Sri Lanka is flattening the COVID-19 infected curve soon but needs tight measure to continue
Only one person was found yesterday, infected of COVID-19 in Sri Lanka but today none so far. As per the SIR model for forecasting the infected patients, Sri Lanka is closer to the peak which can be estimated as 243 in the 3rd week of April. But it seems to be essential to keep the tight measures until the end of April to see the confirm decline of the patients. Used 21 million population as the susceptible population and Stringency Index to calculate the value for R(0).
