The order has been relatively straight forward: Americans started panic hoarding 3M N-95 masks as early as mid-January, then loaded up on food and medical supplies in the last several weeks, including water, non-perishables, bleach, and Purell. Now it appears the next run has started, that is, immunity-boosting supplements as the Covid-19 virus crisis has morphed into a pandemic, expected to worsen in the weeks ahead. 

Take, for example, Airborne Vitamin C 1000mg tablets (36 count box), currently unavailable from the Amazon seller Airborne, with other sellers making up the product over 100% from suggested retail price of about $16. This suggests, Americans are panic buying dietary supplements to boost their immune systems amid the virus outbreak. 

Another dietary supplement to boost the immune system is Immune Support Packets, "currently unavailable" on the Amazon store via designs for health.

Here's Rainbow Light Counter Attack, a product that supports immune system health, "currently unavailable" on the Rainbow Light's Amazon store. 

Panic hoarding products are evolving on a weekly basis. Last week Purell, this week it is immunity-boosting supplements. And the panic is for a good reason: Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, was quoted by Reuters on Friday morning as saying, "the next few weeks, for most Americans, what you're going to see is an acceleration of cases."

And with that being said, what do Americans panic hoard next week? Weapons and ammunition? Well, that has already started…
