In Sri Lanka, a total of 94 persons tested positive of COVID yesterday bringing the total number of infections to 2,605. Among them are 76 people transferred from a rehabilitation center while another 14 are their contacts. 

The center has seen 383 positive cases over the past three days, becoming a rapidly growing cluster. Health authorities are carrying out contact tracing and quarantine processes to find out all positive cases related to the new cluster. 

The country is scheduled to hold parliamentary elections on 5th of next month as a number of cases had come under control for the past two months and no case of community transmission was seen. However, the new cases have posed a fresh challenge to the government though the Election Commission has denied postponement of elections. 

The ruling political party has cancelled public meetings for the next three days to help fight the situation and prevent the spread of the virus. Police has said, false information and rumors over social media platforms are being monitored and stern legal action will be taken against those who spread misinformation.
