Sri Lanka extends Coronavirus curfews, work from home till Apr 03, to bottle Covid-19 with count at 106



ECONOMYNEXT – Sri Lanka extended a work from home period to April 03, and has slapped indefinite Coronavirus curfews on three districts with authorities making a final effort to stop any remaining unidentified carriers infecting others.

The work from home period from March 30 to April 03 will apply to all State, semi-government and private sector entities except which are categorized as essential services.

“This period is not considered as public holidays. Uninterrupted continuation of public services is the responsibility of the Government,” the Presidents office said.

“However, the objective of this measure is to prevent unnecessary gathering of people and pave the way for self-quarantine.”

Since the Wave II surge of the epidemic began with infected returnees from countries other than China in March daily growth of confirmed patients had been in the single or low double digits.

On March 26, the health ministry had confirmed four new cases by 2100 hours taking the total to 106. Another 237 suspected patients are under observation.

Four Coronavirus patients have recovered so far, including a Wave I patient from China who was originally infected with the Wuhan virus in January 2020.

There have been no deaths but two are in intensive care, the head of Sri Lanka’s health service Anil Jasinghe has said.

Sri Lanka has slapped indefinite curfews in Colombo, Kalutara and Gampaha, calling them high risk areas, while a curfew was also extended in Jaffna where an infected Swiss pastor conducted a service.

Out of patients indentified up to late afternoon Thursday Colombo had recorded 22, Kalutara, 15, Gampaha 10 and Puttalam 09, Jasinghe said, prompting the areas to be designated high risk.

Health Workers Discriminated

“Today four people recovered from Coronavirus and left for home quarantine,” Health Minister Pavithra Wanniarachchi said in a daily recorded statement.

“That is something to be happy about. The health workers, the nurses, doctors and minor workers deserve the honour of the nation, along with the service personnel and the army commander.

“However we have heard that when they go home they face some discrimination in society”

They are a great strengthen to the people; they need the honor of the people.

Wanniarachchi said Suwaseriya paramedic ambulance workers also performing a great service to the nation.

“They are bringing in Coronavirus patients, going to houses not caring whether people have Coronavirus or not,” she said.

Jasinghe said some health workers have been asked to leave their residences.

“They are not infected persons, they know how to protect themselves,” Jasinghe said.

Jasinghe had also sought police support to protect persons who are not wearing masks in public. Members have been asked to stay away from each other maintaining at least a meter distance (Britain’s National Health Service is advising 2 meters) a the key preventive measure and washing hands frequently.

Wearing surgical masks incorrectly, moving them around with hands will transfer germs to the hands to the mouth and nose, health experts have said. If there is active community transmission, the government would ask people to wear masks.

“Even some officials who do not know the correct position has been creating problems for the members of the public who do not wear masks,” Jasinghe said.

“This is also the advice of the World Health Organization. The Lancet journal has also yesterday published a piece with a similar view.”

Jasinghe also asked the public not to ask for curfew passes especially to visit relatives.

Medicine Distribution – Correct address needed

With ongoing curfews patients who visit hospitals for monthly clinics cannot get their medicine.

“We have discussed with the Postal Service and medicines will be put in packets and distributed by post. For that we need the correct address and telephone number.

“So we are asking clinic patients to call the hospitals and update their addresses and telephone numbers if wrong one has been given.

He said a meeting had been held with a pharmacy association and the pharma chamber to develop a mechanism for private patients who buy regularly from pharmacies.

“There may be problems at first, but we will observe and fix them,” Jasinghe said.

“We are doing all this so that people will maintain their distance.”

Quarantine

Army Chief Shavendra Silva said 223 person who had been quarantined at Punani and Kandakadu centres had been released on March 26.

“They have been asked to home quarantine for 14 days. Up to now 678 persons have left quarantine.

He said 2,866 were in quarantine and another 443 will leave on Friday.

The head of Sri Lanka’s Health Promotion Bureau Paba Palihawadana said they were asked to home quarantine because the virus was new and also visitors tended to come home to see them.

