Amid all the (rather ridiculous) coronavirus panic shopping, it seems that the shelves are bare.
The aisles are mostly empty, even the alcohol aisle.
Although there is one kind of beer people simply will not buy. Keep scrolling for the shocking pictures...
Alcohol may be the only thing getting us through this global pandemic.COVID-19 has turned the world as we know it upside down.
What exactly is COVID-19, and just how dangerous is it?According to the World Health Organization, COVID-19 is a new strain of coronaviruses that had not been previously been identified in humans.
The virus primarily affects the respiratory system.And common symptoms include fever, coughing, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties.
But, in more severe cases...And in patients who are elderly and have existing health issues, the virus can lead to pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and even death.
At the time of writing 550, 536 people all over the world have now been infected with the virus...And, devastatingly, a staggering 24, 903 more have been reported to have died from the illness.
And, despite infected people being quarantined...The virus has been alarmingly quick to spread, with cases now being reported all over the globe.
It only took a month for the World Health Organization to declare a global emergency...Which was done in an attempt to combat the virus and enable countries to put in strict measures to prevent any further spread.
But these attempts were to little avail.Because, fast forward 3 months, and nearly every major country in the world has been infected by the virus, with some of the worst affected being Japan, South Korea, Russia, Italy, Iran, and Spain.
World leaders have been left with little choice but to bring their countries to a total stand-still...And many have banned large and crowded events, and any travel to and from infected countries.
Italy has even gone into total lockdown...Leaving their streets completely deserted.
And it didn't take long for the virus to reach us here in the States.Our first case of COVID-19 was confirmed in Washington in late January after a citizen returned from a trip to China.
And, since then, the numbers have been rising at a frightening pace.And the virus is not showing any signs of slowing down.
Yep, things are getting pretty serious.Many people have been descending into mass hysteria over the risks the virus brings with it.
And, in their panic, many have been taking to supermarkets to stockpile on supplies.In apocalyptic scenes all over the world, supermarkets have been overcrowded with people frantically stocking up on soaps, sanitizers, toilet rolls, canned goods, and other non-perishable foods.
People seem to think that buying 3 years' worth of toilet paper will protect them from the virus...Oh, alongside thirty cans of tomatoes. Because that makes total sense...
It's getting completely out of hand.People have been literally emptying supermarkets' shelves of their products, forcing large companies to put regulations in place to prevent people from buying too many things. Yeah, this is the world we're currently living in.
Some shoppers seem to forget that other people also need to buy these items...
This is an old man at the grocery store, looking at his grocery list and realizing nothing is left. To all those wh… https://t.co/sttrWQXDB4— nfmk (@nfmk)1584361838.0
But, despite the frantic panic buying...There is evidently one thing that shoppers are reluctant to buy.
And its Corona...Yeah, the alcohol shelves are pretty much empty aside from that one beer.
People are avoiding the beer, Corona, because of the coronavirus.In some shops, the shelves are still piled full of Corona .
No, we can't believe it either.
Is it stranger that people (in a land far away) are panic buying alcohol, or that they are panic buying all alcohol… https://t.co/pX8nR002Q8— Sandra N (@Sandra N)1585252896.0
The only beer left in Sainsbury's. Lets hope they make Corona pasta, rice and toilet rolls soon. https://t.co/dHtotX3qgI— Chris Carubia 🔶 (@Chris Carubia 🔶)1584704582.0
It's still the same beer as before...
@jane1061 Strange how the only beers left in Asda today were Corona 🙄 https://t.co/hvbFnXLCvB— Mick Powell (@Mick Powell)1584737901.0
Looks like it might take a while before people start buying Corona again.
Panic buying cleared out all the safe beer. Only Corona left #COVID19 https://t.co/RbKBcmfkag— Steve Slatcher (@Steve Slatcher)1584702533.0
