China urges families to store basic supplies in case of emergency

0 8
China’s government has urged families to stock up on essential supplies in case of emergencies.
 
No reason was given for the notice from the Ministry of Commerce, but it came amid ongoing coronavirus lockdowns and concerns over vegetable supplies after unusually heavy rain damaged crops.
 
The ministry also asked local authorities to keep supply chains running smoothly and prices stable.
 
State media later sought to quell concerns amid reports of panic buying.
 
“As soon as this news came out, all the old people near me went crazy, panic buying in the supermarket,” one user wrote on the Chinese social media site Weibo.
 
The Economic Daily, a Chinese Communist Party-backed newspaper, urged its readers not to be alarmed, saying the government’s advice was aimed at making sure that households were prepared if a lockdown was announced in their area. (BBC News)
