When the curfew was lifted

People rushed out to buy fuel, medicine and provisions and also engage in banking activities after the curfew was lifted in Colombo and several other areas yesterday. Most people adhered to the social distancing measure of keeping one metre apart from each other but at some places this was observed in the breach, posing a health risk. Ample goods were available for the public, though queues were seen at most places and police were also on hand. The Government has since announced several measures to enable people to buy essential commodities during curfew hours, including home delivery.
