No decision taken to declare a complete lockdown-Defence Secretary

Colombo, 05 April, (Asiantribune.com):

Commenting on some rumors going viral claiming that there would be a complete five-day lockdown in the country, he said those rumors were spreading to create a fear psychosis among the public but no such decision had been taken by the Government so far.

“Curfew has been imposed to control the spread of the highly contagious COVID-19 virus. Once the health and security forces with the support of the public have been able to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19, we will be able to remove curfew gradually,” he said.

Maj.Gen. Gunaratne said public should not be misled by such rumors and Police would be dealt with rumormongers, who were creating unnecessary panic among people.
