Olivia Attwood begs people not to steal her hand sanitisier as she’s got one in every room amid coronavirus isolation – The Sun

OLIVIA Attwood has begged people not to steal her hand sanitisier as she reveals she's got one in every room amid coronavirus isolation.

The reality star, 28, took to her Instagram account to plead with people around her to not burgle her supplies after the demand for the product has exploded since the spread of the deadly bug.

Cosied up in her bed away from the panic outside, she explained that although she is worried about the virus, she's fully stocked with everything that she needs.

She said: "Yeah I'm f***ing hypo about this stuff and I'm fine to admit it.

"I've been like this for years. Plus side I didn't have to go buy hand sanitiser or hand wash when it started because I had them in every bathroom, every car, thought that was normal apparently not.

"I was stocked, still got stock. Don't burgle us because we've got less stock than we did."

The Towie star then explained to her 1.8m followers that she's been staying in doors to make sure she's doing her bit to stop the contamination because she had a slight cough.

She said: "I've literally been self isolating for four days but yesterday I had a tickle in my throat and I looked at Brad and he just goes just 'shut the f**k up and I was like 'I didn't even say anything', he's like 'I know what you're going to say' and I was like 'I wasn't even going to say that'… I was."

With a widespread shortage of the products and with prices of some bottles surging to up to £40 – many are turning to making their own homemade solutions.

Other celebs including Stacey Solomon, 30, have taken matters into their own hands after supermarkets have been stripped bare of their stock.

The Loose Woman star shared on her Instagram how she was making her own hand gel keyrings in her kitchen to help protect her family from the coronavirus outbreak.

In particular, they are putting together hand gels to beat Covid-19 – usually made from aloe vera gel and alcohol.

Despite this, Public Health England are now warning people against doing this, saying these homemade hand sanitisers won’t actually protect you from the virus.

Dr Nick Phin, deputy director at the National Infection Service, PHE, has instead urged people to stick to soap and water, and wash your hands for the time it takes to sing Happy Birthday twice.

He told HuffPost: “The best way to protect yourself from infections like coronavirus is to regularly wash your hands with soap and water.”

It comes as the global death toll from coronavirus is now more than 10,000, while in the UK 144 people have died.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said the NHS is set to receive 2.6 million masks and 10,000 bottles of hand sanitiser.
