No islandwide curfew on weekend: NOCPCO

There will be no islandwide curfew during the weekend starting tomorrow (24), stated the Head of National Operations Centre for Prevention of COVID-19 Outbreak (NOCPCO) Lt. Gen. Shavendra Silva today.

He also urged the general public to refrain from panic buying, which will only lead to overcrowding at supermarkets and other outlets, increasing the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
