It is not necessary to impose a lockdown in the country in a situation where COVID-19 is not widespread, Director General of Health Services (DGHS) Dr. Anil Jasinghe yesterday.  

“The virus is only confined to some areas,” he said, and added that a lockdown has been imposed in certain areas in Rajanganaya where an instructor who was an employee at the East Kandakadu Treatment and Rehabilitation Centre tested positive for COVID-19.  


Travel has also been restricted to Rajanganaya Yaya 01, 03 and 05 while essential food items and other necessities are being provided to the residents.   


Dr. Jasinghe said 534 cases had been detected in the Kandakadu cluster so far, while 25 cases were reported from society resulting from the Kandakadu cluster.  


“We continue to carry out PCR tests in Rajanganaya and other vulnerable areas including some selected areas,” he said adding that some 3,000 PCR tests had been carried out in Kandakadu.  Meanwhile, he said intelligence services have beefed up their surveillance across the country to detect COVID-19 cases, but there were no signs to suggest the viral infection had spread across the country.
