No need of full lockdown, existing curbs enough: Health authorities

There is no plan to impose a lockdown as of now despite several requests to do so, the Health authorities said.

Deputy Director General of Health Services Dr. Hemantha Herath told media that people should behave in such a manner that they were not inviting for another wave resulting a lockdown.

“Our strategy at present is to control this situation while the country is open. If we go for a lockdown this time, it would adversely affect not only daily income earners but also monthly income earners,” Dr Herath stressed.

“Hence, what should be done is to make sure that health guidelines are properly followed and booster dose is received as early as possible,” he added. (Sheain Fernandopulle)
