People have started hoarding and outrageously increasing the price of alcohol-based hand sanitizers due to the sudden outbreak of the deadly coronavirus in Ghana.
Some have even gone ahead to make about a 300% increment on the prices of these sanitizers.
According to check by YEN.com.gh, a bottle of a hand sanitizer which used to be sold for GHS 10.00 is now being sold for GHS 40.
The price surge in these products has forces TV personality Nana Nana Aba Anamoah and rapper Criss Waddle to come out and speak against this cruel attitude.
In an Instagram post sighted by YEN.com.gh, Nana Aba said all pharmacies and shops that have increased the prices of sanitizers astronomically are all hell-bound.
"All pharmacies and shops that have increased the prices of sanitizers astronomically are all hell-bound. You sit in your homes and offices and complain when issues of corruption come up. You’re corrupt. You’re evil. You shameless bunch of insensitive people. If your neighbour can't afford it, your chance of infection is higher
Criss Waddle, on the other hand, was not pleased about what was going on also said it is our own people who will kill us.
These price hikes are as a result of the fact that people have been asked to use the sanitizers frequently to help rid their hands of any virus.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) has currently been declared as a global pandemic that is spreading rapidly around the world.
On March 12, Ghana confirmed two cases of the virus.
But on March 15, four other cases were confirmed to bring the number to a total of six cases recorded in Ghana so far.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Highlife singer Dada Hafco had said that event organizers in Ghana need to put all their entertainment events on hold in order to stop the spread of the deadly coronavirus.
According to him exposing the public to large gathers like the entertainment event can increase the rate at which the virus is spread.
Dada Hafco added that event organizers in ghana should cancel all entertainment events as it has been done in other jurisdictions that are more advanced than Ghana.
