Due to the coronavirus casuing a global epidemic which has brought extreme difficulties to the majority of the world, the French luxury group LVMH who owns Louis Vuitton has announced that they would be utilizing three of their perfume and cosmetic sites to produce hand sanitiser to then distribute at French hospitals. "These gels will be delivered free of charge to the health authorities," LVMH announced on Sunday.

"LVMH will use the production lines of its perfume and cosmetic brands... to produce large quantities of hydroalcoholic gels from Monday," stated LVMH.

This is in response to the outbreak spreading quickly in France, where they have closed all restaurants, cafes and shops that aren’t classed as essential in order to help tackle and reduce the virus to spread.

The fears of catching the virus has led to many buying in mass, ultimately leading to national shortage in anti-viral products, some pharmacies have had to limit clients to one bottle per person.
