Do not go out for non-essential purposes - Health Minister

The Government does not expect people to visit towns, etc today (Monday 11th) for non-essential purposes. Although there is no community spread of COVID-19 in Sri Lanka, the public should stay at home without going out for non essential things, Health, Nutrition and Indigenous Medicine Minister Pavithra Wanniarachchi said.

Addressing media at the National Operation Centre for Prevention of COVID-19 Outbreak she said that those who are under home quarantine,especially who are connected to the Navy clusters should stay at home without going out. The Government decided to open the country considering the current situation of COVID-19 in Sri Lanka which is satisfactory.

All clusters had been extinguished and only the Navy cluster is still active and there are no other COVID-19 patients in Sri Lanka who appear from the society or other areas such as Suduwella or Bandaranaike Mawatha. Therefore, there is no community transmission of COVID-19 in Sri Lanka.

The Government will open the country today with two main objectives. They are opening the state and private sectors to re-start the economic activities, she added.
