Type your posts....Less than 24 hours after the news of Nigeria’s first Coronavirus case made the global headlines, owners of supermarkets and pharmacies are beginning to run out of stock following an unprecedented demand for personal protective equipment such as face masks, infrared thermometer and hand sanitisers. According to the coordinator of Pharmalliance Network Nigeria, Mr. Adeshina Opanubi, the present cost of face masks in the open market has skyrocketed to N200,000 in the last 24 hours. A pharmacist who declined to be named said it used to cost between N30,000 and N60,000 before the coronavirus incident in the country. “In fact, there is no stock anywhere as we speak — no mask, no thermometer. “We have even had report that some of the hand sanitisers being hawked around are fake,” Opanubi said. Also, the New Heights Pharmaceuticals, Maryland, Lagos; HealthPlus Pharmacy, Ilupeju, Lagos; Vanguard Pharmacy, Ibadan, Oyo State; Lifestore Pharmacy, Festac, Lagos; and Olive Pharmacy, Ebute-Metta, Lagos, all confirmed the story of the commodities’ scarcity. “They are out of stock,” the outlets told one of our correspondents on Friday. The pharmacist in charge of Lifestore Pharmacy in Festac, Mr. Andrew Garza, explained that although several pharmacies had run out of stock for wholesale, his pharmacy was still retailing the ones he had in stock. “I have also observed that in many stores, the prices are shooting way up because of increasing scarcity; however, we’re trying to keep our prices stable,” Garza said. A community pharmacist at Vanguard Pharmacy in Ibadan, Mr. Taofeek Odukoya, told PUNCH HealthWise that, except for black market, both N-95 brand of face masks and infrared thermometers are currently not available in Nigeria. “What we have in the country at the moment are the regular face masks and contact thermometers, which are still way out of reach anyway.
