    the big hotels getting a bit relief. The small ones still not allowed to take guests, means the suffering continues.

    The covid-19 will be present for the next 4 months in Sri Lanka. The pandemic will be over for most of the world in few weeks. No tourist will be be visiting Sri Lanka for at least 4 months. The only solution is to lift the curfews and allow the infection to spread. That way herd immunity will be achieved sooner.
