Amazon accused of hiking prices on essential items during early Covid-19 days

Public Citizen, a Washington-based consumer advocacy group, has claimed that Amazon had hiked the prices of essential items in the early days of the coronavirus outbreak. They say the e-commerce giant did so despite saying it was cracking down on third-party sellers on its platform who were doing the same thing. Amazon refuted the claims and said it would favor a law banning price gouging.

Amazon sure did this, as well as permit all their third party sellers to sell scarcity at whatever the market could bear at the time.
