Haha, when people started panic buying, I said "I bet half of it gets thrown away". But now I'm starting to think maybe they had the right idea. They can stay at home rather than go trawling through endless empty supermarkets for a loaf of bread. We were told that there was no shortage of food, but there's obviously some disruption in the supply chain because those shelves are just not getting restocked. My work involves going to major supermarkets before they open and the shelves have been empty for the last fortnight. I've seen the queues building up outside ready for opening, but there's no point because there's nothing to buy.
They're supposed to be producing more of the essential goods, but the problem is whenever the shelf is restocked the human locusts swarm in and strip it bare in minutes. So the shelf is empty and other people see it and panic buy - a vicious circle
we're only allowed out for one piece of exercise per day..... I'm going to go stir crazy in here. Thanks China!
