Prices of hand sanitizers in the country have gone up since Ghana recorded its first few cases of the dreaded coronavirus.

Business Insider by Pulse calls the increment in prices astronomical as the margin goes up from a hundred per cent to a thousand per cent (100% – 1000%) and over.

However, this is expected in a normal economic world as demand is greater than the supply of goods.

Formerly, hand sanitizers that were sold between the prices of GHS2.50 and GHS5.00 are now being sold at prices between GHS80.00 and GHS150.00.

The price gouging has attracted massive backlash from Ghanaians. Some influential personalities in the country did not take it lightly and took to social media to lambast the “greedy” individuals behind it.

Here are some comments from Ghanaians
