Prachuap Khiri Khan governor orders alcohol ban

The provincial governor of Prachuap Khiri Khan has ordered a ban on the sale of alcohol in a bid to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

 

Late on Thursday, provincial governor Panlop Singhaseni, announced that the sale of alcohol would be banned throughout the province until 30th April.

 

The order applies to all retailers and wholesalers of all kinds of liquor and alcoholic beverages.

 

Any person who violates the order faces fines of up to 100,000 baht, a prison sentence up to 2 years or both.

 

The order was issued just hours after officials in Bangkok announced a ban on alcohol sales.

 

There are already at least 10 other provinces in Thailand which have banned alcohol sales over what would traditionally have been the Songkran holidays. 

 

Earlier this week, Chiang Mai announced an alcohol ban, while it was also announced on Tuesday that Ubon Ratchathani would ban the sale of alcohol.

No...the air we breath will be next. No brainer. If you can catch it through breathing then stopping people breathing will prevent new cases.

 

It will be tried for 24 hours. A minute before midnight on the given date we will all be asked to take a very deep breath and hold it for the duration.

 

Sound ridiculous ? Maybe but is merely following the current pattern favored by this current government of dimwits.

One upping the other governors who have opted to the go to the 20th.

 

I can only see the major dissent starting to spread with all the other restriction and hardships the locals are having to face.

Good decision that will prevent many Thais and foreigners to make stupid decisions like running around without face mask and floating the curfew among much else.

interesting the psychological effect of being told you can't do something.

 

i don't drink but my first thought was to go buy some beers.  

 

let's see how the Thais are during Songkran. Maybe 24 curfew if they don't stay home.

Light blue touch paper and stand well back.

Not even chance to stock up that's evil

time to run around the mom and pop shops with every other person so much for social distancing to buy what's left

This situation has suddenly risen from being a little bit miffed to absolute unmitigated disaster

So, why is everywhere else stopping the sale of alcohol for 10 days, yet our esteemed Governor has banned it until the end of the month? probably the answer is "Because he can".
