Sri Lanka has suspended all flights arriving into the country for two weeks, effective midnight today for two weeks, said Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa in a statement on Twitter.

Yesterday, the government also declared a three day public holiday to slow the spread of coronavirus, across all public and private entities except essential services. 

“Please support the effort by staying home & practice social distancing,” Rajapaksa said in an earlier tweet announcing the holiday.

Sri Lanka currently has 44 confirmed cases, according to Johns Hopkins University.
