Coronavirus: antibacterial hand gel, soaps and sanitisers sell out in Stamford shops and supermarkets
Concerns about coronavirus have resulted in sanitising hand gel selling out in shops.
Antibacterial soaps, tissues and cold remedies are also being purchased in high quantities. Click here for official advice on coronavirus.
Boots, Superdrug, Savers, Wilkinson, Morrisons, Tesco and Marks and Spencer in Stamford have been out of hand gel this week, with any new stock being snapped up.
The Government advises people to carry tissues and use them to catch a cough or sneeze before binning the tissue and washing hands, or using a sanitiser gel.
It says hands should be washed often with soap and water, or a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available. People should avoid touching their eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
According to UK advice, there’s little evidence of face masks providing benefit outside a clinical setting.
