Opinion on impact of COVID-19 lockdown on purchasing grocery India 2020 by channel

According to a survey about the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on Indians in May 2020, retail stores seemed more reliable in terms of sourcing essential grocery. For those ordering online, only ten percent got everything they needed easily, compared to 40 percent among retail store shoppers.
India implemented a lockdown for 21 days, announced on March 24, 2020. This was after the "Janata Curfew" on March 22, 2020 - a so-called practice lockdown. Panic-buying commenced among consumers days before the lockdown was announced, much like in other countries. This lockdown was the largest in the world, restricting 1.3 billion people, extended until May 3, 2020.
