I'm not even sure how much panic buying went on, the problem in the cities is that they suddenly said to millions of people who have 2-3 days of food and supplies most of the time that they need 14 days worth of supplies.

Take the local supermarket in our neighbourhood, it has space for maybe 100 packs of toilet roll, 100kg of flour, etc but serves a neighbourhood of 20k people. Never going to work great.
