In the Trans-Baikal Territory, a total ban on the retail trade in alcohol products, which lasted four days, was lifted. Restrictions were introduced on April 3 by Governor Alexander Osipov.

The ban on alcohol was justified as anti-crime measure against the background of restrictions adopted in the framework of the fight against the spread of coronavirus infection. 

Since the morning of April 6, the press service of the regional government issued a press release that 90% of entrepreneurs selling alcoholic beverages comply with the temporary ban on the sale of alcohol introduced the day before. Nevertheless, on the evening of April 6, new amendments to the governor's decree were published, which, instead of a total ban on the sale of alcohol, introduce time restrictions. Now you can trade, but only from 9:00 to 18:00. The changes take effect from April 7th.

As noted in the press service of the regional government, during the period of the special regime associated with countering the spread of the new coronavirus infection, the volume of alcohol sales on the territory of Zabaikalskoye increased by 40% and amounted to 839 thousand liters. How much consumption has grown against the background of the self-isolation regime is not reported.
