WHO issuing a statement said containment of Covid-19 is feasible and remains the top priority in Sri Lanka.   
The Sri Lanka Preparedness and Response Plan is implemented with the overall goal to interrupt the transmission of the virus from one person to another using a comprehensive blended approach of containment and mitigation.   
Enhanced testing of the contacts of people who have tested positive for Covid-19 has led to the increased identification people who have Covid-19 and appropriate reporting in recent days. 

 
Moreover, the safety of front line workers both health and non-health should be prioritised, and availability of personal protective equipment must be ensured.   


Local innovations have eased the stress for some of these; however, adequate stocks need to be ensured in the event of a spike of cases.   


The contribution from WHO will support the country in its fast and agile response to the outbreak.
