Lockdown and Prohibition

The prefect of Aisne has backtracked after having taken advice from several addiction experts: no, banning alcohol during lockdown will not stop domestic violence. Faced with the fear of seeing acts of family violence, or even femicide, multiply, a number of French government officials judged it necessary to ban sales of “strong” alcohol, such as whisky, during the lockdown. Although the prefect of Aisne reversed his decision, after having consulted experts on this delicate question, local authorities in French Polynesia have upheld their ban.
