    Why are they shy to call a spade a spade and a lockdown a lockdown without causing confusion.

    RoaringCreek Monday, 17 May 2021 06:22 PM

    Absolute chaos. Why not shut down the country till the end of the month. No can do and the China sponsored Port City bill has to be tabled and approved in parliament.

    Char Monday, 17 May 2021 06:49 PM

    Travel restrictions are of no use. What a joke! Impose a complete lockdown to curb the current situation.

    GGT Monday, 17 May 2021 06:52 PM

    REAL DRAMA!

    Chris Monday, 17 May 2021 07:01 PM

    Chris Monday, 17 May 2021 07:08 PM

    Bravo, government said no lockdown. It comes under a different name as a travel restriction. Hodatama keruwae apithama

    Bernard Monday, 17 May 2021 07:41 PM

    In other words this is islandwide curfew but the authorities don't use the word because they have vowed not to resort to a total lockdown or impose curfew islandwide but it is going to happen using synonyms.

    karu Monday, 17 May 2021 07:50 PM

    so odd number IC number guys get 3 days and even numbers get 2 days only ?

    Dee Monday, 17 May 2021 08:24 PM

    Jeewes Jupiter Monday, 17 May 2021 08:28 PM

    Does this administration have no spine to say the word "lockdown" ???? What good is saying " there will not be any lockdown of the country but dont leave your homes as there will be a travel restriction in place" ??????

    Lanka Shantha Monday, 17 May 2021 08:43 PM

    B. Bandara Tuesday, 18 May 2021 08:00 AM

    We thank the government for messing up matters and putting the burden on the people as usual.
