Coronavirus: California Sees Deadliest Day Yet, Newsom Warns Beachgoers
Gov. Gavin Newsom says there have been 115 deaths from COVID-19 over the past 24 hours in California, the deadliest day in the state thus far.
WATERLOO, Iowa (CBS Local) — As the coronavirus disrupts the meat supply chain, this might be a good time to stock up, experts say.
An explosion of COVID-19 cases is forcing some meat packing plants to shut down, further straining the U.S. meat supply chain and raising fears of potential shortages.
“Meat shortages will be occurring two weeks from now in the retail outlets,” Dennis Smith, a senior account executive at Archer Financial Services, tells Bloomberg. “There is simply no spot pork available. The big box stores will get their needs met, many others will not.”
Tyson Foods on Tuesday said it is closing the company’s largest pork plant, which has 2,800 employees and processes 19,500 hogs a day in Waterloo, Iowa. The shutdown followed an outbreak of at least 180 COVID-19 cases there.
“Despite our continued efforts to keep our people safe while fulfilling our critical role of feeding American families, the combination of worker absenteeism, COVID-19 cases and community concerns has resulted in our decision to stop production,” said Steve Stouffer, group president of Tyson Fresh Meats.
The closure follows other major shutdowns at plants run by Smithfield Foods, JBS USA, and other companies that prop up the country’s meat supply.
Processing plants can be a breeding ground for the virus because many workers spend their day side-by-side.
“We are very close. We can’t use a social distance at that place,” said a man who recovered from COVID-19 who works at Smithfield Foods in South Dakota, where almost 900 employees have tested positive.
The disruptions are cascading through meat supply chains and causing “weird” dislocations for prices, Bloomberg reports. Finished products are surging, while farmers are getting paid much less for animals.

Bitcoin is a valuable cryptocurrency, and it is the most incredible virtual asset to halt a milestone of $65000 in just 11 years. The market cap of bitcoin nears $800 billion despite a cryptocurrency market crash. Since bitcoin is virtual and politically free, there are chances of double spending in the bitcoin complex.

Some people go to marriage counseling if there's a conflict in the relationship. Others deep-fry their spouse's endangered pet fish to teach them a lesson. That's exactly what TikToker @miakurniawan01 did after her husband failed to clean his expensive pet arowana's tank. According to @miakurniawan01, the fish was going to die anyway due to the condition of its tank, so she decided to get back at her husband and tell TikTok about it. The Asian arowana is an endangered species, banned from buying and selling in the United States. But in Indonesia, the rare fish can sell for up to $300,000. The Asian arowana is supposed to bring good luck and prosperity. I can imagine deep-frying one might have the opposite effect. After @miakurniawan01 scaled and cooked the poor fish,...

Hi Jordan Petaia, Is it all right if I call you Jordie even though we haven’t met? Most others seem to, even Dave Rennie so I trust it’s ok. Jordie you’ve been on my Wallaby watching rugby mind for a few years now, and I really felt for you being injured. Actually, your injuries and how that must have felt for you was secondary to my own selfish desire. I just wanted you to get on the field hoping you could unleash some magic to help us beat the All Blacks as you seemed to have that X factor that was missing. Then along came Caleb Clarke and blew us away and I had another case of ‘Lomu déjà vu’, seeing yet another Kiwi winger run over us, through us and even around us. And then something happened. We stopped expecting youth to save us, Dave Rennie got some...

The number of buy-to-let acquisitions made by landlords nearing retirement age increased by more than half following the re-opening of the housing market – more than any other age bracket. There was a 52% increase in buy-to-let purchases made by landlords aged between 60 and 64 in the 12 months to the end of June 2021 compared to the same period the previous year, according to Paragon Bank. However, as a proportion of the overall market, this age bracket remained the second smallest at 5% of buy-to-let purchases. Distinct spike MD Richard Rowntree says the distinct spike could have been prompted by low returns from savings and stock market volatility as older investors looked to boost retirement income. “The pandemic...
