Well not everything comes from China but yes a lot of products do.
In regards to staying clean and healthy, I suppose toilet paper, paper towels, anti-bacterial products,
are ranking at the top of store products.
Still, I would guess to say, most people in the USA are looking at this virus as a short term
pandemic that will last a few weeks to a month or two. I can see this IS beginning to change
but at the start of the virus, the items to keep ones self clean and household germ free, is
the products that flew off the shelves first. That made sense because like I said, probably
most people in the USA buy enough quantity only to last them one week in normal conditions.
So when this virus hit and people began buying toilet paper and cleaning supplies, it set
the thoughts in motion 'I better buy this now too in case I get sick and need to stay home
for several weeks'.
At least in regards to the USA, that is all people were really buying up, was the cleaning
products/toilet paper/paper towels.
But now, many people in the USA are taking it more seriously and seeing it is something
that could last months or years before a preventive is created. The other items started
flying off the shelves such as beans, oats, rice, and can goods.
The small stores are now beginning to take a hit. Stores in small towns, Dollar General
Stores, etc. We went there today in my town. Many of their products are low or out.
Some items in the USA not hit hard yet in my area (I am in a Southern State), milk,
fresh meat, frozen fish, bread, crackers, junk food.
