On May 4, the country might have seen the weirdest thing ever done by the Indians. Amid the coronavirus lockdown, liquor shops all around the nation were allowed to reopen and start the sales. From the morning, several photos and videos were coming of people, standing on large queues to purchase and stock liquors.

The thrust for alcohol was clearly seen throughout the day as people forgot about their safety and stood in lines. No social distancing was followed at all. Only very few liquor shops in the country really did the necessary things for their customers safety.
