Covid 19 current situation in Sri Lanka – Travel restrictions should be extended because of the rapid spread of the Indian covid variety

Due to the growing Indian corona variety in the country, there is a strong debate in the health sector that the current active travel restrictions should be further activated.

The Ministry of Health stated that further closure of the country was imperative under any circumstances.

This is due to the rapid spread of this virus variety and illness is a very high condition.

Also, the response to the corona vaccines currently in use is somewhat lower to this variant than in other variants existing in the world.

Current research has shown that both doses of vaccines should be given for protection from this strain.

Further extension of the existing travel restrictions on this situation will be discussed soon.
