The health authorities, police or the armed forces personnel would conduct various anti-Covid-19 health operations during the festive season in order to prevent the deadly virus spreading on a mass scale, Police Spokesman DIG Ajith Rohana said.

He requested the public to provide the authorities or security officers with details including names, addresses and NIC numbers.

He also urged the people to write down their details on a piece of paper and and keep it with them all the time.

“Whenever the health authorities or security forces or police request for your details, you could submit the details which have noted in the piece of paper, instead of filling up forms or creating any document,” the police  spokesman said.

He said only a few people carry business cards and that it is also sufficient for the purpose.(Darshana Sanjeewa Balasuriya)

    Why not deploy the air force also? It is beautiful to see heavily armed Sri Lankan soldiers on the road ready to arrest or shoot someone with Covid. No other country has such beautiful and heavily armed soldiers as Sri Lanka.
