Sri Lanka to ease coronavirus restrictions from May 26

Sri Lanka will ease the coronavirus lockdown restrictions from May 26, limiting the curfew hours from 10.00 pm to 4.00 am among other relaxations. The curfew will be lifted during the day across the country, including hot-spot districts of Colombo and Gampaha, President Gotabaya Rajapaksa s said in a statement. The two districts were identified as coronavirus hot-spots and placed under round-the-clock curfew since March 20. Inter-district movement will be permitted from Tuesday, except to Colombo and Gamapaha. Though the curfew will be lifted during the day, social-distancing and other practices to check the spread of COVID-19 will be implemented strictly, officials said. The coronavirus has claimed nine lives in the island nation with 1,068 confirmed cases.
