(ORDO NEWS) — The third quarantine begins in the UK, which has already led to a shortage of toilet paper and rice. People are massively buying up these and other essential goods.
On January 5, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced strict restrictions. Immediately after his words, crowds of people began to burst into supermarkets, emptying the shelves.
It took an hour for supermarkets in Ilford and East London to declare stock depletion. Mostly they took rice and toilet paper.
This story, it should be noted, is not new. On October 31 last year, people also bought up everything they saw when the prime minister introduced the national quarantine. Every lockdown world watches the British invasion of shops.
Supermarkets were forced to impose limits on the amount of goods sold to one person. This is the first time since World War II. According to statistics, residents of the UK spent 60 million pounds on essential goods, of which 17.6 million were spent on toilet paper.
