President Gotabhaya Rajapakse has instructed to send those who are coming from overseas for PCR tests at the airport premises and directed them to quarantine after getting the test results at the premises itself. They have been instructed to provide with necessary facilities at a separate location until the test results are given, before the emigration procedures. The president gave the instructions during a discussion this afternoon at the presidential secretariat with Covid-19 task force and specialist doctors. It was decided to set up a laboratory at the airport premises to get PCR test results expeditiously. It was also decided to look into the possibility of subjecting them to PCR tests in those countries with direct intervention of the government or with the participation of the relevant countries. The president emphasized that those who are wishing to come back to the country should be given the opportunity soon.
