Colombo (News 1st);  Lieutenant General Shavendra Silva, the Commander of the Sri Lanka Army said the COVID-19 pandemic is yet to be wiped out from Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka was successful in preventing community transmission within a period of 50 days, said the Army Commander noting the present cases reported in Sri Lanka are all expatriates who return to the country.

However, he said this does not prevent the Sri Lanka Army from continuing its exercises and activities adding the Army is prepared to face any situation in the country with training carried out with strict restrictions in place to prevent the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

The iconic symbol of Sri Lankan gallantry, bravery, devotion, discipline, loyalty, and great skill, the Sri Lanka Army will mark its 71st anniversary on the forthcoming 10 October 2020 which is also recognized as the Army Day.

The invocation of blessings symbolically on all the Army flags took place at the Temple of Sacred Tooth Relic on Monday (28).
