Opinion on impact of COVID-19 lockdown on hand sanitizer prices India 2020

According to a survey about the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on Indians in March 2020, a majority of respondents bought hand sanitizers higher than the government mandated price of 100 Indian rupees for 200 milliliters. However, about 26 percent managed to buy them online at the mandated price in the week preceding the survey.
India implemented a lockdown for 21 days, announced on March 24, 2020. This was after the "Janata Curfew" on March 22, 2020 - a so-called practice lockdown. Panic-buying commenced among consumers days before the lockdown was announced, much like in other countries. This lockdown was the largest in the world, restricting 1.3 billion people.
