Looking at Amazon sales is an interesting way to look at the response to things like the COVID-19 outbreak. I think this article could have done more investigation into the response or compared it to what grocery stores are running out of etc. It also provides a bit of information on how Amazon is responding to this behavior along with the behavior of the sellers. Overall though there is not that much on any one topic.

This is a fairly surface-level article that provides some useful information, but mostly just reiterates public knowledge on the coronavirus coupled with a few Amazon screenshots. I was and am still interested in what people are buying up right now and wish the article went into more depth on the things people are buying up during this moment of global panic.
