The latest developments including the daily Downing Street news conference on the coronavirus epidemic.

It’s times like this you really see the selfishness of some people. It’s embarrassing and people who are loading up your Trollies with things that you don’t really need should be ashamed of yourselves. Most of that food you will end up throwing away because it will go out of date because you’ve bought too much. Shame on you

I work in a food store. People are really nasty and there are too many people in our stores. If you want us to keep going. Please Stop Panic Buying. Stop coming in with your families. Why are you coming in numbers spreading a virus you may or may not have. Please respect everyone. Stand a metre apart. Be kind to others especially people that have to work on the front line. Leave enough food for everyone.

It is sad that the same narrative did not hold when bankers paid themselves multi million bonuses, when company bosses raided pension funds of workers to add to their already plentiful lifestyle. Government is now shaming people who want to have more than others.

If you going to shame people from your moral high ground, lead by example, change the system and legislation to prevent such unfairness.

The things is no one knows how long this virus is going to go on or what damage it will do plus even if there was a shortage of food the government Wouldn't tell us because there will be total anarchy so i dont know what to think but i belive every 1 should have enough food case they have to self isolate

As a carer for the elderly and disabled I urge people to stop bulk buying. We're under immense pressure already from staff shortages we could do without struggling to buy necessities for the vulnerable we support. Think of yourself AND others especially key workers still on the frontline and who they are helping.

Unfortunately we see the worst of society in times like this but kindness is the backbone of any community. Let's work with each other not against each other.

Why not introduce limits? Or charge normal price for the first pack of loo roll and triple the price for additional ones. Buy two pay four or something....

The negative side effects of the way society coaches us all into wanting more stuff, buy more, consume more, borrow more, buy a better car, buy a bigger house, they push is into wanting more and better than others, they make us aspire to have better than our And now after brainwashing society to be selfishly greedy and commercialised and now they expect people to turn off their programming. I never bought into it and people thought I was odd, now a total turnaround and they want them all to be more considerate...🤔

Panic buying fault lies at the Daily Mail's door.
