This is the latest from Richard Barrow, anybody tried to buy alcohol in these provinces today.

 

According to the Ministry of Interior, at least 47 provinces now have a ban on the sale of alcohol:

1) Until further notice: Chon Buri, Phitsanulok & Phuket
2) Until April 15: Rayong & Ranong
3) Until April 16: Sakon Nakhon, Yala, Phichit, Lop Buri & Chiang Rai

The ban was initiated to prevent crowds of young, and not so young, people from crowding together and sharing a few drinks with their fellow 'rebels'!  Perhaps during these 'drinking sessions' a deck of cards may materialize or, heaven forbid, some might want to discuss the draconian measures being taken across the nation and around the world to combat an invisible enemy.

It would make sense if the dates were standardized in all provinces.

No it wouldn't because song gran is celebrated at different dates in provinces around Thailand duh.

No restrictions yet imposed for Chanthaburi province, based upon Tesco-Lotus and 7-11 still selling, expect they would be first to shut down sales if alcohol sales were to be stopped.

Puyai here in Mueang Nakhon Sawan just announced alcohol ban 12-22 April 

In the whole province? Puyai shouted today something but nothing about alcohol. My gf isnt the best news source. Amphoe nong bua/ban sa ngam.

Well done, decrease death and infections.

Meantime on our lockdown, our cellar is full of fine wines, pool ready lawn well trimmed, mango threes almost ripe, we will enjoy one of the quite Songkran and tonight ready for the first bottle a blanc de blanc Billecart Salmon.

Doubt it..........:coffee1:

It forces consumers of alcohol to travel to the neighboring province where queues will develop for the limited periods that alcohol can be legally sold under normal circumstances (eventhough one wonders what is "normal" in Thailand.  Legal hours are 11:00 - 14:00 and 17:00 - 24:00 according to some ruling from the dark days of dictatorships-only.  Forgotten for a few decades but re-activated by nobody less than Thaksin-in-excile-Shinawatra. And then worsened by the current PM to apply not only to retail volumes of < 10 liters but also to wholesale volumes.  An attempt to out-Thaksin, Thaksin.

 

The end result is imo a greater chance of transfer of the Covid-19 virus by the queuing alcoholics.

 

Instead, the government should make is mandatory for all big supermarkets to be opened for 24 hours per day (24/7) so that we can spread our shopping hours and reduce chance of getting infected.

A decent sized gambling den was busted a few days ago in Nonthaburi. Not sure if alcohol was involved but several of the local constabulary got sent to inactive posts 😄
