During the Corona pandemic, one issue that is adding to the fear is panic buying. To stop sanitizer hoarding, a supermarket in Denmark has come up with a unique strategy. The Hellerup Foodmarket has decided to make a significant rise in the price of sanitizers for people who buy more than one.
The Coronavirus pandemic has given rise to fear among the public everywhere. From Amazon's rapidly increased sales to local shops getting empty within hours, the fear of having to stay within homes has caused many to act in a panicked state.

Magnificent idea! We should do this in UK (although the shelves are bare anyway 🤪) but we could apply it for toilet roll, cans of soup, pasta...the essentials lol 🧻💷🧻🧻💎#panicbuyuk— kathryn f (@verdiKat) March 16, 2020
Just go to the shop twice or three times. Is this really stopping hoarding?— The Flying Elefunt (@FlyingElefunt) March 17, 2020
What do you think of this action taken by the market?
