There is a surprising increase in the use of e-commerce websites. Flipkart,Amazon have seen increase in sales of essential commodities like detergents,soaps, sanitary products, groceries and packaged food items. Self quarantine and lock down prevents people from stepping outside these led to placing orders online and getting stuff done. Government has allowed people to step out to buy essentials but the risk of contracting the virus as we step out creates havoc.In few grocery stores the owners have run out of products like toilet paper, sugar and soaps. To avoid risking shortage of essential commodities people are stocking up on it.
