With the Coronavirus sweeping the world, certain supermarket items are being restricted.
With COVID 19 spreading across the world, people are being to panic and are now hoarding essential items. Everything from toilet paper (#toiletpapergate) to hand sanitiser are flying off the shelves.

Please Share Your Hoards With Others!
If there’s one thing that has come to light since #toiletpapergate arose is people have become increasingly greedy. This is very different to what we saw during bushfires where people were actually helping each other! Now, we seeing people fighting over loo rolls like it’s a rare necessity. Then other things like hand sanitiser go flying off the shelves like it’s Black Friday sale.
If you have too much of one product *cough* Toilet Paper *cough* please give some to your neighbours, friends, and family. Basically, people who actually need it. What are you going to do with 150 roles of toot paper? Wrap yourself it and make yourself a mummy?
Stop thinking about yourselves for five seconds and think about the people who go to the supermarket and go about their everyday lives. Also, please don’t do what some people do and send their kids in to get more when they’ve already got their share.
We need to be kind to each other and to do this, we need to stop panic buying. It’s not the end of the world.
