Sri Lanka prescribes 6 months prison for individuals who conceal contraction with coronavirus

AIR PIC
Sri Lankan government has prescribed six months prison for individuals who conceal contraction with coronavirus as it tightens its grip to control the virus spread. DIG police Ajith Rohana said in Colombo today that steps will be taken enabling arrest of such individuals without a warrant. The move comes as there were couple of individuals returning from Italy, who escaped the immigration and quarantine procedure by having fever control pills. Government also announced that steps are being taken to identify and quarantine those who had arrived from Italy between the 1st and 9th of this month and had not undergone a quarantine period. 

A public holiday has been announced for tomorrow to restrict the number of COVID cases which has risen to 11 in the country. General public have been requested to refrain from going on trips and tours in Sri Lanka over the next two weeks. Jaffna International Airport in Tamil-dominated northern province has been closed for foreign flights, connecting it to Chennai.
