Is the absurd moronic panic buying/hoarding by cretins beginning to slow down? (perhaps they've run out of space!).

I went to a supermarket today, and whilst it was a bit of a ballache queuing outside for 15 minutes or so with the 1 out 1 in procedure, but once inside it was very pleasant, it not being packed, and the shelves were all fully stocked.

i did this in waitrose, though many of the shelves were empty... no loo paper, hand wash, sanitisers....
My local Co Op had delivery yesterday, so shelves are well stocked, hopefully it will last a while, as the panic buyers should be well stocked up.
Panic buying has slowed, but sales are vastly up on normal times.
Last weeks sales were up to 50% up. This week sales it is probably half that, but still a big increase.

// Panic buying sent sales soaring by more than 50 per cent at supermarkets last week as shoppers spooked by the coronavirus rushed out to stockpile everything from toilet roll to dried pasta.

Senior sources at major chains said spending at individual shops had hit even higher levels as lines that have waned in popularity in recent years – such as tinned meat or vegetables and long-life milk – flew off the shelves.

'Food keeps coming in but the shelves are being picked dry,' said a director at one major grocery chain.

'Normally supermarkets work on the basis that, with a fair wind, we can grow sales marginally by one or two per cent on last year. But sales have gone up 50 per cent, even 70 per cent in some cases.' //
