Luxury Company LVMH Halts Perfume Production To Produce Free Hand Sanitizers In France
Hand sanitizer is the new coveted piece this season
LVMH takes a conscious stand against the coronavirus pandemic. The luxury conglomerate that houses Louis Vuitton, Dior, Givenchy, and Guerlain decides to put a temporary halt to their perfume and cosmetics production to give way to a massive production of hand sanitizers.
With over 5,420 coronavirus cases and a total of 127 deaths in France, hospitals and medical units are in great need of help.
Over the past few days, there has been a global shortage of alcohol-based cleansers, sanitizers, and even disinfectants. In order to protect ourselves from a first-base contact with the virus, these alcohol-based remedies are vital. With this, LVMH announces that their factories and production houses will start to produce hand sanitizers come Monday, 16 March 2020 (GMT+1) and shall proceed with free of charge deliveries to the respective hospitals in need.
In line with this, Paris is currently on stage 3 of contagion. Schools, universities, theatres, bars, and restaurants are ordered for lockdown including all non-essential stores such as public gyms, swimming pools, and the like.
