In Sri Lanka, the number of covid-19 infections have touched 100 as government has identified three districts including Colombo as high risk districts. Four more patients were tested positive today as the curfew continues throughout the country to prevent COVID spread.
Large crowds were seen visiting shops and supermarkets in Colombo when curfew relaxation was given on Tuesday morning and health officials feared that this could lead to a wider and faster spread of the virus.
Government has decided that the curfew in Colombo and adjoining districts of Gampaha and Kalutara will continue until further notice.
Government also directed wholesale dealers to deliver essential consumer goods to the doorstep of each household until the situation is brought under control. Providing these essential consumer goods such as food, medicine, gas and other services will commence from Wednesday and a special task force has been established for the purpose.
Government urged people to obey curfew restrictions as over 2,200 persons have been arrested for violating the curfew during the last four days.
