The country may likely to reopen from next week as per the government's planning, emphasised State Minister Dr. Sudarshani Fernandopulle, speaking to media upon her visit to the Office of Medical Officer of Health in Seeduwa today (14). 

Due to the four-week lockdown, the number of Covid related deaths and infections had dropped, against all speculations otherwise, she noted, adding that the restrictions helped to curb the pandemic's prevalence.

Dr. Fernandopulle further noted that the country will be able to reopen gradually by continuing the vaccination process and adhering to the health guidelines.
