PANIC BUYING – WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?

DON'T LET SELFISHNESS AND GREED
SPREAD FASTER THAN COVID-19
STOP panic buying!!!!

What on earth is happening?!?!?!? Have people gone nuts? What’s happened to common sense? Have we become a nation of idiots?

It’s 12th March 2020 and for the past couple of weeks, there have been a few instances of what is known as corona virus or COVID-19, in the UK.

Is British society really so fickle that at times like these, we act like lemmings? Selfish, greedy people buying up anything and everything with complete disregard for the elderly and vulnerable in our society.

Here is some empirical data which we'll try to maintain over the next few weeks.

What's happening is quite unprecedented but there's no need what so ever to panic, let alone panic buy. We all need to think of other and not just ourselves. There are people out there, people in our community, who can't buy hundreds of toilet rolls or bottles of sanitiser. Can we all just calm down and sit tight?
