Russians in November began to stock up less on "symbols" of the pandemic

Russians in November began to stock up less on "symbols" of the pandemic

Sales of goods and products popular during the coronavirus pandemic fell in November in Russia. Since the beginning of October, the coronavirus index has dropped 1,6 points. Until November, the index rose for five consecutive weeks.

As the RIA News", the index was developed on the basis of information from the operator of the fiscal data "Platform OFD". The "symbols" of the pandemic include masks, antiseptics, disposable gloves, solid soap, toilet paper, as well as lemons and buckwheat.

Last week, the average check fell the most for medical masks, and it also decreased for antiseptics and lemons. Only soap purchases have grown, but not significantly. Sales of the rest of the "coronavirus" goods remained at the same level.

Sales of masks and antiseptics, according to analysts, is associated with the transition of more office workers to remote work. Also, the Russians have not yet spent their old reserves. Experts say that sales will rise in the beginning and middle of next month - during the period of receiving salaries.

At the end of September, with the beginning of an increase in the incidence of influenza and SARS, Russians began to massively buy protective equipment, lemons, ginger and other foods to strengthen the immune system. There was no great demand for long-term storage products.
