Face masks and hand sanitizer, two of the most sought after products as people try to protect themselves against COVID-19, were being sold for as much as five times the normal price by these merchants. Tokopedia, an Indonesian unicorn running a successful e-marketplace, has also banned merchants from selling COVID-19-related products using unproven claims.
