People started to freak out and rushed into supermarkets to hoard essential goods like toilet papers after the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 as pandemic.
Apart from alcohol and face masks, tissues were easily sold out in a matter of hours. In Australia, there was even a report of having a shortage of toilet paper.
The online calculator now solves the problem on how many toilet papers a household actually needs. This can be very helpful if you are the type of person who likes monitoring your supplies.
London-based web developer David Steward addressed the recent problem with his Got Paper? site,
In the website, the user can calculate how many toilet papers a household needs during the quarantine period.
The site includes categories identifying the user’s defecation and urination habits. It can also assess how much a person needs to use to accomplish his other chores, such as wiping the hand or a surface.
Meanwhile, the developer said the online calculator aims to reduce panic buying and make consumers realize how much actually they need.
In his Daily Mail interview, he also said the site aims to ease fear and anxiety in his community.
