LVMH to Make Hand Sanitizer for France
Posted on March 15, 2020
LVMH is pitching in to help France during the Covid-19 coronavirus battle. The luxury company will use its perfume and cosmetics factories to make a hand sanitizer that will be delivered Free to French health authorities.
A CNBC report says LVMH will start making the hydroalcoholic gel on Monday, March 16th. Hand sanitizer has been in short supply in France and many other countries.
LVMH says in a statement, "Through this initiative, LVMH intends to help address the risk of a lack of product in France and enable a greater number of people to continue to take the right action to protect themselves from the spread of the virus. LVMH will continue to honour this commitment for as long as necessary, in connection with the French health authorities."
France is currently on lockdown as it deals with the dangerous virus. Cases are rising in France which has reported 5,423 cases and 127 deaths through yesterday.
