Drugstores and supermarkets in Japan experienced a shortage of food items as well as essential supplies and masks amid fears of the outbreak of coronavirus in the country on Saturday.

Supermarket food shelves and aisles displayed a lack of food in light of the current #coronavirus outbreak, with people buying products in bulk in anticipation of a disaster as well as cueing up to buy masks.

In other parts of #Japan, including Tokyo and #Yokohama shortages of cleaning supplies, household goods, toilet papers and tissues have been reported on social media.

Japan was the second country to report a confirmed case of COVID-19 outside China, with more than 200 cases confirmed across Japan so far.
