The UK’s biggest supermarket chains have assured customers they have enough stock to go around.
Supermarkets Asda, Waitrose, Aldi, Tesco and more have assured customers that they have enough food to go around, as well as all of the essentials so we must work together and stop panic buying.
The statement was released because as soon as the stores re-stock the shelfs with pasta, tinned food and toiletries customers quickly strip them.

In a statement which is aimed to re-assure customers “We know that many of you are worried about the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19).
“We want to let you know that we are doing everything we can so that you and your families have the food and essentials you need.
“But we need your help too. We would ask everyone to be considerate in the way they shop.
“We understand your concerns, but buying more than is needed can sometimes mean that others will be left without.
“There is enough for everyone if we all work together.
“Together we can make sure we are looking out for family, friends, neighbours.
“Together we will care for those around us and those who are elderly, vulnerable or choosing to remain at home.”
