During this month, the SARS-CoV-2 global pandemic (see Coronavirus disease) causes massive disruption to members' lives as they are compelled to stay home by the government in attempts to control the rate of spreading of the virus. Some members get sick and some members are financially affected. Panic buying starting around March 12 creates global disruption of supplies like disposable paper cleaning products and non-perishable foods. Additionally virtually all schools and childcare facilities close by the 16th.
