The authorities have already announced—there’s no shortage of food. Yet the panic buyers can’t keep themselves from stripping the shelves of grocery stores and hoarding obscene amounts of toilet paper and canned goods in their homes. This unprecedented buying has left many vulnerable people, such as the elderly, disabled, and healthcare workers without much-needed items. While many of those who understand the problem have already started to give snarky looks to the seemingly insensitive people at the stores, there’s also another side to the story.
