Coronavirus, the latest updates in the world are very serious. In the UK, the most recent news is that Boris Johnson has decided to accept the greater transparency on coronavirus. It is because Britain itself has 1,372 infected and 35 people died. Nickie Aiken, Conservative MP, said he is “appalled” that shops are putting up the price of high-demand goods.
He has re-tweeted a photo of small bottles of antibacterial gel going for £10: “I urge them not to hike up prices on much-needed items. They may profit in the short term but long term shoppers will not forget and act accordingly.” To fight that, we have decided to write a guide on how to make surgical masks and antibacterial gel at home.
