Beard sanitiser gel sale went up recently in the UK after NHS encouraged employees to shave that beard off. This was done so that the face masks can properly fit. As a result, the sale of beard sanitiser gel in UK increased by 27 per cent.
The novel coronavirus has hit the entire world. With over 90,000 people infected and over 3,000 dead, the COVID-19 has created a panic-like situation everywhere. People are following extreme hygiene measures to prevent being infected by Covid-19. From washing their hands with soap and water for more than 20 seconds several times a day to using sanitisers, to choosing to say namaste instead of a handshake, people are doing their bit to try and protect themselves from this epidemic
The latest measure taken by NHS (National Health Service) UK is the first of its kind. Southampton University NHS sent out a mass email talking about the ‘ill-fitting’ masks on bearded faces and how the problem can be solved by shaving facial hair.
Since then, a steep rise in the sale of beard sanitiser gel and disposable medical masks has been noticed in the UK.
But this is not happening just in the UK. The panic has spread far and wide. In India, people are stocking up on hand sanitisers and masks; so much so, that there are no sanitisers left in the market.
