New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced today that the state will attempt to combat "price gouging" and a shortage of hand sanitizer by making its own.
Cuomo said at a press conference that the hand sanitizer will be made by Corcraft, a company that operates in the state's prison. The company employs inmates to produce products like household cleaners and tables and chairs.
He said they are aiming to make "100,000 gallons" a week.
Cuomo said New York's hand sanitizer will be "75% alcohol" and added that the smell has a "floral bouquet."
He said the product will not be sold on the open market at this time. It will be made available in schools and prisons.
