CORONAVIRUS: Disinfectant Sales Surge As Markets Fall Again

The outbreak of the new coronavirus is boosting sales of disinfectant products, a leading manufacturer has said.

Sales of Dettol and Lysol products have surged as the virus continues to spread across the world, consumer goods giant Reckitt Benckiser said.

The disinfectant is seen as providing protection against the spread of the disease, although its effectiveness has not yet been scientifically proven.

In China, demand for Dettol-branded hand gels is outstripping supply, Reckitt Benckiser said.

The shortages come as global markets slump for a sixth day, with the FTSE 100 trading almost 2% down.
