Bangkok to ban booze sales for 11 days, starting from 10 April


Pongsakorn Kwanmuang, Bangkok Metropolitan Administration spokesperson, announced at the press conference earlier today that all alcohol sales will be banned in Bangkok for 11 days, effective on 10 April, as a measure to reduce social gatherings amidst COVID-19 pandemic. 

The ban on alcohol sales will be effective from midnight of 10 April as a measure to halt partying and promote social distancing during the Songkran holidays that have already been postponed. You have until 22:00 tonight to stock up your booze supply! 

Ten other provinces have also banned the sales of alcohol so far: Chiang Mai, Lamphun, Chonburi, Sakon Nakhon, Rayong, Buriram, Mukdahan, Suphanburi, Nakhon Pathom and Surin.
