As was said in another post when the reorder stocks arrive the buying will be slower as the TP paranoid use up their horde.
Yeah, it’s back at Publix this morning too, and they put a limit on how much you can buy.

I even asked the cashier, what’s with the toilet paper scare? He had no idea. Really, people are cranky in the stores. Our town right now is not so friendly. Sad everyone is in such a panic

This mass panic for TP and other items is ridiculous. This all is a major reaction due to the media blowing it out of context. Yes it is serious but so was the swine flu and SARS and other virus. I am in the supply chain industry and almost all the factories in China are back at work at some capacity. Workers are being allowed to return to work on a daily basis. By the way I buy TP that is made in American. Maybe we all should buy MADE IN AMERICA products.

I think global TP hoarding has now elevated itself to cult status. Perhaps we should make a movie----"The Rocky Horror TP Show", or "Night of the Living Dead Empty TP Shelves" Of course, it will be a box office flop since the theaters are closed

It was insane.
Diarrhea IS a symptom of the Coronavirus! Google it. It's all over the news.

As a former over the road truck driver, I hauled anything and everything you could imagine. The one constant was JIT inventory, just in time. That's been the new way of doing business for most companies for many years. The theory of tying up your assets in inventory has been replaced by JIT. So, when stores don't have any back inventory what happens? The distribution centers can't get inventory to the stores quickly enough as they are almost always waiting for the next truck to show up, JIT. I've seen weather and traffic delays shut down various assembly lines because there was no inventory to keep it going. I've sat and waited out hurricanes and major snow storms to bring items to those distribution centers that were completely empty. Many paper manufactures have loaded trailers full of inventory just sitting waiting to be delivered. Most plants don't shut down they just keep pumping out their products but many items just sit in trailers waiting to be delivered.

I made my own hand sanitizer -- used isopropyl alcohol 91% and added a small amount of hand lotion in a small spray bottle. Shook it up and it works great. I checked with a Publix pharmacist and he said that would be fine as long as the alcohol level was at least 60%.
