Another group of 100 persons who were directed to quarantine upon arriving on the island from foreign countries have been sent home today (01).

These individuals were quarantined for two weeks at the centres set up in Diyatalawa, Damminna and Punani, the Army said.

Accordingly, a total of 2,121 who were directed to the quarantine process at the facilities maintained by the security forces have left for homes so far.
