Using alcohol based sanitizers

Q: With the coronovirus going around and everyone must sanitize their hands... Is it permissible to use alcohol based hand sanitizers?

A: Generally, the alcohol that such products contain are synthetic and chemically produced. If this is the case then such products can be used.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
