Supposedly to reduce stress on the medical system from alcohol-related issues — so that they have MORE capacity to fight COVID-19.
Seems pretty drastic & dramatic.
Appears they already had a ban earlier this year. I obviously did not hear of that.
Gather the ban was introduced without any lead time so folks cannot stockpile.
I am sure there were those that knew about it & made provisions to make a killing on the blackmarket. I know how South Africa, alas, works.
Just think if this happened here or in the U.K.
I would be screwed without my red wine. SMILE.
