Scientists, please, have at it — and share the supplies!

The World Health Organization offers a step-by-step guide to make hand sanitizer.

Thankfully not every story about hand sanitizer and the coronavirus is the story of some hoarding sociopath who bought up thousands of bottles so he could price-hike the supplies.

Did you know that hospitals, pharmacists and scientists with the right supplies can make plenty of hand sanitizer for the rest of the world to stay safe and infection-free? (Too bad Walter White is not only a fictional character but likely far too busy making meth.)

Look no further than the World Health Organization’s step-by-step recipe guide to make all the off-brand Purell that your (rightly) germaphobic heart desires.

And salute to all of the industrious men and women of science making this happen!
