While US and Australia hoard toilet paper, the French are hoarding something a little more edible. They are stockpiling bread. Apparently access to fresh baguettes is so important to the French people, bakeries have been deemed an essential-service business and are allowed to remain open despite strict social distancing regulations.
"We've seen people come in who want to buy 50 baguettes at a time. There's something like a psychosis in some people."
Mr Labbe said there need be no concern over supply, even as some bakers have taken to placing a limit on sales per client.
"We have flour, yeast and salt. There is no problem to produce bread."
Let's all pray for the health of everyone, especially those who provide essential services. Long live the baguette!
