Australia’s major grocers put strict limits on purchases of toilet paper on Wednesday, after shoppers stripped shelves in a rush of panic buying spurred by fears over a coronavirus.

在購物者因冠狀病毒掀起的恐慌而倉皇大肆搶購,將貨架上商品一掃而空後,澳洲大型零售商店週三對購買衛生紙祭出嚴格限制。

 

The demand for toilet paper, in particular, has sparked the trending hashtags #toiletpapergate and #toiletpapercrisis on Twitter, along with photographs of overloaded shopping trolleys, and calls for calm from baffled officials.

尤其,對衛生紙的需求已經在「推特」掀起「衛生紙門」和「衛生紙危機」熱門話題標籤,以及一張張堆到爆滿的購物車照片,和對此難以理解的官員喊話呼籲冷靜。

 

The biggest grocery chain, Woolworths Group Ltd, limited sales to four packs a shopper, to keep up stock levels while suppliers ramp up production.

在供應商加速生產的同時,最大連鎖零售商Woolworths集團為了維持存貨量,限制每人最多購買4袋。

購物者也搶購其他商品。好市多限制牛奶、雞蛋、米、消毒殺菌品和肥皂的購買量。(路透)
