    At this time whole world is in trouble. Foreign countries can't help Sri Lanka. Don't expect foreign aid. Sri Lanka has to manage itself. Now all Sri Lankans are idling at home. They just eat , don't produce anything expecting world to feed them. Please control Covid with minimum harm to economy.
