(ModernSurvival.org) – Most world governments want their citizens to be moderately prepared for a crisis. Even the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have guidelines they urge Americans to follow for emergency preparedness. While this might be normal in most cases, the Ministry of Commerce in China just released an emergency warning instructing people to start stockpiling essential supplies.
The cause of the official notification comes as COVID-19 infection rates are increasing and extreme weather has damaged crops in the country, causing the price of vegetables to skyrocket.
While these seem like good enough reasons to tell people to stock up on essential items, there are also rising tensions in Taiwan to consider. With the nation set on reclaiming Taiwan, and threatening all those who would stand in their way, telling people to prepare prior to a military strike would make sense.
According to BBC News, citizens in the People’s Republic of China began panic buying following the notice. This prompted state media to attempt to ease concerns by publishing newspapers telling people “not to be alarmed.”
Regardless of what may have led the Chinese government to issue the notice, the fact remains that those who live outside of China should take notice. Considering the number of products exported from the country, an emergency declaration there could easily be a sign of problems to come abroad.
In fact, there are already signs of bigger issues developing here in America. To see one major indicator that problems are brewing, take a look at our article here.
