8 Sharjah pharmacies shut down for overpriced masks


SHARJAH – Eight pharmacies in Sharjah were shut down after customers complained that they sold overpriced facemasks and hand sanitizers.

Inspectors from the Sharjah Economic Development Department found the pharmacies illegally hiking prices of the items that were currently in demand due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The team inspected a total of 28 pharmacies in Sharjah, issued fines to four pharmacies, and gave notices to nine others.

According to the Sharjah authority, the public can report any violations of price increases through the hotline 8080000 or through ICA/Expat Media