“If a lot of people come home to see them, they can get re-infected,” she said.

Economic Toll

Senior advisor to the Finance Minister Nivard Cabraal has called for a strategy to get the economies working after Covid-19 ends.

“The Sri Lankan economy would also have to be re-shaped and restructured to deal with the new global economic order and the challenges that would unfold,” Cabraal said.

Sri Lanka has imported extra food from India for April season: Minister

Information Minister Bandula Gunewardene had said that Sri Lanka’s traders had imported extra food from India in March to cope with high demand in the April New Year season and there were extra stocks of food.

Health Minister Wanniarachchi said beneficiaries of Samurdhi income supplements will get a 10,000 rupee credit.

However day labourers earners who have been working hard and not depending on tax payer handouts have been badly hit with no income.

Television reports said Sri Lanka’s price controllers have disrupted the work of Dambulla economic trading centre, which works on commission like a stock excahne claiming that traders were pushing up prices.

Angry market participants were interviewed on TV saying prices were pushed down by force to 80 rupees a kilogram depriving farmers of incomes but the same goods were retailed at high prices elsewhere.

The Consumer Affairs Authority also caused a nation-wide shortage of tinned fish, by slapping a 100 rupee price control.

Tinned fish prices are artificially kept up in Sri Lanka with import duties to benefit a handful of politically connected rent seeking domestic producers, critics have said. (Colombo/Mar27/2020)

New cases for USA & Spain - 17,224 & 8,271 respectively, the highest for both countries

New deaths for USA & Spain - 268 & 718 respectively, the highest for both countries

Total infected cases in USA reached 85,435 became the country with highest infections now

This virus now running through Europe & USA like a sand hurricane with no whatsoever relief not because the virus is deadly but because these countries have not taken it seriously. Now its an absolute carnage there.

ඇමරිකාවේ රෝගීන් දෙදෙනකුට එක ස්වසන සංවාතන යන්ත්‍රයක්

වෛද්‍ය සැපයුම්වල හිඟයක් ඇතිවීමේ අවදානමක් හටගැනීමත් සමඟ රෝගීන් දෙදෙනකුට එක් ස්වසන සංවාතන යන්ත්‍රයක් (වෙන්ටිලේටර්ස්) භාවිත කිරීමට ඇමෙරිකා එක්සත් ජනපදයේ නිව්යෝක් නුවර රෝහල් තීරණය කර ඇත.

දැනට පවතින ස්වසන සංවාතන යන්ත්‍ර (වෙන්ටිලේටර්ස්) නවීකරණය කර එලෙස රෝගීන් දෙදෙනකුට එක් යන්ත්‍රයක් භාවිත කිරීමේ තීරණය ගෙන ඇති නමුත් ඇතැම් වෛද්‍යවරු එය අවදානම් යැයි අනතුරු අඟවා ඇත.

ගෝලීය වසංගතයක් බවට පත්ව තිබෙන නව කොරෝනා වයිරසයේ, නව කේන්ද්‍රස්ථානය බවට පත්ව ඇත්තේ ඇමෙරිකා එක්සත් ජනපදයයි.

කොරෝනා වයිරසය පෙනහලුවලට බලපාන රෝගයක් වන අතර දරුණුම අවස්ථාවලදී ඉන් සිදුවිය හැකි හානිය ඉතා විශාලය. කොරෝනා වයිරසය හේතුවෙන් සති කිහිපයක් ඇතුළත නිව්යෝක් නගරයෙන් වාර්තා වී ඇති මරණ ගණන 281 ක් වන අතර එම නගරයෙන් වාර්තා වී ඇති ආසාදිතයන්ගේ ගණන 22,000කි.

නිව්යෝක් නගරය තුළ වෛද්‍ය සැපයුම් හිඟයක් ඇතිවීමේ දැඩි අවදානමක් හටගෙන ඇත. මේ හේතුවෙන් ව්‍යවසනකාරී තත්ත්වයක් ප්‍රකාශ කිරීමේ අවදානමක් නිර්මාණය වී ඇතැයි ද නිව්යෝක් බලධාරීහු ප්‍රකාශ කළහ.

