Sri Lankans should be especially vigilant for the next two weeks because it is the most crucial time for Sri Lanka to prevent COVID-19 turning into a greater crisis, General Physician attached to the Health Ministry Dr. Ramya Premaratne told the Daily News.

According to Dr. Premaratne, the incubation date is met and many COVID-19 positive people will start to come out and there is a possibility that many people can get infected. “This is the peak and the worst time. Therefore it is very important to stay at home. From today people should not leave home at all.” 

Dr. Premaratne pointed out that all Sri Lankans should stay at home for the next two weeks and should not receive visits from anyone, not even from their family members who are not in the same household. This is what the public can do to support the Government's effort to curb the virus.

Dr. Premaratne stressed that all Sri Lankans should be vigilant during this period. During these two weeks, all infected Sri Lankans will appear and then there will be another two weeks of calm. The COVID -19 Virus in Sri Lanka could diminish by late April if these precautionary steps are fully adhered to.
