    Default New fears of coronavirus related global shortages

    "Fears of global condom shortage amid coronavirus

    here are fears about the long-term implications of a global condom shortage after the world's largest manufacturer was forced to stop production due to the coronavirus outbreak.

    Karex Berhad's three factories in Malaysia have been shut for 10 days already, meaning there are already 100 million fewer condoms, the company's chief executive Goh Miah Kiat told news agency Reuters.

    The company, which produces one in five of the world's condoms, is now appealing to the Malaysian government for a partial exemption from a nationwide lockdown.

    The country is the worst affected in South-East Asia, with 2,161 coronavirus infections and 26 deaths.

    But without being able to reopen, Mr Goh said there would be a "global shortage" of condoms, which could potentially impact "a lot of humanitarian programmes... for months".

    What's more, he added, demand "is still very strong", which is no bad thing "given that at this point in time people are probably not planning to have children".

    "It’s not the time, with so much uncertainty.”

    Karex supplies companies like Durex and organisations like the NHS and the UN Population Fund."

    Don't worry ATW.

    The 3-pack you bought in 1996 should be more than enough to get you through.

    Most people don’t have sex with partners as much as they do with lovers, and with lockdown = no lover sex or 3-somes or orgies (if anyone wants a laugh - google fabswingers forums (not from client pc) to see how swinger people are not having sex either)

    Just buy a pair of rubber gloves and cut the little finger off and use that.

    One day he may even get to open it...
    His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...