නිව්යෝක් නුවරට තවත් ඇත්තේ ස්වසන සංවාතන යන්ත්‍ර සීමිත ප්‍රමාණයක් බවත් තව දස දහස් ගණනක් අවශ්‍ය බවත් වාර්තා වේ. මේ තත්ත්වය හේතුවෙන් දැනට පවතින යන්ත්‍ර නාලයක් සවි කර රෝගීන් දෙදෙනකුට භාවිත කිරීමට නිව්යෝක් බලධාරීහු තීරණය කර ඇත. මෙය සෞඛ්‍යාරක්ෂිත නැති බවත් අවදානම් සහගත බවත් ඇතැම් වෛද්‍යවරු මෙන්ම විශේෂඥයෝ ප්‍රකාශ කළහ.

රොයිටර්

This states 22,000 patients from NY but as of now they are having 40,000. So I cant imagine why the so-called world economic power house don't have the medical infrastructure to treat patients. Obviously they had other priorities of raging wars with other countries than preparing for a medical emergency. I don't think still the Trump administration have identified the gravity on this issue. They are still not in complete lockdown but instead hoping to open up the USA for normal business from next month. Bloody damn fool...

New deaths during last 24 hours - 64,589
New deaths during last 24 hours - 3,265

These figures are higher than previous 24 hour numbers

USA had 18, 691new cases bringing the total number of cases to 104,126 becoming the first country to pass 100,000 infections

Italy had 919 more deaths with total number of deaths 9,134

Spain had 773 more deaths with total number of deaths increasing to 5,138

France had 299 new deaths with total deaths of 1,995

All these figures are higher than previous days numbers

This trend is not good at all. Indicates things are becoming worse and worse worldwide and coronavirus has already speeded most of the parts in all these countries. And the worse part of this is that this is now going beyond the limits where health system can manage and moving to uncontrollable areas which means we can expect ever increasing numbers going forward.

Very sooner we will see 100,000 new cases being identified within a single day + 10,000 deaths per day.

Remember health research has revealed coronavirus can kill 1.8mn people worldwide this year.

And at the final equation can we still expect a recovered equity markets from now on or things becoming worse and worse.....

Sri Lanka village in Covid-19 lockdown as zero Coronavirus cases reported for second day


ECONOMYNEXT – Sri Lanka has locked down a village South of the capital Colombo after a confirmed Coronavirus patient was found who had contacts with at least 26 persons, while nationwide curfews continue to combat the spread of Covid-19.

Sri Lanka recorded the second day with no new infections on March 27, since Sri Lanka’s Second Wave infections started with infections from Italy.

Sri Lanka has so far confirmed 106 cases, and 238 are in hospitals under observation. Six patients including a Wave I patient from Wuhan had recovered up to March 27 morning.

Surgical Lockdown

Sri Lanka has been aggressively quarantining arrivals, chasing down contacts and putting the country under curfew to contain the virus.

“In the Bandaragama divisional secretary area, in the village of Atalugama we found that Coranvirus case had close contacts with over 26 percents,” Sri Lanka’ Army Commander Shavendra Silva who heads an anti-Coronavirus task force in the island in a recorded video.

“These 26 persons have been quarantined in a centre in the same area.

“Under the advice of health authorities others are asked to be in self-quarantine.”

Atalugama had been put in surgical quarantine with police setting up barricades at all entry points. No one is allowed to enter or leave the village.

Meanwhile the military had also released another 501 persons from quarantine, taking the total released up to now to 1,174, General Silva said. In the quarantine centres 2,871 remain. Another 300 would be released on Saturday he said.

Sri Lanka has been aggressively chasing contacts of all confirmed Coroanvirus cases, while there are nation-wide curfews to prevent the spread of the disease.

Out of 106 confirmed cases 33 were from quarantine centres, who had returned from abroad.

“If these people were not quarantined, there would be big calamity in the country,” Health Minister Pavithra Wanniarachchi said.

Sri Lanka has since barred all arrivals, whether foreigners or citizens.

