Australian newspaper prints extra pages to use as toilet paper during shortage

An Australian newspaper has taken it upon itself to help out citizens amid the country’s toilet paper shortage, as the global outbreak of COVID-19 sends citizens into panic buying.

NT News, a tabloid based in Darwin, Australia, has included in its issue today, March 5, eight extra pages which can be ripped or cut out by readers whenever the need arises.

People are responding with great humour.

There is a darker side to the story, though. Coronavirus fears have triggered runs on several products, including hand sanitisers and face masks, with images of shoppers stacking trolleys with toilet rolls spreading on social media.

Today, a brawl over loo roll broke out at a supermarket in New South Wales which ended in police deploying a taser.
