This is not the time to go on a buying spree on Amazon, as the online giant announced it is suspending all ‘non-essential’ items. By prioritizing medical goods, groceries and baby formula it hopes to keep up with demand.
With many cities under lock-down, this comes at a welcome time.
Amazon also announced it was hiring 100,000 more employees to meet the demands.
Toilet paper and cleaning supplies are still on back-order on the site.
