PTT Oil and Retail Business (PTTOR) will sell 100,000 bottles of 70 per cent alcohol through all PTT petrol stations in Bangkok at a special price as of April 4 before expanding sales to its petrol stations nationwide.

 

PTTOR officials said the alcohol had been procured from manufacturers that have registered with the Food and Drug Administration.

 

“This alcohol can be used for cleaning hands and surfaces and should cut down on germs by 99.99 per cent. A one-litre bottle of alcohol will be sold at Bt110,” they said.

 

“Sales are limited to one bottle per person, provided they show their ID card, driver’s licence, civil servant card or a card that carries the buyer’s ID number. Buyers will have to fill out a form with their personal information and keep at least a metre’s distance from each other while queuing up.”

 

Officials said the alcohol will be sold from 9am to noon either in front of the petrol station’s office or inside Jiffy convenience stores at PTT petrol stations on the following dates:

 

April 4: All PTT stations in Bangkok.

April 15: All PTT stations in Nonthaburi, Samut Prakan and Pathum Thani.

April 17: All PTT stations in the East of Thailand.

April 23: All PTT stations in the South.

April 29: All PTT stations in the Northeast.

May 1: All PTT stations in Central provinces.

May 3: All PTT stations in the North and West of Thailand.

 

“Those interested in buying the alcohol can call the 1365 hotline,” officials said, adding that this move is part of operations to mitigate the spread of Covid-19.

 

“PTTOR wants to express concern for Thai people nationwide and wishes the country is able to overcome the situation as soon as possible.”

Selling bottles of 70% alcohol, just when booze is being banned or restricted.

What could possibly go wrong?

The question is, is it ethanol?

Why do they not promote the use of bleach solution for cleaning? A two litre jug of Chlorox is cheaper than their 'alcohol'. A one percent solution should kill 99 percent of bugs.

 

Presumably this 'alcohol' is denatured or is it (more likely) ethanol?

I can get one liter 99.9 % ethanol for just 100 THB at one of my suppliers for one of my companies. It used to be pure ethatnol but nowadays it has an additive to prevent people drinking it.
