Shoppers have empties shelves of toilet paper and hand gel in a wave of panic buying, after Public Health England urged members of the public to "plan ahead" if they had to self-isolate for a couple of weeks.
However, the Government’s chief scientific adviser Sir Patrick Vallance said there is “absolutely no reason” for the British public to panic buy.
Tesco has almost entirely sold out of dried pasta online and has now introduced a five limit number on several items, including anti-bacterial wipes, gels, and long-life milk.
No other supermarket has resorted to rationing food, however the majority are now limiting anti-bacterial gels to two per customer — or have sold out entirely.
Coronavirus concerns appear to have created an international rush for toilet paper.
Hand sanitiser products were also found to be selling for more than 5,000% their recommended retail price online, with bottles worth 49p selling for £24.99
One eBay listing has seen a second-hand bottle of liquid soap sell for more than £5 — despite being only three-quarters full.
