Drugstores call NL residents to not hoard medicines

Drugstores in the Netherlands are calling on people to stop buying large quantities of medicines. There is enough for everyone, so only buy what you need, Kruidvat, Etos, DA, DIO, Trekpleister and independent drugstores said in a full-page advertisement published in the national newspapers on Friday.

"In recent days, we have noticed that many consumers are buying more over-the-counter medicines than usual," the drugstores said. "Then it may happen that we have to tell the next customer 'no'."

There is enough for everyone, according to the drugstores. "So buy quantities that you normally buy, then we can continue to supply our stores normally. Because there are always others who also need paracetamol."
