If you've placed an order on Amazon while self-isolating at home – you could be waiting for your item much longer than expected.

One of the primary perks of the annual Amazon membership scheme is free next-day delivery on thousands of items fulfilled by Amazon.

Amazon is prioritising warehouse space for essential items, like household goods and medical supplies.

On a newly-launched webpage about the impact the coronavirus could have on its delivery service, Amazon states: "Our teams are working to ensure we can continue to deliver to the most affected customers, many of whom have no other way to get essential items.

We are prioritising the intake and dispatch of items most needed by our customers right now.
