    "No more new clusters." Yes sar, we believe you. The only remaining cluster that will keep growing is the Sri Lankan cluster! Go on fooling the idiotic slaves in the country, as they will believe anything and everything you say. That is the nature of slaves.

    President should realize that Army Commander and the Police spokesperson cannot control this virus, they must obtain the specialized experts advice to control the virus such as Doctors.
