The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has released a list of 327 approved hand sanitizers in the midst of growing concerns about the standard of the products in the market.
Hand sanitizers have become the fastest moving product in the world and for that matter, Ghana today because of its role is preventing the spread of the dreaded Covid-19 virus.
