Drinking curbed in 69 provinces


Recommended Posts

Alcohol consumption in restaurants in 69 re-zoned provinces will be banned starting on Sunday as part of a raft of revised government measures to contain the recent surge of Covid-19 infections.

The Covid-19 zoning status of eight other provinces approved for tourism promotion remains unchanged, meaning alcohol is allowed to be served in restaurants until 9pm.

These decisions were made during Friday's Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) meeting chaired by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, where the government opted for a balanced approach to tourism and curbing Covid-19.


Two things stand out

  1. It is strange that Covid only affects people drinking alcohol, mask off eating food or non-alcoholic drinks no problem INFECTED, the Thai Government has found a correlation between Alcohol and Covid which does not exist.
  2. The CCSA has an agreement with the Covid Virus not to strike in areas zoned as “Tourist Areas” why else would it be safe to Drink Alcohol, which Government says causes Covid, in the “Blue Zones” and not the “Orange Zones”

Do you ever get the feeling they are making it all up as they go along and doing a very bad job of it. If this is the competence of military leadership it’s good job Thailand never goes to war

Yep, all the time :)
They have no clue what they are doing, but feel like they have to be seen to be doing something, anything.

It's a bit like many Thais thinking the doctor didn't help them unless they got some meds from him/her.
