The panic surrounding coronavirus has people stocking up on goods. Not just face masks and hand sanitisers, but tissue rolls, soaps, and other household items are also being picked up in bulk. Stocks are running out in stores quickly, leaving several others agitated.
Speaking of which, a video of an elderly Italian man complaining about pasta running out of stock in a grocery store amidst coronavirus has gone viral on the internet.
“The pasta shelves are empty. What is happening? There wasn’t this much panic when World War II started. Oh my god!”

People on the internet have found the man’s love for pasta extremely relatable! Many are calling the video “the most Italian thing ever”. Have a look:
the fact that this older gentleman was alive during world world II & says people are acting crazier over the coronavirus says something about our society today.😅

My favourite thing in all this is the angry Italian man. Mad because there is no pasta on the shelves.
