Any Sri Lankan arriving in Colombo from any European country during the travel ban period, must either undergo the quarantine process or fly back to the country from where they departed, Airport and Aviation Services Vice Chairman Rajeewasiri Sooriyaarachchi told the Daily Mirror.

He said the reasons that compelled them to impose a travel ban were the reluctance shown by the returnees to go to quarantine centres and the lack of space at quarantine centres.

“There are about 3,000 persons who are being quarantined at the two centres in Batticaloa,” he said.

“According to what we have been observing, the returnees from Coronavirus affected countries are hesitant to go to quarantine centres,” he added.

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) yesterday imposed a two-week travel ban on passengers arriving from France, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Netherlands, Sweden and Austria in the wake of the coronovirus outbreak,.

It will take effect from tomorrow till March 29, 2020. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    Why are Sri Lankans just such an undisciplined people and so selfish. These people have been away from Sri Lanka for months or even years without seeing their family or friends. Two more weeks make no difference. But it makes a big difference for the whole population of the country. But these selfish people can't think that far.
