Colombo, August 14 (NewsWire) – The PHI Union of Sri Lanka has requested the public to self-impose a seven-day travel restriction starting from next Monday.
President of the PHI’s Union of Sri Lanka, Upul Rohana said that they will no longer urge the government to impose travel restrictions as previous requests have not been acknowledged.
“For a few days now, 3000+ daily infections are being reported. More than 150 deaths are being reported per day. These numbers will drastically increase in coming days” Upul Rohana said.
“No new travel restrictions were imposed yesterday. Therefore, in the future, we will not request the government to impose any travel restrictions in the country or any related restrictions. So we appeal to the general public to gather whatever required rations and stay home” he went on to say.
“Starting from Monday, let’s be self-disciplined and impose self-restrictions and help eradicate this disease from the country. We also like to urge the relevant authorities to make their decisions by coming out of their air-conditioned rooms and witness the suffering of the people who are losing their loved ones” he concluded.
