An Auckland supermarket says people have started to buy antiseptic sprays and liquids by the box as the world continues to grapple with the coronavirus outbreak.
Countdown Meadowlands, in the suburb of Howick, is having to bring in extra stock for hand sanitisers, antiseptic liquids and antibacterial sprays – particularly Dettol – as people are now buying them in bulk on a daily basis.
Duty manager Kumar Than told the Weekend Herald its warehouse was sending extra stock for those items regularly now – something they had not seen before.
“All the shelves are getting empty very quickly.
“Those items like the hand sanitisers, Dettol, are selling very good certainly after the coronavirus warning.
“We have online orders. Our staff doing online shopping, they’re also seeing so many orders – especially sanitary items [like] Dettol and that kind of thing.”
