Online desk ; Health Minister Zahid Malik has expressed the hope that availability of coronavirus vaccines will make the use of masks an optional matter.
“Wearing masks will be an optional matter in future after the discovery of coronavirus vaccine,” said the minister on Friday.

He urged people to wear masks till the availability of vaccines in Bangladesh.

The Health Minister made the remarks at a doa mahfil arranged to mark the death anniversary of former UP chairman Abdus Salam at Saturia upazila in Manikganj district.
