Earlier, Colombo, Gampaha and Kalutara were marked as high risk areas for the coronavirus.
However, the latest map shows the the virus has spread across the country and that almost every area is now high risk.
Sri Lanka has recorded a slow increase in the number of Covid cases over the past couple of weeks.
This has been mostly after fears arose that the Delta variant had spread across Sri Lanka.
However, the Health Ministry asserted that there was still no evidence to prove that the rise in numbers was linked to the Delta variant. (Colombo Gazette)
