This is quite correct namaha as there's a big diference in buying lots of things creating a temporary shortage and being prepared.

It's the fear of the unknown that causes irrational behaviour when the more that we do to protect ourselves will help protect others and thats how we will beat this.

Normally, People are well known for their discipline... They are not selfish... but Covid19 has created such a panic that now people would like to take care of themselves..... My daughter from Germany has sent me a massage that all the goods such as sanitizers, soaps both solid and liquid, tissue paper, All kind of detergents have disappeared from the supermarkets.....

Just it is a man made disaster.. ...

Yesterday , I was laughing at you when came out with a natural recipe for sanitizer at home....

Hello namaha the same is happening here in the UK it started in the cities and now my local supermarket is sold out of hand soap sanitisers toilet rolls pasta and flour...

This is why I posted the sanitiser recipe as the ingredients are still available.

I wish If you people were nearby, I would have sent you such items in plenty.. no issue here yet...

Even no need to physically go to supermarket..... All door delivered by order on line through apps and with a discount for ordering on line .... and all on credit... To be paid at our convenience after 2 months..... for Saving fuel by avoiding to travel to a store and reducing carbon foot print...

I ordered @ 9 AM and got it delivered within hours.....

And there are on line stores apps like Amazon and many such stores through which a person from a city 'A' can order items to be delivered at a city 'B' which is at 2000 kms away from city A . The only condition is both A and B need to be in the same country.. ... Distance immaterial......

It is painful to see that in places like UK, Germany even grains like wheat , pasta, noddles, rice, Pulses , groceries are sold out.............and we are not able to help......

.......I am told all of a sudden all people are chasing the vegetables, Grains and legumes, nobody wants to take chance though nothing is scientifically proven as of now from where exactly the virus coming.... people are just panic by seeing the rate at which it is attacking the whole world without any discrimination...even in my own coutry there are no takers poultry, egg , and other meat product- the livestock sale has nose dived....

May be we are bit comfortable to deal with the enemy virus perhaps because of the warmer climate and the Sun God .. .....now the temp is 37 degree , sunny.. and corona is bit uncomfortable to spread its wings! But we are keeping our fingers crossed... ... it seems as of now Nobody can stop the virus spreading if it wants to take revenge ☹️
