Yeah.

Globally we are still very much in the middle of the pandemic.  Many months are going to go by before much of the developing world has needed access to the vaccines.  India just hit 100 thousand cases in a single day (only other country to do that was the USA under Trump), and Brazil is having serious trouble.

We may be heading towards price inflation as the developed world wants more products but the developing countries are still suffering and aren't able to supply the demand.

I'm seeing reports of severe shortages of truck drivers of all types.  A couple of small, rural towns in eastern NC have had gasoline shortages because there were no drivers to deliver.  Headlines say there is a bidding war going on and some drivers are getting high-$$$. 

Hampton Roads residents notice recycling pickup delay, officials say shortage of drivers is to blame

I was at the dentist today.  The dental hygienist told me that there is a shortage of hygienists now because so may have decided on changing to new carriers because of Covid.
