Panic Buying Rampage Across America Calls For Solidarity Among Consumers

People across America are stockpiling and getting multi-packs of pasta, water, frozen food and toilet paper rolls which raises grave concern about the equal share of goods among households.


 

A wave of panic shopping across America occurred after Donald Trump declared a national emergency on Friday from Rose Garden. The same day, disappointed shoppers from across America posted on twitter the scenes they've encountered when they arrived at their local stores. 

This weekend, in Washington D.C. it was impossible to get anything at Trader’s Joe.

People are stockpiling and getting multi-packs of pasta, water, frozen food and toilet rolls which raises grave concern for the equal share of goods among households. Those who have credit cards or cash could purchase large amounts of food and toilet paper but what about those who can’t afford to shop for large supplies? Now, they are stuck with empty shelves and the Trump administration should establish quotas as to how much people can buy.

As a war survivor, opera singer Nevena Bridgen and the wife of Andrew Bridgen has given a bit of public advice as to what essentials to buy in response to the evolving coronavirus crisis in Britain.

 

 

 

The rise in demand in certain products such as antibacterial products, face masks, hand sanitizers, and toilet paper is triggering the alarm across the nation. 

Why can’t factories make enough hand sanitizers? What the supermarket chains should do is to limit purchase on certain products so everyone can get what they need. No one needs 40 packages of toilet paper in one purchase. 

During the time of the coronavirus crisis, people should now, more than ever express solidarity and consideration for others so that all people have an opportunity to purchase the food and essentials they need. 

The surge in panic buying has only one effect: the general surge in fear and panic across the nation. Paracetamol and other supplies the shops should sell only at one package at the time. These types of practices in America have to become the norm. Before going into a survival mode, commit yourself to solidarity and only buy what you need.
