Poll: More People Worried About Supply Chain and Vacation than COVID-19 Over Holidays; Cargo Ship Backup Worsens After Biden Attempts to Untangle Supply Chain, and other C-Virus related stories

More people worried about supply chain and vacation than COVID-19 over holidays: Poll:
COVID-19 isn't the biggest concern for many this holiday season, as more households in the United States are worried about the supply chain and labor shortages in the run-up to the holidays.
A recent survey conducted with 1,106 U.S. residents found that 38% are concerned about contracting COVID-19 over the holidays. Meanwhile, 40% said they were concerned the labor shortage would prevent them from taking time off, according to the survey conducted by CouponFellow.
Both of these numbers are markedly lower than the 50% of people surveyed who said they were concerned about issues with the global supply chain.
Concerns about the supply chain are not unfounded, as a record 111 container ships sat in the waters surrounding the ports in Los Angeles and Long Beach as of Nov. 12. --->READ MORE HERE

Cargo ship backup worsens after Biden attempts to untangle supply chain:
The throng of container ships anchored off the coast of Southern California grew by 43% since President Biden’s announcement a month ago that the ports there would start working around the clock and ease supply chain woes.
A record 83 cargo ships sat off the coast Friday awaiting offload at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, according to data from the Marine Exchange of Southern California. That’s 25 more than the 58 container ships in the backup than when Mr. Biden made his announcement in mid-October.
When making the announcement, he said the longer hours at the ports would help keep the store shelves stocked for holiday shopping.
“Today we have some good news: We’re going to help speed up the delivery of goods all across America,” he said when announcing 24-hour port operations on Oct. 13. He also said the ports were just part of the supply chain problem but vowed to make progress sooner rather than later.
The White House did not respond to questions about the lack of progress at the ports. --->READ MORE HERE
