Minister Bandula Gunawardena claims that all Sri Lankans over the age of 30 will be vaccinated by September. The country will reopen after that vaccination milestone, according to the Minister of Trade.
He made this point today during the launching of the new Sathosa branch in Bulathsinhala (July 25).
“By September, we will be the first country in the world to have vaccinated everyone over the age of 30. This country will be open after the vaccination.”
In addition, the Minister addressed the cost of face masks.
“With schools set to resume next week, we plan to meet with manufacturers and negotiate a lower price for a face mask. A face mask now costs Rs 14.”
