Kathmandu, April 7
In view of the shortage of hand sanitiser in the market due to the coronavirus fears, a medicine manufacturer run by the government has begun producing and selling sanitiser.
The Nepal Aushadhi Limited says it has distributed 20,000 bottles of sanitiser produced recently as per the World Health Organisation standards.
The company’s acting general manager Bijaya Shree Bajracharya says, “We have begun marketing high-quality sanitiser to end the current market crisis.” He claims that the company staff worked hard to collect raw materials.
Informing that the company began producing sanitiser after a consultation meeting with the Ministry of Industry and the Department of Drug Administration, Bajracharya said the production would continue even after the crisis.
The sanitiser is also available for sale at its office in Babarmahal of Kathmandu.
