Alcohol is something else close to impossible to find around here right now. Most of the hand gels I've seen are labeled 70% alcohol. I suppose that's the closest we'll get for the time being.
A lot of the stores have set up carts and tables near the front entrances to sell hand gel and spray disinfectant because of the virus. You will notice that these products all contain 70% alcohol which is all that is needed.
I stocked up on these at the mini-mart in Bang Saray before heading to Buriram, and after arriving, I see the stuff everywhere now.
You shouldn't have a problem finding it. There are several Thai companies that started ramping up production back in January - so there's no shortage.
Also, regarding face masks: It's a good idea to spray your mask with a disinfectant every time you take it off, unless you plan to dispose of it. Don't spray it in your eyes unless you want to fool someone into thinking you have the virus.