The government on Friday asked overseas citizens to wait until the work currently being done to contain the diseases in the island is completed.

Many countries have closed borders, but many are also allowing citizens to return.

Vietnam which is also aggressively chasing contacts has so far quarantined

Under Watch

By Saturday March 28, 14 days had elapsed since a ‘Big Match’ between Colombo’s Royal and St. Thomas’ College where a Coronavius patient was found. The big match had been a key concern for authorities.

Other incidents include a father-son duo who had attended the Red Mosque in Colombo. In Jaffna, indefinite curfews are also in place after an infected Swiss pastor held a service and one of his associates were infected.

However the curfews have put severe economic hardship of day wage earners as well as companies.
A 6,000 rupee credit has been given to Samurdhi income supplement recipients.

The government has announced a multiple economic measures including credit relief.

Sri Lanka Ports Authority Friday exempted ships from entry fees and demurrage and shippers from warehouse rents and container storage charges.

Meanwhile Sri Lanka’s monetary policy continues to cause concern as it had done for nearly 70 years since and unstable soft-peg was set up in 1951.

Sri Lanka has injected large volumes of money into the credit system, despite not having either a reserve currency or a floating exchange rate undermining the credibility of the peg.

Sri Lanka makes cremation mandatory for any COVID19 fatalities

ECONOMYNEXT – Sri Lanka is yet to record a death by the COVID19 disease but Judicial Medical Officers (JMO) across the country have been sent Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) to be followed if a patient in a hospital succumbs to the coronavirus.

The remains of all those who pass away from this disease will be cremated within 24 hours regardless of their faith according to the SOP.

A document seen by EconomyNext and authenticated by the JMO Department says that an inquest and an autopsy would not be necessary as the death will occur in an Intensive Care Unit or some special unit set aside for the purpose.

The procedures are similar to any other disease considered highly contagious.

The bodies need to be bagged and disinfected, and a limited time given to close family members to view the remains. The viewing has to take place only inside the hospital premises and the relatives are to be given masks.

Only the face of the deceased will be uncovered.

No touching of the body will be permitted, the SOPs say.

After that, the remains should be handed over to the funeral directors.

Embalming is strictly prohibited as the process may endanger the staff of the funeral home, and possibly cause further spread of the disease.

Funeral homes will be expected to immediately bag the body and place it in a coffin which will be sealed.

The sealed coffin can be placed in a parlour or a home only for religious rituals.

Mass gatherings and funeral functions are not permitted and the SOP calls for the remains to be cremated within 24 hours of the death.

On Monday morning according to the Ministry of Health, there were 87 patients confirmed as having the disease in government hospitals with 2 listed in critical condition at the National Institute of Infectious Diseases (IDH).

Four are listed as recovered but only one, a Chinese tourist has been discharged. (Colombo, March 23, 2020)

Europe’s virus toll surges but Wuhan cautiously reopens



AFP – The accelerating death toll from the coronavirus epidemic sweeping the globe surged past 20,000 in Europe on Saturday, with hardest-hit Italy and Spain both reporting more than 800 dead in a single day.

As many as one-third of the world’s population is now living under lockdown and US President Donald Trump says he is considering placing New York state under “quarantine”, as the Chinese city where the outbreak began has begun to return to normality.

The worst hit country, Italy, announced 889 new COVID-19 deaths on Saturday, pushing it past the 10,000 mark, and Spain added 832, as Madrid officials said the epidemic seemed to be nearing a peak.

Russia will become the latest country to close borders on Monday in an attempt to slow the pandemic’s spread, according to a government decree.

More than 600,000 cases of the novel coronavirus have been officially recorded around the world since the outbreak began late last year, according to an AFP tally.

Variations in testing regimes mean the true number is likely far higher and confirmed deaths are mounting.

Europe is now the worst-hit continent with 20,059 deaths. France has seen close to 2,000 fatalities and the British toll passed 1,000 on Saturday.

Spanish official Fernando Simon suggested the virus was “very, very close” to peaking in his country: “The increase is slowing or stabilising little-by-little.”

