Army Commander General Shavendra Silva said that authorities will present recommendations and guidelines to the President tomorrow at the Presidential Task Force meeting on Covid-19 to take a decision with regards to the current quarantine curfew.

During the previous meeting, the President did instruct the experts and authorities to submit reports as to what type of restrictions and guidelines should be maintained after opening the country, he said.

Gen. Silva told the Daily Mirror that authorities will submit those recommendations to the Task Force meeting chaired by the President and will review as to what type of restrictions could be recommended if the country were to open up after September 21.

When inquired about several requests on extending the quarantine curfew, the Commander said the President will take a decision considering all the aspects. (Darshana Sanjeewa Balasuriya)

    Allow fully vaccinated people to travel between Districts in their own vehicles.

    Extending quarantine curfew? What a crazy idea, are people going to eat black fungus? If the lockdown is to continue, then immediately cut all government servant salaries by 75% and distribute to daily wage earners

    It is most prudent to extend he lockdown until the end of this month.

    Most imprudent for daily wage earners. When will people with a secure income realise the hardship of common people?

    Sam Silva Thursday, 16 September 2021 09:20 PM

    Just relax the curfew and eventually people will get immune.

    The circus begins again. The Medical Fraternity care a tuppence for the suffering masses as their salaries are paid curfew or not. It is evidenced even when you channel a doctor by paying exorbitant amounts the shoddy treatment the patient gets. So will they care for the poor daily wage earners who have reached starvation level. H.E if you want your Govt to survive take the bold step and ignore their opinions and open up on 21 Sep as we all know the economy is at bankrupt level and cannot go any further and the poor people are in absolute misery
