The continued spread of coronavirus in several countries across the world has inspired LVMH, owner of renowned fashion luxury brand, Louis Vuittion, to wade into the matter and see what can be done to protect people from getting infected.
According to reports by BBC News, the luxury brand is set to commence the production of hand sanitisers through its perfume production line.
Recall that since the outbreak of the virus, several health experts have come out to advise people to ensure that they keep to a strict hygienic routine, which includes the use of hand sanitisers to keep their hands clean and free of germs.
This had immediately resulted in an increased demand for hand sanitisers, with stores complaining of more demand than supply of the product.
