People in Hong Kong have reportedly started clearing out shelves of food in supermarkets.
And it appears that the same is happening in Singapore.
Photos of people clearing the shelves of food have been circulating online on social media:
It appears that dry foods, such as instant noodles and pasta, are being snapped up.
Other necessities, such as toilet paper, also appear to be cleared out at some places.
When Mothership went to several supermarkets in Singapore during the evening (Feb. 7), large crowds were observed and some shelves appeared to be emptier than usual.
As of 8:20pm, the queue for the cashier stretched all the way to the end of the supermarket, near the frozen section.
