hoarders breed hoarders, it's a snowball affect. if folks
would just buy what they need it wouldn't create shortages
for others. panic and fear is promoting greed and selfishness.

I'm more concerned about the economic impacts this virus is causing than the health issues. Look at the markets, more people are losing millions of dollars than there are people that will die directly. Business is being disrupted, markets falling.

The financial fallout is what will likely be remembered.

Sooo, I got my haircut today and my girl told me that our toilet paper comes from China, sooo that is the big panic... I did a little research on that ( I am from Oregon and I remember a few Paper mills around) and turns out less than 10% of our TP comes from China.. America has over 150 paper mills.......

I'd say misinformed. Way too many get their news from the mainstream media. Or worse, Farcebook.
Correct, Jon Paper was just fine, until that dam media said one state was running short on it then all hell broke loose for it, Dam Media.

The horders and price gougers are starting to become a concern to me. Meats are out of stock, bread, cleaning supplies, etc. Getting concerned that two or three weeks I won't be able to buy another pack of toilet paper, we have enough for a few weeks right now and I hope the stupidity/insanity will fade by then. But regular groceries are going to be an issue before then, last time we were at the store we bought a normal amount of stuff, now our governor has raised the insanity level and its getting far worse. I'm betting rationing at the end of a firearm is not far away.

Just think of the collateral damage... Business's will be locking their restrooms to the public because of the toilet paper shortage!
Check this out!

The unemployment rate will skyrocket. Norwegian Airlines has laid off 3,000 people. It will be a trickle down effect. People in the big city will be hardest hit with unemployment, food shortages, evictions and homelessness. The ones with guns should stockpile ammo for hunting squirrels in Central Park. There won't be deer roaming your neighborhood anymore.

All stocked up. We have chickens and the deer here are pretty much domesticated. They wander into my yard so close I can take one with a rock. Not skeered of nuthin!
