Waitrose shoppers spotted wearing hazmat suits for lockdown supermarket shop

A couple were spotted dressed in hazmat suits during their lockdown supermarket shopping trip, taking no chances during the pandemic.

The duo, who seemed to be a man and a woman, donned blue coverings from head to toe, with goggles and gloves.

They came to the Waitrose store in Hull on Sunday to do their usual shop, but were extremely cautious.

During their trip they picked up spaghetti hoops while protecting them selves while the UK remains in its third lockdown.

The individual who took a picture of the pair said: "Applause to the two people who visited Waitrose in Willerby in full hazmat suits, gloves, and goggles."

A further 149 people who tested positive for coronavirus have died in hospital in England, bringing the total number of confirmed deaths reported in hospitals to 83,123, NHS England said on Sunday.

Almost two million people in England will receive invites to book a coronavirus jab as part of the mass roll out vaccine programme, reports HullLive.

A total of 17,254,844 Covid-19 vaccinations have now been administered in England between December 8 and February 26, according to NHS England figures.

People aged 60 to 63 are next in line for the jab and will receive letters from NHS England from Monday.

The next batch of invites were sent out after NHS England said more than three in four people aged 65 to 70 took up the offer of the vaccine and booked in to be jabbed.

England is currently still in a national lockdown, meaning people can only leave the house for a select few reasons such as to go shopping for essential groceries, to take exercise and to go to work if they cannot work from home.

Non-essential shops, pubs, restaurants and entertainment venues remain closed with those in the hospitality sector only able to do takeaways.

But from March 8 the Prime Minister's roadmap will begin with step one, where all ages will return to schools across England.

As part of step one, from March 29, outdoor gatherings of either six people or two households will be permitted and the Stay at Home order will end, although many restrictions will remain in place.
