Maybe those predictions of a post-outbreak baby boom are accurate - it sounds like we're headed for a worldwide condom shortage.

The world's largest condom producer, Karex Bhd in Malaysia, has been closed for the last ten days after a government-ordered shutdown. 

Since they manufacture about 20 percent of the world's supply, it's already led to a shortfall of more than 100 million condoms.

Karex's CEO predicts the shortage could potentially last for months, and says they've applied for a special grant from the government to resume operation.

What other products will be hard to find after the outbreak ends? Have you and your partner been getting amorous during the quarantine?
