For anyone interested in the matrix created by foodways, religious culture and ritual, mass society, and social psychology and object cathexis in particular local contexts, and coronavirus.  Feel free to throw in bio-power. In Israel, this is now a grave matter, this story here and this story here about egg hoarding, egg shortage, egg regulations, egg panic. “Channel 12 reported that 10 cargo planes will be used to bring in the eggs ahead of the Passover festival that starts April 8, noting that there is an estimated shortage of some 30 million eggs. ” I’ll continue to update this post as more articles appear covering the story.
