The Welsh health minister, Vaughan Gething, defended the rule banning the sale of a list of not-essential items during a two-week ‘firebreak’ lockdown which started on Friday. Gething’s comments at a press briefing on Monday come after an incident where there seemed to be confusion in one store over the status of period products. In a later-deleted tweet, a response from the Tesco Twitter account suggested to a customer – who claimed they were told they couldn’t buy the items at a store – that this was in line with the guidelines.
