ON Monday (March 24) reported the miraculous sight of replenished shelves of Woolworths at Woden, resplendently loaded with rolls and rolls of toilet paper. By this afternoon it was the all-too-familiar sight of an empty aisle.

Is this toilet paper hoarding still going on? Ironically, even in the event of catching COVID:19, research shows that only 4 per cent of suffers are affected by diarrhoea.

Now, off to the meat cabinet…

  1. It is lose/lose. If you don’t hoard and wait till you are down to a couple of rolls, chances are you won’t be able to get any.
