National Aquatic Resources Research and Development Agency or NARA says the jellyfish infestation that was prevalent along the Western and Southern coastal areas has dropped.

Scientist Upul Liyanage said that, accordingly, those beaches that were closed to the public due to the threat of jellyfish are now open.

Warnings were issued to the public to refrain from swimming in several coastal regions as a large number of jellyfish were washing ashore in  June.

Several incidents of people being stung by jellyfish and hospitalised were reported from the Mount Lavinia, Dehiwala and parts of the South and West coasts over June.
