Pharmacist shares when stocks of hand sanitiser are likely to be restocked

As coronavirus continues to spread, hand sanitiser has become one of the most sought-after products in the world.

A total of 35 people in the UK, and more than 6,500 worldwide, have died after contracting Covid-19.

One of the NHS’s main pieces of advice is to wash your hands with soap for at least 20 seconds.

But if soap and water isn’t available, the NHS advises using hand sanitiser.

However, the problem is that there is an international shortage of hand sanitiser.

We have previously explained how you can make your own homemade hand sanitiser.

But if you prefer to wait until hand sanitiser stocks have been replenished, we may have some good news.

Pharmacist Shamir Patel, the founder of online pharmacy Chemist 4 U, has shared some vital information with Daily Star Online.

Speaking of the diminishing hand sanitiser stocks, he explained how they would be replenishing stocks at Chemist 4 U today, on Monday, March 16.

He exclusively told Daily Star Online: “Stocks of antibacterial gel have been diminishing over the past couple of weeks.

“We received unprecedented demand for it, selling 15,000 litres of hand gel within 48 hours."

He continued: “Manufacturers are working hard to replenish stocks, and at Chemist 4 U, we will be receiving 20,000 units per day from Monday 16th March.

“It is a 100ml 60% alcohol hand sanitiser which will be sold at £5.99 in cases of 1, 3, 6 and 12.”

He explained how the “cost of goods has increased dramatically, but we will not be passing this cost implication onto our customers”.
