Firstly, most of us in the West are well aware that toilet roll is not a necessary item to stock up on at this time, however it is a minority few who purchase multiple packs that are causing the shortage.
Secondly, psychology experts stated that in times of general panic, human beings innately become drawn to products that are both long life and large in size as things that are bigger must be more important in times of a crisis. Therefore it is a subconscious urge within people telling them to buy toilet roll even if it is not important at all.
Honestly though it is ridiculous the levels to which people are panic buying nowadays. People need to stop being selfish and think about others. Many people can’t get access to basic necessities due to your greed and you should be ashamed of your self-centred actions
