Shoppers queue with trolleys full of supplies during a panic coronavirus buying surge in Bangkok, Thailand, on Sunday (March 15).
The country has seen a surge in Covid-19 case in recent days raising fears of a lock down and food shortages.
There have been 114 cases and one death since the outbreak began.
Foods such as instant noodles, sauces and canned food have disappeared from the shelves in many supermarkets as many shoppers seek to plan for shortages.
Thai leader General Prayut Chan-o-cha responded to the panic buying by appealing for calm
"We are not at a stage where we need to stockpile food," he said.
