COLOMBO (News 1st): President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has directed that no instruction or communication by any Government Agency is issued without consulting Commander of the Sri Lanka Army Lieutenant General Shavendra Silva first.

Lt. General Shavendra Silva is the head of the National Operation Center for Prevention of COVID – 19 outbreak.

The decision was taken by the President following observations made at the COVID -19 National Level Task Force Review meeting on Tuesday.

It was observed that various Government Agencies have issued ad-hoc operational instructions disrupting the routine regular work of the Government and not consistent with the Government’s overall strategy with COVID – 19 management issues.
