WASHINGTON, DC - MARCH 06: A basket of smaller bottles of hand sanitizer in the coronavirus pop-up store by Adilisha Patrom, owner of the Suites DC, a co-working and event space across the street from Gallaudet University, who started her pop-up store that sells face masks, protective gloves, and hand sanitizer for customers concerned about the spread of the novel coronavirus which causes the COVID-19 disease in the NoMa neighborhood of Washington, DC on March 6, 2020. With the growing spread of the coronavirus around the world it is becoming harder and harder to find protective equipment and hand sanitizer around the country, especially the N95 protective face mask which Patrom is selling for $30, three times its regular cost.

One thing I love about Charlotte is all the local artwork, and murals you can find around the city. This past week, a new piece of art was added to the city.
The mural, which was finished up over the weekend, gives a new meaning to how hard it is to find hand sanitizer in stores right now, with the COVID-19 pandemic going on.
If you’ve tried to find hand sanitizer or really any disinfectant materials in the last two weeks, you’ve probably felt the same way; it’s like finding gold!
The mural is on the 2100 block of North Davidson Street, and the artists, Darion Fleming calls it, “Pure’ll Gold,”
