Hand sanitizers and masks will be treated as essential commodities till 30 June, according to a government.

The Centre’s move is part of its efforts to contain the spread of the deadly coronavirus that has so far claimed more than 5,000 lives the world over including one in India. More than 80 are affected in the country.
