A neighborhood community has come together to organise their shopping during confinement.

The residents of one building in Sabadell, north of Barcelona, place joint orders with the butcher, fishmonger and greengrocers. 

They then take turns going to pick up the goods, thereby reducing the amount of journeys outside, and minimizing the risk of infection. 

"We avoid having to go out several times every week," explained Eva Garví, one of the residents.

They also let each other know when someone is going to the supermarket, to buy bread or to the pharmacy.

"We chat through WhatsApp and if anyone needs something we buy it," said Garví.
