    Why remove when the most covid patients are found from these areas?

    People living in these areas are undergoing many problems to meet their daily needs. In Modera Colombo even the pharmacies are closed. Sick people are unable to get their medicines and also unable to withdraw cash from their savings from banks.

    The public should aware more about COVID virus. Lockdown a country, a city or a road wont help to spread the virus. If you lockdown a place for 14 days and once open how much confidence you have that the virus is wiped out. ?? This is all about personal protection and break the chain by giving enough social distance. Please open the country.. people should work and earn to meet their daily living
