I think it's good that there are no more flights at the moment. First, the virus must beand then people can go home.

Seriously? Do you know the experience of being stranded in another country without a job? All the people came to Sri Lanka went through 1 month quarantine. 2 weeks hotel and 2 weeks home. And went through PCR testing. And where is this virus from then? It's within the country.

See this issue is that why always sri lankan has to close the airport it's very clear that Sri lankan government did not do any random checks unlike other countries and even see the civilians all of the videos we see no one has worn a mask gloves so why do these people always think it's from people who come from abroad becouse no checked were done within the country
Government must know once a person lose a job that person will not have a way to pay rents , food, utilities and once you lose your job you will not have VISA so if you dont have visa you will be charged a overstay fine at leat the sri lankan government has to amend the visa and fine cost of the stranded unemployed people at leat for the times when the airport is close.....
