A Tesco superstore in Manchester has been struck by a Covid outbreak which has infected at least 50 staff.
An employee at the Tesco Extra on Chester Road in Stretford has also died, although the supermarket would not confirm whether this was as a result of the outbreak ‘out of respect for the family.’
The store was closed up today after the staff was forced to self-isolate, with sources saying that up to 50 are off work.
Tesco said that ‘extensive measures’ had been taken to limit the spread of the virus at the Manchester shop, including social-distancing signage and limits on the number of shoppers allowed inside at one time.
