Shopping during the COVID-19 panic

Just did my weekly shop, as usual. Made some observations what with the COVID-19 panic going around:

  • Far busier than normal, at this time of day/week.
  • Sanitary items were out of stock, as expected, but things like porridge oats were all gone, too (bar the expensive brand).
  • Lots more people at self checkout than actual manned checkouts.

I didn’t touch anything I didn’t have to (including my face), and washed my hands with soap and hot water when I got back. I’ll be safe for another day...! (Right?)
