The Vietnam e-Commerce and Digital Economy Agency under the Ministry of Industry and Trade coordinated with e-commerce platforms to close over 30,000 stores for increasing prices of products for the prevention of the Covid-19 outbreak, causing uncertainties in the market.
To cool down the fever of face masks and hand sanitizers, several distribution channels have joined hands with enterprises to increase the supply for the market. It is expected that hundreds of thousands of antimicrobial and medical face masks will be put into the market this weekend.
As the market still faces a shortage of face masks while the source of fabric material has been exhausted, several manufacturers have been rushing to import materials for the production of face masks amid the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.
Authorities have been seeking the source of materials for the production of face masks in South Africa, Egypt, and India to provide for domestic production to serve the fight against the spread of the new coronavirus.
According to the People’s Committee of Lac Duong District, Lam Dong Province, around 10,300 free medical facemasks have been given to minority ethnic people amid human-to-human spread of acute respiratory infection caused by coronavirus.
