Rationing in the Venezuelan region of Táchira

The government refuses to call it rationing but that is what it is: from now on if you want to buy food or hygiene products and you live in Táchira, in the most densely populated state bordering Colombia, you can only do it two days a week. The days when you can buy those products depend on the last digit of your ID. This is worse than the rationing for specific (admittedly, many) products in place in the rest of Venezuela.

So, now if your ID ends in 1 or 2, you can buy stuff on Mondays and Saturdays.
If your ID ends in 3 or 4, you can buy on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
If your ID ends in 5, you can buy on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
If your ID ends in 6, you can buy on Wednesdays and Sundays.
If your ID ends in 7 or 8, you can buy on Thursdays and Sundays.
If it ends in 9 or 0, you can buy on Thursday and Sundays.
