Amid the COVID-19 outbreak, the government had banned the export of all types of sanitizers in March but limited the restriction in May to only alcohol-based sanitizers.

In June, the government further relaxed the export restrictions and limited the ban on alcohol-based hand sanitizers to only those in containers with dispenser pumps.
