Apply the fear people had over lockdown and the resulting panic buying,and the memory of that , to Brexit.All it will take is the media to even hint at the chance of shortages,and folks will repeat that again.
Could be an interesting one. Cheques stretching around the car parks with the social distancing , limited home delivery slots and currently on tesco click and collect there's an 80 item limit so i'm not certain how a second wave panic buying scenerio would play out. Would people abandon the social distancing to scrum down in the supermarket aisles or would the fear of the virus prevent them doing that? Would muggings for a trollyload of shopping be seen?
Combo of the 'Rona and a looming no-deal Brexit is not an attractive one. :shock:

Don't forget the looming financial problems, so maybe that should be a triple whammy.

Just make sure there’s food in the pantry, and a bit of everything that was short back in March. Those things you CAN control. Being worried and concerned about the future , whilst understandable, you can’t control.
In three words I can sum up everything I have learned about life: It goes on.

I think it's not just "second wave of Covid-19" but I would imagine that this autumn/winter, if anyone gets any kind of lurgy, then folks are going to be more inclined to take time off work/ be banned from coming into work which in itself could lead to issues. Most winters we all struggle and push ourselves into work when we are unwell as our bosses/family finances won't let us have time off, so end up spreading even minor illness about. It's never been good etiquette to take time off work. I would imagine that this year, that attitude will change. I definitely don't want to be standing outside in all weathers this winter queuing if a resurgence does mean shops limiting shoppers in and out still, so yes I will be maintaining and increasing stocks for that (as per Jansman's comment) and the looming financial issues (as per Arwen's comment.)
