Now we’ve done it. Since almost everything on the shelves in local stores is gone and out of stock because of panicked buying, people have turned to Amazon. So now Amazon’s out of stock and are warning customers that their deliveries are going to be delayed as the coronavirus outbreak continues to spread.
In a statement, Amazon said: “In particular, you will notice that we are currently out of stock on some popular brands and items, especially in household staples categories.” Amazon has also included a note at the top of its website telling customers “inventory and delivery may be temporarily unavailable due to increased demand. Confirm availability at checkout.”
