my missus bought a jumbo pack of toilet paper a couple of weeks before the stupidity hit,
that's the way she's always bought it when it gets low.
we're still on that same pack, and still have not bought anymore since that one.

you'd expect in Singapore where everything is imported, almost zero local production of anything (because there is no place to grow / make stuff, certainly no trees to pulp.)

nothing has run out, we still get beef and milk from Australia, we still get vegetables, fruit and pork from Malaysia, fruit from places as far away as NZ and Denmark, coffee and paper (toilet included) from Indonesia, even iphones from USA ...even when there was a bit of a run, such as happened with rice, the shops simply replied by restocking even faster than it sold.

it's not war, supply chains weren't artificially/forcibly cut, what's the worry?

me & the missus ain't stocking up nothing. not interested in eating stale crap for the rest of the year because we panic bought anything in a tin.
pestilence [ pes-tl-uh ns ] noun
