In a world dealing with coronavirus, and shortages of everything from toilet paper to food, one business is stepping up and offering a much-needed hand.
In what can only be considered as a move that is just in the knick of time, Anheuser-Busch is putting their “money where their mouth is.”
The company recently announced that they would be switching gears and would go into hand sanitizer producing mode.
On Monday, the alcohol producer told Fox News that it would be producing hand sanitizer that they intend to distribute to those areas that have been hardest hit by the coronavirus.
In a statement emailed by a company spokesperson, the company plans to use its network of supplies and logistics to both manufacture and distribute the bottles of hand sanitizer. They will then rely on the help and direction of the American Red Cross to see that the product gets to those who need it most.
“we are in this together, and there is more to come.”
Everyone is ramping up their personal hygiene routines to not only keep themselves healthy but those around them.
The CDC has emphasized that the most effective method of stemming and preventing the spread of the virus is through the thorough washing of our hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm water.
Anheuser-Busch isn’t the only company switching gears in these trying and stressful times. On Monday, President Trump tweeted that top automakers Ford, General Motors, and Tesla have retooled their assembly lines and are now producing ventilators.
With the number of confirmed cases as well as reported deaths beginning to rise exponentially in the US, the fact that these companies have stepped up to answer the call is not lost on many Americans.
It does just go to show that we are all in this together, and we need to just take it one day at a time.
