The toilet paper hoarding was the strangest thing, I would've expected hand sanitiser and soap to run off the shelves first but toilet paper seemed so random, I remember hearing that the majority of toilet paper in Australia is produced locally, so it made it even more random cause there wouldn't have been shortages if there wasn't any panic about it.
