COLOMBO (News1st): Several individuals in areas that are under curfew have been affected amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, News1st’s correspondents reported on Thursday.

“We are helpless. We are compelled to go to the streets to find food,” one resident lamented.

Businessmen, traders, and self-employed individuals have been severely inconvenienced due to the prevailing situation, the correspondents observed.

Locals of Ganemulla that provides shelter to approximately 50 families earn a living by farming and daily wage employment.
