Images from a Lubbock Walmart location show shortages of hand sanitizer, antibacterial soap, isopropyl alcohol and various antibacterial cleaning products.

We called a United Market Street location, a Walmart location and a Target location and were told the hand sanitizer was currently out of stock at those stores.

Only the Target location was positive they would have more stock soon.

Stores nationwide have reported shortages of hand sanitizer, due to people stocking up in fear of the coronavirus, according to the Associated Press.

According to the AP, sales of hand sanitizers across the country were up 73% compared to the same period in 2019.
