    Yes! This is very much a concern of mine. My wife has Type 1 Diabetes and uses an insulin pump. I have no doubt her medical supplies could be disrupted given we our heavy reliance on China's manufacturing. I am unsure how much of her diabetes supplies specifically are dependent upon China however. I don't know what's made and where. I assuming a lot for simplicity.

    However, I had a feeling something like this would happen eventually. This has been on my mind for years. Perhaps, not a pandemic but something that would dangerously disrupt her ability to get her supplies. Therefore, I have been diligent to building up a stash of insulin, needles, strips, insulin pump supplies, insulin, and even paying out of pocket for some critical elements. So, yes, I'm very worried about this internally but my wife less so interestingly. I'm the worrier in the family. With these efforts and stash saved up, we can get by for at least 1 year without going to the pharmacy. It would be cutting it close but it could be doable.

    I agree but let’s get our pharmaceutical companies up to speed before we completely pull the plug.

    We are in a very bad position right now.
