Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton claims that some members of the community are profiteering from coronavirus-inspired demand for groceries. Dutton has warned that people who are found to be buying groceries in bulk in order to send them overseas or to sell them on the black market could face criminal prosecution. Agriculture Minister David Littleproud notes that Australia produces three times the amount of food that is consumed domestically, so there is no need for panic buying.
