Hand sanitiser rationed at Telford store

Government advice suggesting extra hygiene measures to combat Coronavirus has led to one store in Telford rationing supplies.

Boots the Chemist at Wrekin Retail Park has limited customers to two each, as stocks run low.

The symptoms of coronavirus are:

a cough
a high temperature
shortness of breath
But these symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness.

The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu.

Because it's a new illness, we do not know exactly how coronavirus spreads from person to person.

Similar viruses are spread in cough droplets.

It's very unlikely it can be spread through things like packages or food. Viruses like coronavirus cannot live outside the body for very long.

Most people can continue to go to work, school and other public places.

You only need to stay away from public places (self-isolate) if advised to by the 111 online coronavirus service or a medical professional.

Do you think we are overreacting in the UK?
