Australians are panic-buying toilet paper. Again
"Stop it! it's ridiculous," Prime Minister Scott Morrison told fellow Aussies (who are, yet again, panic buying toilet paper) on Friday.

The country’s largest chains – Woolworths and Coles – are reporting a surge in demand for toilet paper rivalling the first days of the pandemic's arrival in Australia.
The return of toilet paper panic buying comes in the wake of a surge in infections in Melbourne, with most other regions having no, or a very low number of new infections.
