Opt for a partial lockdown – MP Kiriella

The Chief Organiser of the Opposition Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) MP Lakshman Kiriella yesterday (05) requested the government to partially lockdown the country to control the spike in the COVID-19 pandemic.

MP Kiriella urged the Government that if it cannot opt for a total lockdown, it should isolate areas or regions which are greatly affected by the pandemic.

MP Kiriella made these observations joining the second day of the debate held in Parliament on the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic in the country.

MP Kiriella also said the government has failed to curtail the spread of the pandemic and it should take swift decisions to stop any escalation.
