articles about supply chains and Covid-19

Here is what I’ve been reading about supply chains in the COVID19 era:

  1. Vox on food and meat supply chains
  2. Why there are toilet paper shortages
  3. The Society for Risk Analysis recorded a webinar called “COVID Conversations on Risk” (Ep 3) about food security
  4. The Washington Post on why meat supply chains are vulnerable to Covid-19 outbreaks: they are massive facilities with thousands of workers in close proximity 
  5. Why you can expect shortages of pharmeceuticals but not toilet paper (nice job, Anna Nagurney)
  6. On personal protective equipment (PPE) supply chains
    1. Read about the origins of the Strategic National Stockpile
    2. CDC guidance for optimizing supply chains
    3. The Washington Post reports on a factory that produces a chemical used in PPE
  7. The modern supply chain is snapping from The Atlantic. Note this came out a month ago.
  8. We need a stress test for critical supply chains (nice job David and Edith Simchi-Levi)
  9. And finally, Belgians are urged to eat French fries at least twice a week as changes in consumption during the pandemic lead to a massive potato surplus
