COLOMBO (News 1st); Decisions on imposing lockdowns or placing areas in isolation are NOT politically motivated, said Sri Lanka’s State Minister of Primary Health Care, Epidemics and COVID Disease Control Dr. Sudarshini Fernandopulle.

“We make these decisions based on expert opinion and scientific grounds,” said the State Minister adding she cannot agree on unnecessary isolations of certain areas.

The State Minister said Grama Niladhari Divisions are placed in isolation based on the requirement, she said adding that sometimes the entire country may have to be placed in a lockdown in the future if the need arises.
