Officials have warned that the coronavirus is now spreading at a faster rate in Sri Lanka and as a result the public must take extra precautions.
Police Spokesman, Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Ajith Rohana said that the virus is spreading faster than it did in March-April this year.
He said that according to health experts the virus which spread from the Minuwangoda and Peliyagoda clusters is spreading faster than it did earlier.
As a result, the public have been urged to stay at home, limit outings and follow the health guidelines.
The Police Spokesman also noted that those in home-quarantine must stay indoors and not entertain outsiders in their homes. (Colombo Gazette)
