State Minister Palak, his two sons contract COVID

“I just got my COVID test results. The report said that my eldest son Apurbo, my middle son Arjan and I tested positive,” Palak announced on his verified Facebook page early on Wednesday.

He asked everyone to follow health restrictions and get vaccine doses.

The state minister has been in isolation at home since receiving the report, his Personal Assistant Saddam Hossain told exposetimes.comwhen an attempt was made to call Palak on his phone.

The state minister received his booster dose, the third vaccine dose, only a few days ago and was doing fairly well, he said. Both he and his two sons had light coughs.

“The honourable state minister worked yesterday,” said Shahidul Alam Majumdar, a spokesperson for the ministry. “There was an in-person programme today. It was cancelled. Though he tested positive, none of the rest of us who worked closely with him are sick.”
