Pandemic situation causes new challenges that each of us have to face. Preventing physical contact during shopping journeys can help to reduce the risk for virus contamination and ensure higher safety.
- Crowding in shops or pharmacies increase shopper’s risk of catching or spreading the virus.
- Some products in shops may be unavailable due to increased demand, thus one can hardly know whether she/he can find the products that they are looking for.
- One will need to visit multiple shops, thus increasing the risk of getting infected or infecting others.