Elsewhere, Iran announced 139 more deaths and India sealed off a dozen Punjab villages that had been visited by a guru now known to be infected and a possible “super-spreader”.

Sri Lanka recorded its first death and Turkey hit 100 fatalities.

South African police resorted to rubber bullets in Johannesburg to enforce social distancing on a crowd queueing for supplies outside a supermarket during a national lockdown.

The United States now has the world’s highest number of COVID-19 cases but per capita European nations are still the worst hit, with emergency services across the world struggling to cope.

– Wuhan partially reopens –

However, two months of almost total isolation appear to have paid off in Wuhan, the Chinese city where the virus first emerged.

Residents have been forbidden to leave the city since January, with roadblocks installed and millions subject to dramatic restrictions on their daily life.

But on Saturday people were allowed to enter the city and most of the subway network restarted. Some shopping centres will open their doors next week.

The US, which now has more than 104,000 COVID-19 patients, invoked emergency powers Friday to force a private company to make medical equipment.

With 60 percent of the US in lockdown and infections skyrocketing, Trump has signed the largest stimulus package in US history, worth $2 trillion — and now seems set to go further.

“We’d like to see NY quarantined because it’s a hotspot — New York, New Jersey, maybe one or two other places, certain parts of Connecticut quarantined,” Trump said, without elaborating.

– ‘Enough, enough’ –

Italy recorded almost 1,000 deaths from the virus on Friday — the worst one-day toll anywhere since the pandemic began.

One coronavirus sufferer, a cardiologist from Rome who has since recovered, recalled his hellish experience at a hospital in the capital.

“The treatment for the oxygen therapy is painful, looking for the radial artery is difficult. Desperate other patients were crying out, ‘enough, enough’,” he told AFP.

Infection rates in Italy are on a downward trend, but the head of the national health institute Silvio Brusaferro said it was not out of the woods yet, predicting a peak “in the next few days”.

Spain has the world’s second-highest death toll and its cases jumped to 72,248 on Saturday as the country moves to ramp up testing.

Belgium and Luxembourg also saw a steep climb in deaths, with 353 recorded in the former on Saturday — up from 289 the day before — and 15 in the grand duchy, up from nine.

Europe has suffered the brunt of the coronavirus crisis in recent weeks, with millions across the continent on lockdown and the streets of Paris, Rome and Madrid eerily empty.

Meanwhile, other countries across the world were bracing for the virus’s full impact, with AFP tallies showing more than 26,000 deaths globally.

The World Health Organization’s regional director for Africa warned the continent faces a “dramatic evolution” of the pandemic.

As even rich countries struggle, aid groups warn the toll could be in the millions in low-income countries and war zones such as Syria and Yemen, where healthcare systems are in tatters.

This is reaching totally uncontrollable area now. At the going rate I can predict we will see the following numbers by next Sunday morning (5th April)

Total infected cases worldwide - 1.2mn
Total deaths worldwide - 60,000

USA alone will report total cases close to 300,000 by next week. Can Trump's USD 3 trillion stimulus plan control this? Or he should spend USD 3 trillion to build more hospitals and increase test possibilities around the country?

Sri Lanka threatened by isolated Coronavirus cases, Covid-19 count 117



ECONOMYNEXT – Isolated cases of Coronavirus cases are still turning up from various locations posing a hidden threat, and the public should be careful to maintain social distance when curfew is lifted in some areas on Monday, Sri Lanka’s Army Chief Shavendra Silva said.

“You can see that from time to time, infected persons are turning up from here and there,” General Silva said in a recorded video address to media.

“There is a certain threat. Even though you do not know, there can be infected persons in society.

“So tomorrow when curfew is lifted everyone should maintain a distance of one metre.

Britain’s National Health Service is recommending two meters, but the World Health Organization is recommending one meter saying the virus is likely to fall down within a metre instead of floating around.

Hand washing is advocated to stop germs from moving to the face after touching such surfaces.

Health workers who are performing certain procedures with patients however may get droplets at a longer distance.

