IMPHAL | March 16, 2020:
In view of the global coronavirus outbreak, the Manipur government has warned stringent action against all licensed pharmacies and drug stores for hiking up prices of masks and hand sanitisers, amid growing demand for the items.
A notification issued by the Directorate of Health Services has also asked the medical shops to ensure steady supply of essential items to people.
Prices of masks and hand sanitisers have shot up over the past one month, with several stores charging more than double the price for the two items, according to locals.
