Oregonians reported in 911 about a total shortage of toilet paper The police asks to stop calling and offers alternatives
After essential products, such as hand sanitizer, napkins and others, disappeared from all store shelves, the turn of the most important thing was toilet paper. Amid a shortage, Newport residents have come up with nothing better than reporting their problem to the police.
“It’s hard to believe that we even have to post this. Do not call 9-1-1 just because you ran out of toilet paper. You will survive without our assistance.”
This is a problem, but, according to the Police Department, this is not a threat to life, so a Facebook post was published with a list of alternatives to toilet paper to lower the degree of tension.
“There are always alternatives to toilet paper. Grocery receipts, newspaper, cloth rags, lace, cotton balls, and that empty toilet paper roll sitting on the holder right now. Plus, there are a variety of leaves you can safely use,” Facebook post says.
Amid growing concern over the proliferation of COVID-19, the American nation continues to buy in large quantities everything that can come in handy for an indefinite quarantine and state of emergency throughout the country.
"Be resourceful. Be patient. There is a TP shortage. This too shall pass. Just don’t call 9-1-1. We cannot bring you toilet paper," said in a statement.
Today it is not known how long this condition will last due to coronavirus, but many foods and personal hygiene products have disappeared from stores, and manufacturers and suppliers are not keeping pace with such a rapid demand.
