UNP yesterday urged the government to go for a complete lockdown for a specific period and control the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

UNP Chairman Vajira Abeywardene who made a special statement said the government should go for a lockdown for at least two weeks and try to control the ongoing pandemic.

“Government should go for an island-wide lock down and control the spread of COVID-19. Also, efforts should be made to get the essential medical equipment such as ICU beds and PCR machines,” Mr. Abeywardene said.

“It is important to make the right decision at the right time,” he stressed.

Mr. Abeywardene blamed the government for not taking adequate steps to avoid a third wave of COVID-19 pandemic. “The health authorities failed to issue necessary heath guidelines for the Sinhala New Year festive period and allowed movement from one area to another. Also, a false assurance was given to people that the pandemic has been controlled. These shortcomings led to a third wave of the pandemic,” he said. (Yohan Perera)

    Very much agree with everything he said. False security and not enough control was put in place and now Covid is spiking worst than ever here!

    Hillarious !!!! Politically bankrupt UNP Chairman coming up with advise. What he should be doing is to share his mask with those UNP'ers who don't have a mask. Jeff... right or wrong, police is a round the clock thankless job. Just leave a margin.
