We do not condone inflating prices in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak. We want our products to be readily available to protect those most in need.

Inflated prices on Clinell products.

In light of the coronavirus outbreak, we’re experiencing a very high demand for our Clinell hand and surface disinfection products. We’d like to thank those who have brought to our attention the inflated prices seen on several online retailers.

These inflated prices are the result of third-party resellers operating on these platforms. GAMA Healthcare are actively working with our distribution partners to counteract these inflated prices.

In conjunction with global healthcare authorities, our suppliers, partners and customers, we’re securing additional inventory so we can continue to provide essential disinfectant products to combat the coronavirus outbreak.

Amazon alone have already removed over 1,000,000 products from re-sellers making false claims and overcharging. We’re working with them to rectify the situation for Clinell products.

Unfortunately, the problem isn’t just limited to Clinell products, or to Amazon. Private re-sellers are grossly overcharging for alcohol gel, surface disinfectants and face masks.

How you can help.

If you do see any Clinell products at inflated prices, please let us know at info@gamahealthcare.com. Any information you can provide will help us make sure Clinell products are delivered to the people who need it, at a price that’s fair.

In the meantime, we’d encourage people not to panic and to follow public health guidance: Department of Health & Social Care (UK)Centres for Disease Control (USA) or World Health Organization (international).

To make sure you’re buying products directly from GAMA, you can visit our Clinell Amazon store and order the products directly from there.

Thank you.

We’d also like to say a special thank you to all our teams across the globe. They’ve been working hard, throughout this outbreak, to make sure we can meet the increased demand and get effective disinfectants to the people who need it most.
