Top authoritative sources told Daily Mirror yesterday that discussions were ongoing if Colombo can go for a lockdown for a few days in order to search for more infected people, as well as to stop a possible spread after recent patients were found from some areas.
Sources said that so far a confirmed decision had not been reached but the matter was being discussed at the top level.
Area police stations have also been prepared for a possible lock down but are awaiting further instructions. (Jamila Husain)

    Please ensure that their food requirements are properly met before making any decision to go ahead with it. Especially the poor.

    we very strongly urge the authorities to lock-down the whole country, or at least Colombo for a period of 1 week to start with. The situation is getting very dangerous.

    We very strongly urge authorities to consider the plight of the general public before locking down Colombo or the entire country. Think of the sick who need medicine, people who need access to essential goods and services, including their innocent children. Some people who have wealth and power may quickly gain access to these but not the majority of Sri Lankans.

    Well said Varuna. Some people make comments as if they are from another universe!

    What is the difference between the current curfew which is in operation and intended lockdown?

    Snowball Saturday, 04 April 2020 12:08 PM

    The lockdown presently in operation need to implemented to the rule and need to go on until the curve shows a negative gradient.

    Lock Down in Australia - people can go out only for essential shopping or urgent work. No wandering.

    DillonDP Saturday, 04 April 2020 05:24 PM

    The difference is that no one could come into leave Colombo even with a curfew pass

    Badoosh Saturday, 04 April 2020 05:53 PM

    Most of you have not understand the difference between a curfew and a lockdown. Under lockdown, essential services are available, such as transport, groceries, medicine, food etc and you are not restricted from leaving home.

    George Harry Saturday, 04 April 2020 08:08 PM

    You mean!!!! Immamul Arooz Mawatha? Ok go ahead and find more patients

    Uali Sunday, 05 April 2020 10:50 AM

    Government can use this long curfew period to obtain national statistics
