Condom Manufacturing company Durex has recorded a decline in sales of condom, which according to them was as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Speaking to the CNBC on Thursday the CEO of Durex parent company Reckitt Benckiser, Laxman Narasimhan said the decline in sales of condoms in some countries has impacted their company negatively.

“The number of intimate occasions is down in a few countries because, if you think of it, the level of socialization is low, and so it has had an impact on Durex,” Narasimhan said.
