Will the Purell Hand Sanitizer Market Ever Be the Same After the Coronavirus Disease of 2019-2020?

Coronavirus Disease 2019-2020 Purell Hand Sanitizer

By now you know that Purell hand sanitizer has become as good as gold.  Liquid Gold, that is... but no longer Texas Tea.  This time it's of the 70% ethyl variety and an insane "black" market has sprung up to capitalize on the opportunity to make some money.  What has now become so prolific that online retailers such as Amazon and eBay have prohibited KN-95 masks, hand sanitizer, and hand sanitizing wipes listings, here we examine how this market formed.

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The disease has spread globally since 2019, resulting in the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic. Common symptoms include fever, cough and shortness of breath. Muscle pain, sputum production and sore throat are some of the less common symptoms. While the majority of cases result in mild symptoms, some progress to pneumonia and multi-organ failure. The case fatality rate is estimated at between 1% and 5% but varies by age and other health conditions.
