It has been noted that many retail outlets have increased prices at the onset of the current covid-19 outbreak.

we call on the government to run a broad campaign, to discourage this kind of behavior, including passing emergency legislation to curtail the capacity of retailers to artificially increase their prices to maximize their profits.

Whilst there are some buisnesses that are acting in a positive, manner, recognising the current emergency, others simply see opportunities for profit maximization.

The market is not the most effective tool to manage the current crisis, and should not be allowed to chase their self interest during a national emergency.
