Okay, so I'm sure everyone and their cousin's cousin knows about the situation with the coronavirus, and how it is spreading.
Well, apparently I had heard on the internet that across all of Australia, people are buying large quantities of food, supplies, and toilet paper from stores and storing them within their houses. I had even heard that somebody in a store got stabbed over toilet paper in the middle of a store.
Well, let me tell you something.
Guys... it's real.
Me and my parents went shopping today, and oh my gosh. Every person in the shop was either carrying toilet paper in their arms, or they had it in their shopping cart. I even saw this little girl cheerfully holding a package of toilet paper in her arms, and heard her telling her dad how she's gonna "sell it on eBay" and make money from it.
Not to mention, the lines to the checkout were really long. Like, seriously long. And while we were in line, the person in front of us literally had nothing but two packages of toilet paper in his cart. Like, this guy seriously came all the way to this store just to buy toilet paper
So yeah, now you guys know. Confirmed by an American expat, this is very much a real thing that is happening.
The toilet paper crisis is real.
Also, my parents, more specifically my dad, have gotten really concerned for me. And both have decided that I should probably stay inside for a little while and not leave the house, that way I don't potentially get infected with the virus. Apparently the risks are getting higher and higher.
I don't think I'm going to get infected, but we don't want to run that risk. If any one of my family members gets infected, that means quarantine for all of us, for at least two weeks. And we can't afford for something like that to happen.
Anyways, I suppose that's it for now. Of course if any thing else happens, I'll update.
(P.s. I hope to heaven above I don't get infected.)
