Switch sales in Japan slowed down by 20% from the week prior, it might due to the shortages as a result of the coronavirus . I really hope this doesn't affect the Switch sales long term

How would it have long term effect? any pent up demand from shortages will be satisfied shortly after supply stabilizes.
