Liberation War Affairs Minister withdraws comments over unvaccinated travel
Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Haque has withdrawn his comment over unvaccinated travel by people aged 18 and above following wide criticism.
The minister withdrew his comment through a press release issued by the ministry on Wednesday.
It said all citizens aged above 18 will be brought under vaccination in phases.
On Tuesday, the minister after attending a meeting on coronavirus infection, said that people over 18 years will not be allowed to travel outside without a vaccine.
Travels by adults after August 11 without receiving the COVID vaccine will be treated as a ‘punishable offence’, he added.
