In a news article posted by Bloomberg, Nintendo discussed the possibility of a worldwide shortage of Switch consoles, stating the following:

“We do not see any major impact on the shipment to the U.S. currently, but we will remain vigilant and take steps if necessary,” a Nintendo spokesperson told Bloomberg News. “It’s possible the supply would be affected by the virus if it becomes more widespread and prolonged.”

As of now, Switch shipments for February and March have already been dispatched from Asia, but its definitely possible we may see some shortages in the future if the virus outbreak continues.
