On 17th March 2020
Coronavirus panic has brought the worst out of people globally. As we see people behaving selfishly, acting like jerks and involved in racist attacks, it feels like there is little hope left for humans. WHO has made it very clear that the most vulnerable age group for this virus is elderly people and those who are immunocompromised.
#1 Woolworths have done a commendable job with their recent announcement
With people buying things in bulk and hoarding on daily life necessities the elderly and disabled people are literally left to fend for themselves at this point. Amid this disappointment and chaos, comes a piece of good news that Woolworths have recently announced.
#2 People continue with their bulk shopping
In Australia, despite the authorities assuring people that there is no shortage of food, the public continues to buy stuff crazily not giving enough time to employees to restock the shelves.
#3 "Don't lose it over a loo roll"
The government is asking for people to be more conscious of others, yet to no avail. “Customers, check yourself before you check out. Don’t lose it over a loo roll,” SDA National Secretary-Treasurer Gerard Dwyer said.
