Hopping Around With Hopibi: Avoid COVID’s clutches

A few days ago, I was at the supermarket to stock up a few provisions, in case of a possible lockdown. I wanted to make sure that I have enough of essentials, though I totally am against hoarding.

This COVID-19 pandemic is now getting menacing for all of us but there is little we can do but cooperate with the rules and regulations laid out for everyone in everyone’s interest. And there are two main directives that I think  everyone needs to follow to go through these tough times smoothly – social distancing and no hoarding.

Guys, there’s enough for everyone out there, if we only avoid stocking up more than we need. As long as access to supermarkets and foodstuff stores is allowed, you don’t have to worry about running out of food. Each family needs to pick up only what they need, so that stocks can last for as long as we want them to.

Secondly, I noticed, despite the fact that stores have marked specific spots near billing counters and goods counters for people to stand, those queuing up with trolleys have been standing too close to each other. By keeping a safe distance between individuals, one can protect oneself as well as those around from getting into the clutches of COVID-19.
