Not buying it. Saving for someone who needs it

Also the items are Anti-Microbial not anti- viral

At a time when all hand sanitizers are in short supply, the benzalkonium chloride products are better than nothing, said Emily Landon, an infectious diseases specialist at the University of Chicago Medicine. She said the CDC recommendation for hand sanitizers is based on the fact that 60% alcohol kills "all of the coronaviruses we know about." A sanitizer with benzalkonium chloride as the active ingredient is "not as good," because we don't know as much about it, she said. As a physician, mother and infection-control expert, she called alcohol-based products her "first choice" for hand sanitizers.

The gold standard to remove Coronavirus from your skin is to wash with soap and water for 20 seconds, then dry your hands, not hand sanitizer.

I'm no expert and am in no way saying that this will do anything to help stop any virus. I'm simply saying that its back in stock and better than nothing.

Actually this is worse than nothing - people will use this instead of taking the time to wash their hands, particularly children. The active ingredient is a quartinary ammonium compound that was tested and not significantly effective against Coronavirus. This is why it's not recommended by the CDC. This is the 2020 study outlining all compounds tested:

I bought those before for $10 for 6. Is Amazon policing itself for price gouging??

All these medical experts should be out helping people instead of wasting time on slickdeals

I bought refills of this stuff years ago thinking it might be good in an emergency situation , but never used it once. Expiration date was a few years ago, does anyone know if it's useless now?
Heard someone on the News say that there was no problem in the supply chain for hand sanitizers. I guess it's just a problem with panicking hoarders. And this does look like an inflated price, who is doing the gouging? Or is the price being justified as reflecting the demand?
Anyways handwashing is preferable when possible: https://www.vox.com/2020/3/18/211...oronavirus

There isn't a problem in manufacturing, but demand. Inventory is JIT (just in time) meaning no one likes to keep a ton of product in the shelf/in storage as it soaks up $$ that they could otherwise be using. So when demand skyrockets, it takes time for the system to adjust to that demand. I don't know that any of them are forward-thinking either. Most stores inventory is refreshed automatically, IOW current inventory is reconciled every so often and a truck automatically packed with what the system anticipates they will need inventory-wise, I've spoken with store managers that don't even know what they will be getting, but most will have some sort of list, usually very close to when their deliveries happen (e.g. the night before). So, while there are seasonal adjustments to demand, I don't know that store managers can proactively change what the system is requesting..... hey I anticipate the need for more sanitizer, but can that be fed into the system? My guess is likely so but not directly; inventory systems are finely tuned, you don't want people randomly going in and adding or deleting shit.
