CBS News reports:
It might be a little harder to find hand sanitizer in stores with the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, but the state has proposed a solution — its own product.
On Monday morning, Gov. Cuomo took time to announce “NYS Clean” hand sanitizer, which he calls a “superior product” to those on the market.
“It’s much cheaper for us to make it ourselves,” Cuomo said. 100,000 gallons of the sanitizer will be produced every week. It will be provided to government agencies, schools, prisons and others.
NEW: Amid coronavirus outbreak, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announces state hand sanitizer—”made, conveniently, by the state of New York”—that will be provided to schools, MTA, prisons and more.
