Supermarket rationing begins as Tesco limits items to 5 per person

Tesco has begun rationing products as they try to control panic buying.

Some shoppers have been stripping shelves of hand sanitiser, toilet roll and baked beans due to the spread of Coronavirus.

So Tesco have decided to limit customers to five items each of UHT milk, pasta, baked beans and toilet roll, online and in store.

Shoppers will be told they have reached a five-item limit when trying to order the products.

The move comes as the number of cases in the UK soared to 209, rising by 45 on Saturday, after a second death was recorded in the UK.

It comes as videos were posted on social media showing queues of shoppers pushing trolleys piled high with toilet roll and other goods.
