"Yes, I have enough," Mark Rutte said while chatting with a shopper while visiting a supermarket in a demonstration of support for workers.
"They have it (on shelves) again", he added.
"But there’s enough in the whole country for the coming 10 years," he explained. "We can all poop for 10 years."
Dutch supermarkets shelves have largely been restocked after frantic stockpiling last week.
With the coronavirus outbreak leading to disaster panic shopping all over the world, toilet paper has become a much sought after commodity as customers worry about economic uncertainty.
The Netherlands famed Red Light district also saw the cessation of business as panic buyers lined up outside of marijuana cafe's before the lockdown deadline.
Covid-19 has claimed 58 victims in the Netherlands as of Wednesday and 2051 confirmed positive for the virus across the country, according to public health institute RIVM.
