The move is part of the campaign to tackle the Covid-19 crisis, Sontirat Sontijirawong, Minister of Energy, said recently.
“PTTOR has purchased the handwash gels from a producer, guaranteed by the Food and Drug Administration, in the products’ standard,” he said. “The products will be distributed at 310 gas stations in Bangkok and nearby provinces, totalling one million tubes.”
On March 16, 4,000 handwash gels will be distributed only at the Vibhavadi 11 branch station, due to shortage in the market.
However, people can receive the tubed gels at the 310 stations from March 16 to April 20. Every Monday some 250,000 tubes will be distributed.
