Imposing travel restrictions could be taken even this evening or tomorrow, Cabinet spokesman Keheliya Rambukwella said today.

He said the discussion related to the above should be taken at the coronavirus Committee meeting. However, with the current outbreak of the pandemic, decisions will be taken considering the circumstances and the situation that prevails in the region.

But the Government might take a different decision by this evening or tomorrow whether to impose travel restrictions considering the situation in India and the cooperation shown by the people, Rambukwella said.

"'People in our country are well educated to understand the prevailing danger," the Minister said.

However, given the current situation, there is no need to close the whole country, he added. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)

    "There's going to be a total lockdown, there's not going to be a total lockdown. The people in this country are irresponsible, the people in the country are responsible" The mumblings of a madman!

    You are right, ''people in our country are well educated to understand the prevailing danger'', but unfortunately our elected members of parliaments, including yourself, do not fall under that category thus all the prevailing danger. Very unfortunate!!!!

    Mithula Tuesday, 04 May 2021 05:30 PM

    How can we believe what you are saying is true! You were the same guy who said that there are no Indian tourists entering Srilanka! You are supposed to be cabinet spokesman! I guess President doesn’t trust you so he doesn’t give you all the information.

    If you want to save your skin politically go for a lockdown immediately, otherwise with 6.9 million people you will be doomed.

    Jef Wednesday, 05 May 2021 01:53 PM

    You saying our people are educated.....may be not civilized government need good decision making members in the front line to do what's best for the country and citizens first then look at economy and the rest by priotysin one by one.... accordingly decision makers must be on top to prioritise every action to prevent vivid and economy I think government leaders have to get the best team to tackle the covid and let others concentrate invidual portfolio to tackle other issues honest n humble advice
