Sri Lanka suspends visa on arrival for Chinese travellers after confirmed case of Corona virus

AIR PICS
Sri Lankan Government has suspended granting of on arrival visa for Chinese travellers after a Chinese tourist was confirmed positive of Novel Corona virus last evening. The decision was taken at a meeting of Special Committee appointed by President to prevent the Corona virus from spreading in Sri Lanka. The entry to Colombo international airport's arrival and departure terminals had been restricted to passengers only as a precautionary measure. A separate exit gate for travellers from China has already been set up.

Earlier, a 40-year-old Chinese woman was found positive for the virus. She had arrived in the country on 19th of January and was admitted to hospital few days ago following symptoms of the virus. Health officials have advised hotels where the Chinese national stayed to take steps for preventing the spread of virus. At least four more patients with respiratory difficulties have been referred to the Infectious disease hospital and are under observation. Meanwhile, over 200 Sri Lankan students studying in China are in the process of returning back.
