Nintendo has released an official statement in regards to product shortages in Japan brought about by the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus. You can take a look at a translated version of the statement from their official website here:

Thank you very much for your patronage of our products.

Due to the new coronavirus infection that is currently occurring, it is expected that production and shipment delays will be inevitable for peripheral devices such as the Nintendo Switch and Joy-Con manufactured in China for the Japanese domestic market. Similarly, shipments of the currently out-of-stock “Ring Fit Adventure” are expected to be delayed.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

We will work hard to deliver the product as soon as possible, while keeping an eye on the effects of the new coronavirus infection, and we look forward to your understanding.