Sri Lanka’s health ministry said the confirmed total case had gone up 117 by 8.00 pm Sunday, 11 persons had recovered including a Wave I patient from China in January.

Sri Lanka locked down Akurana town in the Kandy district after a person who returned from Chennai on March 15, was found to be infected with Covid-19.

The 61, year old person from Nelambugama, Akurana had roamed around Kandy town General Silva said.

Akurana town was locked down late Saturday, in the same way Athaluagama in Kalutara was locked down he said. (Colombo/Mar29/2020)

A group from Muttur who had gone to Malaysia and Indonesia was asked to call police and get into self-quarantine.

“Most of them had very co-operatively already gone into self-quarantine,” General Silva told Sri Lanka’s Derana Television, Monday.

“But a few people do not respond. Please do so because it is for everyone’s protection that we are doing. Intelligence services go to a great deal of trouble to find these matters.”

The 64 year old male had died at Negombo Hospital after being transferred from a private hospital. He was confirmed as having the disease today.

He had history of heart disease and also had a chronic respiratory condition the statement said.

The next Coronavirus curfew break will be given at 0600h Wednesday for most districts. The curfews will continue indefinitely in Colombo, Gampaha, Kalutara, Puttalam, Kandy and Jaffna, the president’s office said.

“Traveling to and from all districts is completely prohibited except for the purpose of providing essential services,” the statement said.

Sri Lanka to begin sample Covid-19 testing to check community transmission, Coronavirus count 122



ECONOMYNEXT – Sri Lanka is planning to start sample testing of the population to check Coronavirus community transmission, health chief Anil Jasinghe said as confirmed Covid-19 cases rose to 122 and the country recorded the second death.

“We have so far only tested person in isolation units in hospitals,” Jasinghe told reporters. “We want to check whether there is to some extent this disease in the community.

“Even though we don’t we need to confirms that. So in the future, we will do sample testing.

“To decide how to do this, and which units should do this and their capacity we had a video conference with the unit around the country.

South Korea and Vietnam, which have been aggressively chasing contacts, have done thousands of persons using test kits, produced within the country.

Jasinghe said authorities are tracking 2,210 contacts of confirmed cases most of whom were Wave II arrivals from abroad or their family members.

But other people are now turning up.

But authorities are urging people to stay at home.

By March 30, 1900h, Sri Lanka had confirmed 122 cases, while the total under observation in hospitals fell to 104 from 117 a day earlier.

On Monday concerns grew as a person who was admitted to Negombo hospital died and he was confirmed to have Coronavirus.

The person had been in a private hospital and had also taken treatment from a private doctor before coming to Negombo hospital, raising fears of exposure. The patient had a history of heart and lung problems, authorities said.

It is also not clear how he contracted the disease.

Several family members also showed symptoms a Government Medical Officers Association Representative said.

The patient was cremated according to WHO guidelines late night Monday, Sri Lanka’s Derana TV reported.

Sri Lanka is also urging everyone who entered the country from March 16 from abroad to register with police.

Health Minister Pavithra Wanniarachchi said on in the Chilaw district five family members had contracted Coronavirus, including a four month old infant.

“What I can tell persons who came before 14 days is that even if you are self-quarantined at home, to stay away from family member. Especially older relations.”

Sri Lanka is ahead of many countries in chasing contacts, but the curfews, price controls as well as money printing are generating economic instability.

A state monopoly in drug sales has reduced supply to sick people.

The health service however is activating the postal system to deliver drugs to clinic patients in state hospitals.

The Consumer Affairs Authority had slammed price controls on tinned fish and dhall, popular foods of the less affluent creating shortages in many days.

The central bank has printed large volumes of money and cut rates, and fears expressed by analysts have unfortunately come true and a peg has been de-stablized amid global uncertainty, and the country has lost the opportunity to benefit from US monetary loosening to raise debt at low rates.

Sri Lanka remains under curfew which will be lifted for most areas on Wednesday at 0600 am.

But indefinite curfew remains in Colombo, Gampaha, Kaluthara, Jaffna and Puttalam. (Colombo/Mar31/2020)
