So, although "everyone" is confined to home, "everyone" can go to the shops; plus shopworkers, delivery drivers can travel to their place of work; and presumably (?) healthcare workers can travel to/from work; as can electricity, water, sewage workers... a total lockdown on everybody just doesn't exist in a modern society. A similar situation in the UK; people still allowed to go to the shops, to travel for medical treatment, to work in "key" sectors, (plus allowed a daily outing for exercise purposes). The streets are quiet for sure, but some residential roads are actually busier than normal, as people walk/run the streets instead of driving to the gym or getting exercise through their work.

As for "stocking up"; in our household tinned / dried foods are an "extra". We tend to eat meals consisting of some meat/fish and plenty of fresh veg. We drink fresh milk and use it on/in cereals. We snack on fresh (seasonal) fruit. We do bake our own bread and perhaps should have had more flour "in stock" than we did. (The "panic" buying I did was to buy some additional seeds for veg later in the year, but we have the luxury of a garden large enough to grow veg that arguably could support us through later summer and autumn; just as well as the garden centres are now closed). We have some frozen stuff of course, and an inventory of everything shows that, apart from fresh milk, we probably don't really need to shop for 3 weeks. But by then our stocks will be near-zero and we'll be dependent on the shops having stuff to sell, which is far from certain. Exiting this strategy of "lockdown" is going to be the biggest challenge yet Frown | :-(
