The hashtags #ToiletPaperEmergency or the great #ToiletPaperApocalypse have been trending on Twitter. People fearful of the coronavirus have caused toilet paper sales to skyrocket, resulting in a deficit in supply in Australia. An Australian newspaper has come up with a hilarious solution to the problem.
The newspaper has decided to add eight extra pages to their newspaper so that their readers can use those eight extra pages as a replacement for toilet paper if they are running low.

In the face of the increasing demand, a leading supermarket has decided to implement a 4 packet limit per customer.
We’ve implemented a 4 packet limit on toilet paper to ensure more customers can access stock. The vast majority of products in our range remain available & we're working hard with our suppliers to ramp up production & deliveries to restock shelves ASAP.https://t.co/1TUo2cwc41— Woolworths (@woolworths) March 3, 2020
