NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- New Yorkers have spent the last few days stocking up on groceries, surgical masks, hand sanitizer and anything else they think they'll need that will be in short supply if the coronavirus outbreak worsens, leading to empty supermarket shelves and sold-out online retailers.

Same-day delivery services MaxDelivery and FoodKick are sold out of hand sanitizer, for example.
