Mass Tort and Product Liability   |   April 8, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have an unprecedented impact around the world, leaving medical, hygiene, and health products in short supply — and hand sanitizer, in particular.

Dow, a world-leading materials science company, recently expanded its capabilities to produce hand sanitizer at its facilities around the world, putting its global assets to work to help combat the spread of the coronavirus. In a press release, Dow said it will donate the majority of the produced hand sanitizer to health systems and government agencies for distribution. Hand sanitizer will also be distributed to Dow production sites to help protect employees who are on the front line and ensuring Dow’s manufacturing facilities continue to run safely.
