Coronavirus got everybody running around scared. People are rushing on the market buying everything they can. Most of the countries have declared the emergency state. As the number of people infected has surpassed half of 1 million and with the death toll rising, people are taking rushed decisions. A similar thing is happening in the UK where people have bought food and now they are throwing it away. A few photos are circulating on Twitter of trash cans full of fresh packaged food. People need to understand that they are wasting food that others can eat. Even though the public is living the quarantine life, that is not an excuse to rush in the market and empty the shelves.
There will always be enough supplies for everybody because the food companies and distribution companies have not stopped working. Markets are getting filled every day and there is no reason for the public to panic over lack of food. Because this is what happens when people take panic decisions. They fill up their house with packaged food that they cannot consume and then they end up throwing it in the trash without even using it. That's creating more waste and leaving other people with no food to eat. Now the government has to come up with a plan to at least take the food to homeless shelters.
