    Part of it is hoarding, in case of being quarantined.........and part of it, is profiteers,   buying up the entire supply, thinking they  will make a killing   jacking up the price for  rare supplies on Ebay. 

    They already have busted people trying to sell surgical masks at ridiculously inflated prices. 

    There's always some  worms  who try to milk any situation. 

    I remember Hurricane Sandy......when they were handing out free supplies to people who lost  everything........and people pulled up in their SUV's  and loaded up their trucks.....and drove back to their untouched mansions......and then tried selling the stuff, at flea markets.

    if they run out of food they can eat the toilet paper, but if they run out of toilet paper they are doomed.

    Because they are stupid and unhygienic.
