Sri Lanka will not hold elections due to coronavirus

Sri Lanka will not conduct the parliamentary elections as scheduled on April 25 due to the coronavirus outbreak, Mahinda Deshapriya, the chairman of the country’s election commission, said.

The government earlier this week banned all incoming flights for two weeks, and imposed a curfew in some areas to rein in the spread of the disease.

There have been over 50 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Sri Lanka so far.
