COVID-19 in Sri Lanka: A Litmus Test for the New Government   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Summary: "On 12 April 2020, the Sri Lankan government announced that universities and schools across the country would re-open for a new term in mid-May 2020, signalling that it is considering an exit strategy to end the island-wide curfew, the reason being that the virus outbreak has been contained to a manageable level. While retaining the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] curve without allowing an exponential spike is testimony to the government's success in its response to the pandemic, the real litmus test will be its success in managing the post-COVID challenges."
