By JAMILA HUSAIN
The Health Ministry yesterday evening dispelled rumours that Colombo city or any other province will come under a lockdown following a rise in the number of COVID-19 patients, but added that preventive measures were being updated on a daily basis.
“As of now there is no truth to Colombo being lockeddown. However, our medical teams are closely monitoring the situation here and are making decisions which will benefit the citizens and prevent a public spread of the virus,” an official from the Health Ministry said.
