Washington D.C. (USA) :

President Donald Trump on Monday issued an executive order to prohibit hoarding and price gouging of medical supplies in the United States amid the coronavirus pandemic which has claimed over 400 lives in the country. "The order will prohibit the hoarding of vital medical equipment and supplies, such as hand sanitizers, face masks, and personal protective equipment," Trump said at the coronavirus task force briefing.  "We will not allow anyone to exploit the suffering of American citizens for their own profit," he added.
