The number of night curfew violators has continued to rise following the reinstatement of alcohol sales over the weekend.
On the first night after alcohol sales were allowed again, curfew violations spiked with 690 people breaking the nationwide lockdown between 10 pm and 4 am.
The figures have continued to rise as the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration reported that there were a further 699 recorded curfew violations on Tuesday night.
There was also a total of 104 incidents of public gatherings across the country between Tuesday and Wednesday.
Of the violations, almost half were related to alcohol with people either gathering to drink with friends or traveling home after curfew hours due to alcohol-related activities.
The other major reason for curfew violations was gambling with many people traveling back from gambling events after curfew hours.
According to the Royal Thai Police, the province with the highest number of violations between Tuesday and Wednesday was Phuket with 55 people caught out during curfew hours.
Pathum Thani (54) and Ratchaburi (31) were the second and third-worst offenders on the list.
