LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Nevada's Attorney General has issued a warning against price gouging, as fears of coronavirus continue to ramp up.

So far, there have been four "presumptive positive" cases of the virus in Nevada, two in Clark County, two in Washoe County. Both cases still need to be confirmed by the Centers For Disease Control in Atlanta.

Nevada AG Aaron Ford tweeted out a warning to retailers not to gouge cutomers when it came to high-in-demand supplies like cleaners, disinfectants, masks and hand sanitizer.

Ford's remarks echo those of Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak when he spoke about Nevada's coronvirus preparations last week.

If you think you've been the victim of price gouging, the Attorney General's Office has an online page where you can file a complaint.
