FACE mask ceiling price has been set at RM1.50, which is 50 sen cheaper than its current ceiling price.

Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaacob said the new price will take effect from April 1.

He said the government will continue to monitor the price of face masks and if the manufacturers price reduced, a new price will be announced, reports the MalayMail.

When asked if there would be any fixed price for hand sanitisers, Ismail Sabri said there was no ceiling price for sanitisers.

“As we know, hand sanitisers have different brands and the price will be different according to its brand.

“Some are imported and some are produced locally. Therefore, we do not control the price of the hand sanitisers at the moment,” he added.
