Louis Vuitton has announced that it will launch its own hand disinfectant perfume production line, which is part of the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Paris-based luxury brand has made the decision to address the nationwide shortage of disinfectants across France.
“These gels will be delivered to health officials free of charge,” said Louis Vuitton-LVMH’s owner on Sunday.
“LVMH will use the production lines of its perfume and cosmetic brands to produce large quantities of hydroalcoholic gels starting Monday,” added LVMH in a statement.
The latest figures show that 120 deaths have been recorded in France due to the spread of the coronavirus.
As a result of the situation, the country has closed cafes, restaurants and other non-essential stores to prevent the spread of the virus.
The COVID19 virus is said to have infected 162,687 people and killed more than 6,000 people.
