posed on him. “They may well fine me $150 a day. It’s not really a terrible concern to me. I will take it down when the holidays are over. I’ll take it down when it suits me.”
