The Centre ignored manufacturers’ advice to not remove sanitisers and masks from essential commodities list.
I don’t like replying to the comments. Someone with higher Brain function brought up an issue on my last post “Masks And Sanitizers Are A Myth“, citing that the government did this due to over-production, etc. Someone told me that we have huge stocks of masks and sanitisers piled up.
In a letter written to the Secretary, Department of Consumer Affairs (DoCA), the Association of Indian Medical Devices Industry (AIMeD) had suggested that in view of the rising number of Covid-19 cases in the country, two and three-ply grade face masks should continue to be an essential commodity for at least another six months.
On June 30, AIMeD in its letter written to the government said: “As the unlock process has started in India, masks and sanitizers are more in demand than earlier.”
Now see, I am not saying anything!
It’s just that, the masks aren’t available in my city and the quality of available sanitisers is so pathetic that I am making my own.
Now, either the manufactures are hoarding the masks expecting a pandemic to happen so that they can sell those at higher prices, or maybe, just maybe, the government is stupid.
Whatever the case be, I am still not saying anything.
