I haven't grasped the fundamental advantage of hydro-alcoholic gel over soap. Maybe it acts faster, a definite advantage at work. State propaganda makes any opinion difficult: instead of "leave the face masks and alcohol for hospitals", the secret police tells "don't use any, they are useless".
Maybe you find true isopropyl alcohol on the Web in a next attempt?
What lockdown means depends on each government. Here in Germany we can still go to the supermarket, but about any shop is closed, including internet cafés, and even banks and pharmacies despite they're explicitly allowed to open. So pile up goods, taking in account that if you're sick you shall stay at home 2 weeks after the end of the symptoms. Rice and noodles are easy, everyone thinks of toilet paper, but vitamins are more difficult to keep: grape...
It looks like the number of ancestors you lose depends on whether hospitals are overwhelmed, and the figures I see from Britain, not Ireland, are truly alarming. In Austria, Germany... the multiplication of the infections calms down since the lockdown. In both countries, the mortality is still low despite the big number of infected people - but consumables and workforces may be exhausted in a week. So it does make sense to slow down the spread, even for young healthy people.
I don't know how efficient it is, I know it looks ridiculous, and I'll go on:https://www.chemicalforums.com/index.php?topic=103351.0
