Since March, the domestic epidemic has broken out again. More than half of the provinces have confirmed cases of the new crown, with the most serious areas in Jilin and Shanghai.
At present, the number of confirmed cases in Shanghai is increasing by nearly 1,000, and the number of asymptomatic infections is increasing by more than 20,000. The situation is not optimistic. Of course, this outbreak also involves Shandong Province, with confirmed cases in 15 cities. As the main ginger-producing area, Weifang has not been able to escape this epidemic.
Although the local ginger market is still trading now, the overall transaction is not active. On the one hand, ginger farmers are still reluctant to sell because the price is too low; on the other hand, because the busy farming season has not yet ended, ginger farmers have no intention of selling goods; on the other hand, due to the blockade of some areas due to the epidemic, they cannot go to the market to sell goods.
Now the prices of vegetables and other foods in the market have risen compared to some time ago, and vegetables in the producing areas can only be sold cheaply. The epidemic has affected production and sales, with high-speed closures in some areas and poor logistics and transportation. At the same time, logistics and transportation costs have also begun to rise.
