Claiming that the Covid mortality and infections have reduced during the lockdown period, State Minister Sudarshani Fernadopulle said today that the Government will take steps to reopen the country after next Monday.

She told reporters that the four-week lockdown was more than enough to curtail the spread of the disease and that there has been a decrease in Covid mortality and infections during this period.

“I don’t think the country will be locked down after next Monday. The country should be reopened gradually, adopting to a new lifestyle with Covid while continuing health practices and the vaccination programme,” she said.

The Minister rejected rumours that Covid vaccines would cause infertility and sexual dysfunction.(Ajith Siriwardana)

    Impose quarantine curfew from 10pm Friday to Monday 4am indefinitely until further notice, it will make a big difference like in India

    If all health authorities are satisfied with the level of containing the disease by all means go ahead open it, please. Any concerns forget political maneuvering and extend the quarantine period. First people must live secondly we can look into developments and economy.

    Herd immunity will be reached by September 20 and the pandemic will be over. Country can be reopened fully by then.

    Covid please note

    countryman Tuesday, 14 September 2021 04:00 PM

    Please do not talk rubbish Madame. The whole world tried this lockdown system, and it never worked, It only made people like you happy. Take ,Europe or America, they kept their countries locked for long periods. It never helped. Now they have opened their countries and learning to live with it. This virus will take it's toll any way, the only, choice is for each person to be careful and to get the vaccine.

    About time jokes are stopped and either have a serious lockdown or open gradually while adhering to health regulations.

    Nelum Tuesday, 14 September 2021 04:11 PM

    Indeed. What's the point extending lockdown when the virus has gone to all the provinces? Learn to live with Covid.

    Gee Tuesday, 14 September 2021 04:14 PM

    She has no say to this matter and should not give false promises until president's announcement.

    Maybe she is having her son's wedding party afterall.

    Fernandez Tuesday, 14 September 2021 09:25 PM

    The proposal to extend the locked-down for further more 11 days from the relaxation date 21 announced earlier, has already been on the cards.

    mp Wednesday, 15 September 2021 07:57 AM

    Question number one is whether the country was closed? Number two is whether death rate and infected rate has satisfactorily declined? You two are talking rubbish.

    Rosa Friday, 17 September 2021 11:53 AM
