The meeting approved the drafts of 4 out of 6 proposals. Apart from one proposal, three proposals have been notified to the concerned department.

Regarding other proposals, the cabinet secretary said that the presence of people in social and political events should be limited to curb the spread of coronavirus infection. Proposal for ban students, who have not received the two doses of vaccine, has been approved.
