Cough Medicine Is Latest Hard-to-Find Item on Sparse Shelves
As COVID-19 cases surge across America, over-the-counter cold and sore throat medicines are getting harder to find. Fox News’s Dana Perino says she experienced the shortage first-hand over the holidays when she started feeling ill. She said all she could find was a throat spray for children. CVS said in a statement, “We’re currently seeing increased demand for cold and cough products. We’re working with our suppliers to ensure continued access to these items.” Walgreens echoed the sentiment.
