    I have two questions 1: How did you know if the virus came from China or not from the United States? ; 2: Without China's unpaid assistance and loans, what do you think of our lives now?

    This is a good decision, even Singapore and India followed the same decision as a precautionary act. Only frogs in the wells will creticise this.

    When the Airport was not closed and open for passengers, we read comments from our Sri Lankans criticising the government. Now it is closed and they are now criticising the closure. What a bunch of hateful lot.

    A case of closing the stable door after the horse had bolted. At last the government has come to its senses.
