If you are a fan of Wendy’s, you may struggle to get your hands on a burger during the coronavirus pandemic. According to reports, Wendy’s locations have been running out of burgers and removing them from the menu due to a beef shortage in the United States.
“Some of our menu items may be in short supply from time to time at some restaurants in this current environment,” Wendy’s said in a statement, according to Restaurant Business.
“We expect this to be temporary, and we’re working diligently to minimize the impact to our customers and restaurants.”

The coronavirus mainly comes from animals and a majority of those who were infected early either worked at or frequently visited the Huanan seafood wholesale market in Wuhan, according to The Guardian. The virus is similar to Severe acute respiratory syndrome (Sars) and Middle Eastern respiratory syndrome (Mers).
The Wuhan coronavirus is transmitted from person to person through “droplet transmission.” That means an infected person can pass the virus by sneezing or coughing on another person as well as by direct contact.
While a majority of the cases have been detected in the United States and China — with more than 69,700 deaths in the United States and more than 1 million confirmed cases — it has now reached many countries around the world. It has also been confirmed in Italy, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, and many other eastern countries.
