From the experience in South Korea entire saga is going to blow off like in South Korea, Italy and UK. Due to not following basic requirements of self quarantine for 14 days and social distancing, hundreds of Sri Lankan and others are going to die. There will be a pandemic in Sri Lanka and due lack of hospital beds, protective wears, and ventilators. Sri Lankan airport officials will be blamed for letting the Pastor to fly back, while infecting hundreds others on his multiple transits and flights. All those people who were in contact should be traced and warned. President should appoint a task force to investigate and punish the perpetuators.
