Convenience stores in Chonburi have been ordered to close between 10pm to 5am daily, the provincial governor announced on Friday.

 

The move, which includes stores such as 7-Eleven and Family Mart, is the latest measure introduced in the province to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

 

The closure order comes into effect on Friday 27 March. 

 

Meanwhile, officials have also announced that beaches in Pattaya and Chonburi are out of bounds to the public between 8pm and 6am.

Close 7/11 at certain times??..??..??..

That's incredibly stupid to limit opening hours for shops where u can buy groceries (snacks etc.).

Because that means that people will be forced to shop at the same times.

 

And that means that the virus could spread because people are shopping at the same time.

 

If anything, they should make some kind of opening hours for people over 70 years of age, so they don't come into contact with the rest of the population.

But maybe it won't work here in Asia, since people stay together many generations, and the elderly don't go shopping anyway - they stay home and watch their grand kids.

 I agree.  The shopping hours should be extended, where possible, to not condense the shopping public into a shorter time slot.

 

The extended family model certainly doesn't help things.  

 

Even if grandmother and grandfather stay home, the kids and grand kids can bring it home to them.

ehhh, maybe show your ID to enter a 7/11 if they think you're over 70?  Special hours that 70+yr olds can shop (sort of like the alcohol rules)? Segregate the aged people?

 

You don't happen to work for or ever have worked for a government anywhere...?

Mostly they would send the kids often on a motorbike to get the shopping...the motorbike is more dangerous than the virus for the kids.

That's not the half of it now.

Sorry if this appears alarmist, but reading the article below it seems the virus can survive on plastic and stainless steel for up to 72 hours.

As our motorbike has plastic handgrips on the handlebars and three of us use the motorbike, it's a possible device to pass on the virus.

For all we know, someone else could have coughed/spat on the handgrips while it was parked outside a shop.
