When will the country be fully reopened?

The Ministry of Health says the behaviour of the citizens will determine the date on which the country will be completely reopened.

Speaking to media at the Health Promotion Bureau today, Deputy Director of Health Services Dr. Hemantha Herath claimed that officials cannot determine up to what extent the novel coronavirus has spread, during the period when travel restrictions were imposed.

When questioned by media over easing all restrictions, Dr. Herath said the imposition of travel restrictions is only one of the many factors that determines the pace that the virus would spread.

He assured that the country could come out of the pandemic if everyone was vaccinated, and continued to follow guidelines thereafter.
