People in Hong Kong have reportedly started clearing out shelves of food in supermarkets.

And it appears that the same is happening in Singapore.

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.
