    Who pays the expenses? Is it the tax payer?

    And do you want to put a policeman in front of every 1217 people's front door to monitor quarantine compliance? What an idiotic decision. The police, in particular, should know that there is no discipline among Sri Lankans. Lock them all in quarantine camps and let them pay the cost. These people only learn the hard way.

    It’s called the Totalitarianism. What a load of crap, these ppl are trying to make us feel like we are Chinese ppl who would be mind controlled. There are so many doctors (Not the LC docs) with studies and proof saying wearing mask and disinfecting the environment is an utter rubbish. Wht abt ppl spitting on the streets wnt the virus sprd on tht? Is this country gona becm like Singapore? (if we want we will wear mask in any individual’s private property like Markets, Gover Dept and etc, if they ask for it, but not on the streets as street belongs to every living beings and not only for humans) Can anyone make a DOG, CAT, CROW, BAT, or any animal wear a mask??? As some dummies say it dsn’t affect animals, so it’s an excuse for them too to eat the animals with the blind fold, what sort of a stupidity is this? I feel pity for all the mind controlled ppl who still believes these things without using their own instinct and the truth which is being censored. People should WAKE UP!
