10 dead after drinking sanitizers.

10 men on Friday were reported dead after drinking alcohol-derived sanitizer.

The incident occurred in India’s town of Kurichedu, in Andhra Pradesh.

The men resorted to drinking hand sanitizers ,claiming that alcohol had become so scarce following closure of bars and liquor shops due to Covid-19.

So far ,India has recorded a total of 1.64 million Covid-19 cases since its outbreak.

“Some people who are heavily addicted to alcohol had been consuming hand sanitizers for the high,” Siddharth Kaushal, the top police official in the district where Kurichedu is located, told Reuters.

“Alcohol is not available because of the lockdown, but hand sanitizers are easily available.”

He said others who had also consumed sanitizers had been discharged from the hospital.

They that passed on had other underlying health conditions,he added.

The federal government has allowed the reopening of most economic activities to try to stave off financial disaster.

Many states including Andhra Pradesh, however, are still isolating certain pockets where the virus infections have jumped ,for example,Kurichedu.
