Nellore: Tippler standing in queue argues liquor best medicine for Covid-19
Serpentine queues were witnessed in front of wine shops on Tuesday all over the state despite the AP government imposing additional 50 per cent excise tax on liquor bottles. Tipplers stood in lines violating social distancing norms and some even did not cover their faces with masks.
When an alcoholic was asked as to why he was standing in queue putting his family into risk, he justified by saying that liquor is the best medicine for Covid-19. Another tippler in Nellore district said he is ready to die contracting coronavirus but cannot live without consuming liquor.
