This is an update to the earlier post: Where to buy surgical mask Singapore.
- Basically, surgical masks are totally sold out in pharmacies like Watsons, Guardian, Unity, etc. Hand sanitizers are still in stock though, if you are interested to buy.
- Korean masks on Qoo10 are mostly out of stock.
- Currently, Qoo10 carries mainly Indonesian and Vietnam surgical masks, market price is around S$50 per box of 50 masks, i.e. around S$1 per mask.
The below Qoo10 shop (local stock) carries masks made in Indonesia and Vietnam masks (3 ply), with certificates. Basically, according to the reviews, the masks are genuine, only issue is that it is quite pricey. Apparently, the high price is set by the mask manufacturers and suppliers, it is not entirely the fault of the Qoo10 sellers that the price is so high. (Basic economics: High demand + low supply = High price.)
Example of certificate for made-in-Indonesia mask:
According to the above Qoo10 seller, the current batches would be the last batches as Indonesia has crackdown on export of surgical mask. Vietnam has also banned export.
