Singapore: Shoppers clear supermarket shelves amid coronavirus panic-buying
Empty counters. What products are Muscovites buying because of the coronavirus
In recent days, educational institutions in the capital have introduced quarantine, employers recommend that colleagues do business remotely, and all leisure activities in the city are canceled. All this is due to the large-scale spread of coronavirus infection. It seems that the situation scared Moscow residents so much that they began to buy food in supermarkets. We'll tell you what exactly Muscovites are stocking up on and what to do if the product they need is out of stock.
What products are Muscovites buying during quarantine?
Nowadays, large stores are crowded even during the day, during working hours. The increased interest of Muscovites is caused by cheap products, which are enough for a long time. Buyers massively stock up on cereals (buckwheat, oatmeal, rice, etc.), pasta, potatoes, salt, sugar, meat and convenience foods.
Cereals, durum pasta and potatoes during quarantine are good not only for low cost , but also the ability to saturate the body. They contain complex carbohydrates that are absorbed slowly and evenly. Thus, these substances do not cause sharp jumps in blood sugar and relieve hunger for a long time.
Semi-finished products are also notable for their low price. Despite the fact that they contain few useful substances, the preparation of such products takes only a few minutes. Perhaps this is their main advantage.

What to do if the product you need runs out in the supermarket?
Some large stores do not miss the opportunity to benefit from the current situation. For example, in one of the capital's Auchan, whole carts filled with essential goods began to be sold. The price of a quarantine kit is more than 2,500 rubles.

You can also use the services of online stores. Of course, they are currently overflowing with orders, so your purchases may be shipped a little later than usual.
