Denying media reports that there would be travel restrictions in areas where the new variant has been detected, Primary Health Care, Epidemics and COVID Disease Control State Minister Sudarshani Fernandopulle said the health authorities were closely monitoring the situation and actions would be taken accordingly.
She told Daily Mirror that there would not be any extra measures though a few cases of new variant had been identified in the country.
“The Epidemiology Unit is monitoring these new cases very closely. Whenever there are new clusters of cases, the movements are restricted,” she said.
“The measures that we have been taking would be implemented when the number of cases increases, whereas there won’t be extra restrictions,” she added.
The State Minister also reiterated that the reports, which say that the country would be placed under lock down were false.
