    Booze industry urges govt to lift prohibition

    Alcohol-industry organisations have asked the prime minister to lift the ban on selling alcohol, imposed as part of measures to curb the spread of Covid-19. The request came in a proposal from seven organisations led by the Thai Fruit Wine and Local Spirit Producer Association, Thailand Bartender Association, and Thai Wine Association to ease alcohol-related restrictions.


    The alcohol associations asked the government not to prolong the prohibition on sales beyond April 30, and allow beer and liquor to be sold via take-away and delivery services.

    The ban was set up because people were gathering in each other homes...not respecting social-distancing. Without alcohol, these gatherings are less attractive. Of course, there's still alcohol available if you look for it.

    Like my neighbours who kept inviting 8/10 people for dinner and some drinks, I actually saw them significantly more often than prior to the covid situation, they must be bored.

    That's the basic crux as such applies to instinctively social/familiar cultures and their natural extensions - a burden that finds difficulty to break from.
