COVID-19 lockdown shuts world’s top condom producer; shortage looms

Malaysia’s Karex Bhd, the world’s biggest condom producer, has said that a global shortage of condoms is looming after a COVID-19 lockdown forced it to shut down production. Karex produces 20% of condoms globally. It has not produced a single condom from its three Malaysian factories for more than a week due to a lockdown. The company was given permission to restart 50% production on Friday.

That was the plan all along. Create a new baby boom by panicking us and forcing us to stay and home and frick, then slowly withdrawing birth control options. BAM! No more epopulation collapse!

Well if Europe needs anything at all, it needs a baby boom. Family formation is the most important thing Europeans need for stabilizing their economies and domestic politics. Plus no need for medieval-mentality migrants. Everybody wins!

Latex is out of supply because of latex gloves. 9 months later, hospitals are going to be over capacity again, this time in maternity ward.

I thought people didn't use condoms anymore since getting abortions are seen as a normal thing.
