Quavo Shares Eerie Photo of Empty Supermarket Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

Quavo is feeling the effects of panic buying caused by the coronavirus outbreak.

Wednesday on Instagram, the Migos rapper shared an eerie photo inside of a supermarket, where it appears most of the shelves were wiped clean of food.

While wearing a face mask, Nike slides with socks, and Von Dutch sweatpants, the 28-year-old musician added the caption, “Damn... I’m Late Be Safe Everyone.”

Per CNN on Wednesday, several shops around the world are rationing food and household supplies to prevent shortages.

In the U.K., retailers such as Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Aldi, Waitrose, and Ocado have placed limits on the number of products customers can buy.

In a letter to customers, Sainsbury’s CEO Mike Coupe said items such as toilet paper, soap, and long-life milk will be limited to two per customer.

Numerous markets have even dedicated a time where vulnerable groups, such as the elderly and the disabled, can shop more comfortably.
