Until solution found, can’t place country under lock down: President

November 04, 2020

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa today said that the behaviour of the people cannot be consistently determined by imposing curfew alone and it was impossible to place the country under lockdown until a feasible solution is found to curb the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The people must prepare themselves to continue with their normal way of life while following health guidelines,” he said at a meeting at the Presidential Secretariat today.

He also instructed the police to strictly implement the curfew in respective areas to mitigate the spread of the virus.
