The UK government has recommended shops to stock up on food in case the country has to leave the European Union without an agreement.
It was reported by The Sunday Times.
“Supermarkets and ministers are very concerned about panic buying. They saw what happened during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic when people started buying up rolls of toilet paper and now they know how quickly things can go wrong,” warned one supermarket representative.
It is clarified that the authorities have already warned of a possible shortage of vegetables in the next three months. Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health has instructed drug suppliers to stockpile drugs for the next six weeks.
