She said some might be stocking up as Covid cases are on the rise again.

“The demand has been extremely high, and the current supply is not enough to meet the public demand,” she told Sinar Ahad.

Meanwhile, another pharmacist Haleeza said, other than paracetamol, there was a shortage of medicines for sore throat and cough due to lack of supply.
