In order to promote the COVID vaccination drive, liquor stores in Saifai of Uttar Pradesh’s Etawah district started to sell alcohol only to people with COVID-19 vaccinated certificates. ‘We’re selling liquor only after checking the vaccination certificate of the customer,’ said a shopkeeper. Speaking about the instructions to stores, District Excise Officer Kamal Kumar Shukla said that no such order has been issued by the govt. ‘No such order has been issued. The sub-divisional magistrate might have asked liquor sellers to motivate people to get vaccinated,’ he said. A total of 1,80,08,604 vaccine doses have been inoculated in UP.
