Panic buying ensues in Hawaii, other places, as coronavirus fears grow in U.S.

Hawaii residents fear the worst and prepare ahead of anticipated COVID-19 outbreak

HONOLULU (INTELLIHUB) — Hawaii residents have started to prepare for the localized clustering of the deadly SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus and human to human spread following President Donald Trump’s White House press briefing on Thursday.

Shoppers at Costco quickly cleared out the store’s bottled water and toilet paper isles and headed for the checkout where they were forced to wait in a long line.

Similar runs on stores have been reported to be happening in California and Arizona.
