Do You Think That Banning Alcohol During Covid-19 Lockdown Is A Necessity?
Closed

South Africa announced the banning of alcohol sales during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Do you think that it was a necessity or that the lockdown can still be a success with or without the banning of alcohol?

I think the ban will help us a lot cause when people are out drinking they are exposed to many people and the virus can be spread easily so when people are home it can be easier to locate and stop the spread.

Apparently consumers of alcohol and nicotine are more at risk of developing complications if infected with Covid-19. I read it somewhere, can't remember where.

No.
I actually think alcohol should not be banned as many S.Africans use it as a coping mechanism. It will therefore decrease panic and stress.

Alcohol is not banned, because you can still drink at home if you stockpiled booze before the lockdown you can stil drink it.
Since some people don't know their limit and act irresponsibly when drunk it is necesssary to ensure social distancing and other reasons

yes it was necessary because alcohol promotes negative behaviour if consumed in excess and this was bound to happen during lockdown

This is a tough one. There are obvious reasons why the banning of alcohol was a good idea but there are responsible people who consume alcohol too...

My husband had a good point about this - it's for safety reasons. For instance the case of domestic violence - it is usually aggravated by alcohol.

The ban of alcohol during the south african shut down was a necessity , as the ban prevents people from drinking and driving which can prove to be fatal
