Thailand’s Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) has proposed allowing people a two day window to buy alcohol before a new ban is enforced.
The CCSA says a grace period could be introduced for two days between May 1 and 2 to enable people to stock up on booze.
A new order banning the sale of alcohol would then come into effect on May 3.
The proposal was reported across Thai media on Tuesday evening.
The current nationwide ban on the sale of alcohol is set to expire on April 30 and at the time of publishing there has been no official decision on whether or not the ban will be extended.
The ban on the sale of alcohol was initially introduced to stop people from congregating during Songkran in order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
