I was in Lidl this afternoon. Full shelves and loads of bog roll. I think you'd have to be pretty unreasonable not to have a couple of weeks worth of essentials in just in case you need to self isolate.
Me and the kids are crossing fingers we have to stay at home for a fortnight. As long as we're not ill it will be bliss. But that's because we have chocolate and crisps in our stores too

It seems perfectly sensible to have a few weeks basic supplies. If a large percentage of the population does become infected at once, as seems increasingly possible, then shops/delivery services will likely struggle.
I don't think sensible, reasonable foresight is "panic buying". A bit of light prep now could ease the burden on me and everyone else down the line.
