    Covid tourism!! Not allowing citizens to come but this sh*t gets allowed

    Sam Thursday, 31 December 2020 08:51 AM

    Stop this idiocy, in the pictures at the airport the Ukrainians are not wearing masks properly. The Minister of tourism and his entourage didnt even bother wearing masks, I guess they are too important!!

    Definition of one county one law. If a Sri Lanka citizen is found to be Covid positive his close associates are put under quarantine . If a a foreigner is found to be positive only he/she will be under quarantine

    Great news !!!

    Samson Thursday, 31 December 2020 09:07 AM

    Let us get more tourists so that we can increase the positive numbers.

    DGee Thursday, 31 December 2020 09:10 AM

    Another disaster. All arrivals need confining and PCR testing. Revenue may outdo our loss.

    Leel Thursday, 31 December 2020 09:10 AM

    Uodayanga Weerathunga and his topshots in the govenment are habitual coorks will do any thing to earn money.

    The Minister of Tourism should be responsible for this. He is putting Sri Lankan's lives in danger.

    FF Thursday, 31 December 2020 09:24 AM

    WHAT DOES THE GOVT THINK BY GETTING DOWN TOURISTS FROM UKRAINE? THEY ASKED FOR NOTHING BUT TROUBLE. WAS THIS PLANNED TO MAKE MONEY BY SENDING THEM TO QUARANTINE TO HOTELS RUN BY HENCHMEN?

    FF Thursday, 31 December 2020 09:25 AM

    THE BUBBLE HAS BURST

    Kumaran, Wattala Thursday, 31 December 2020 09:37 AM

    Why this hurry to bring these tourists from Ukraine. Who benefits from this, the govt or individuals. Earlier we were told by a minister that the second wave originated from Ukranian visiters. Why don't the govt think twice before inviting these tourists to our country.

    Ilyas Thursday, 31 December 2020 10:04 AM

    What's going to happen to the citizen awaiting repatriation paid or otherwise? Would this be another reason to stop this process?

    Anthony. R Thursday, 31 December 2020 10:58 AM

    One Country One Law? ??? They say in sinhala illang kanawa. This Udayanga cluster will plunge SriLanka to the bottom. Do we deserve. Saw how the minister and officials with no mask and even some of the tourist

    Ram Thursday, 31 December 2020 11:10 AM
