Hoarding toilet paper amid the coronavirus: Why are people doing it?

People are crowding grocery stores to stockpile food and supplies during the coronavirus pandemic that’s infected 11,000 people in the United States. But one item remains bizarrely elusive: toilet paper.

Although the White House said "...It is unnecessary for the American public to hoard daily essentials” and the National Grocers Association told ABC News that products like toilet paper “may be more limited in terms of availability but are flowing through the supply chain," both brick-and-mortar and online retailers are routinely cleaned out of the product.

The demand has forced stores into capping purchases at a certain number (with employees supervising the chaos) and restaurants like The Beacon Tap in Chicago, which pivoted to curbside take-out and delivery, to now offer toilet paper as a customer incentive. Police in Newport, Ore., have even scolded residents who call 911 to report toilet paper shortages. “It’s hard to believe that we even have to post this,” read a Facebook post by the department. Meanwhile, sales of bidets, which cleanse with sprayed water, are reportedly increasing.
