This was reported to RIA Novosti by representatives of the market for means of survival and self-defense.
Rising S Company founder Clyde Scott said that with the worsening situation with the coronavirus, people began to think more and more about building shelters. He called the current surge in bunker interest unprecedented.
“Never before have we seen growth in shelter sales due to medical reasons. Usually, our sales depend on political actions that can lead to infringement of freedoms or civil and social unrest, ”Scott added.
The most inexpensive one-room bunker, which produces the Rising S Company, costs 39.5 thousand dollars (almost 3.1 million rubles). The largest option with a sauna, a room for plants, a pool, a billiard room and a garage for several cars will cost the buyer $ 8 million (more than 627 million rubles).
“A guarantee of safety, readiness is more reliable than“ insurance ”, which is help only after you have already suffered losses. Our decision is, first of all, to prevent this loss, ”he said.
Davis noted that building a bunker is a necessary precaution to ensure family safety, and more and more Americans realize this.
Earlier in March, an unprecedented demand for luxury real estate was reported amid a coronavirus pandemic. Experts claimed that the rich are willing to spend big money, just to be away from the epicenters of the spread of the virus. As a refuge they most often choose Scottish castles, mansions with bunkers or the uninhabited islands of the Caribbean archipelago. To get to places of isolation, wealthy people rent private planes and yachts, which is noticeable in the increased number of deals.
According to a project by Johns Hopkins University, the number of cases of coronavirus infection exceeded 468 thousand, killing more than 800 people.
