Mumbai. Panic buying over the coronavirus pandemic has led to a variety of household products flying off the shelves at your local grocery store.
Purchases of the disinfecting gel have skyrocketed in the U.S. ever since the first case of COVID-19 hit the country. Mumbai was recently facing a shortage of sanitizers in hospitals as well as the medical stores. Ravi Shastri stepped up to help in this difficult situation. Ravi told the BMC to take his breath sample and make sanitizers from the alcohol found in his breath.
Even the BMC was shocked at the number of bottles made from Ravi Shastri’s single breath. Ravi has not been drinking off late as his stock was over a few days back. But the alcohol stored in his body over all these years is enough to produce more and more sanitizer bottles for the nation. Ravi’s contribution has been acknowledged by the health ministry and he will soon be presented with an honor.
With some consumers even hoarding hand sanitizer amid the shortage, online prices for the products soared, leading law enforcement officials in many states to enforce strict laws.
