No plans are underway to impose islandwide curfew or curfew in any other area, other than those already under lock down, said Lieutenant General Shavendra Silva, who also heads the National Centre for the Prevention of COVID-19.

The Army Commander urged the general public to refrain from panic buying, which will only lead to overcrowding at supermarkets and other outlets, increasing the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

Speaking to Journalists in Colombo he said, quarantine curfew has already been imposed in areas that have been identified as high risk zones and added that ” as of now, we have not decided on imposing curfew in any other area during the weekend.”
