Covid-19 outbreak:

Information only through Task Force

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has instructed that no government agency should issue an advisory or communique without the prior consent of the Presidential Secretariat in the wake of fears over the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

The President has said that such action should be taken only on the instructions of Army Commander Lieutenant General Shavendra Silva, the head of the National Operations Centre on COVID-19.

The President made this decision during the Task Force meeting convened at the Presidential Secretariat yesterday, after observing that various state agencies had issued temporary operational instructions that interfered with the normal functioning of the government and did not comply with the overall government strategy.
