Fake Coronavirus Panic at Costco

The above photo has gone viral on social media.

At various posts, the picture was claimed to have been taken at a Costco in New York, San Francisco,
Ontario, and Seattle, amongst other places.

It is not clear where the photo was taken but apparently, the social media postings are causing real panic as people see the photo and go out to by food and other supplies before they believe they will all be gone.

  1. As I said before, I am no more afraid of Corona Virus tjan I am of the seasonal flu. But I am afraid of the panic around it promoted by the Media for political purposes.
