Talaimannar has been proposed to bury Muslim coronavirus victims, Daily Mirror learns. 

Government sources said that Talaimannar island had been proposed as the safest option considering some concerns raised by certain experts. 


A source said that when the matter was discussed by the cabinet last week most of the cabinet Ministers had agreed to the proposal.   Daily Mirror learns that initially a proposal was made to bury the remains of Muslim coronavirus victims at the main Muslim burial grounds 


in Colombo.   However, most Ministers shot down the idea saying it may pose a risk and would also ignite 
some tensions.   Subsequently, a proposal was made that Talaimannar be considered as it is an island with mainly dry land.   Daily Mirror learns that a committee of health experts have been advised to study the matter and revert.
