Which products are the Amazon best sellers during the COVID19 Coronavirus pandemic?

(Yes I know, we are usually more of a travel site than a lifestyle one, but we also have to focus on what is most relevant in the world right now!)

People all over the world are ordering food, equipment, clothing, kids toys and anything else imaginable from Amazon at an incredible rate in response to the COVID19 coronavirus pandemic.

While the sudden increase in online shopping as the majority of people stay at home has put a strain on most online retailers, Amazon has hired a huge amount of new workers to keep up with demand.

It’s not only preserved food, hand sanitiser and face masks that have seen a massive increase in sales though. Since so many people are stuck at home and have to find ways to pass the time, they are ordering everything from games, homewares, DIY and home improvement, furniture, puzzles, board games and so much much more!

Just think of all those long-avoided jobs that are finally getting done, simply because there is nothing else to do and nowhere to go!

Here is a look at the best-selling lists from Amazon so you can see what everyone else is buying to stay safe, sane and active during these strange and difficult times. These are the most popular products from the biggest categories on Amazon right now:

The massive increase in the sale of baby wipes has to be hygiene-related, because there’s no way the lockdown has already made that many new babies in just one month!
