The Liberation War Affairs Ministry on Wednesday issued a media statement revising its minister’s previous remarks.

“All citizens above 18 years will be brought under vaccination in phases. But the unvaccinated ones above 18 years won’t be allowed to go out after August 11. This statement was published in different media and Liberation War Affairs Minister Mozammel Haque has withdrawn this part of his statement,” the media release says.
