  Hot question and answer

  Question: Is it necessary to grab and stockpile medicines?

Answer: no need! On the one hand, medicines have a shelf life, and there are certain conditions for storage. Improper storage is easy to deteriorate, and too many medicines can easily cause waste if stored for a long time.
