Today 31st March Sri Lanka recorded 20 confirmed cases by increasing the total cumulative confirmed cases to 142. Sri Lanka was at Stage 2 of COVID-19 where infected persons usually are acquaintances, relatives or family members of the person infected by traveling in an affected area of the country. The Source of the virus is known and is, therefore, easier to perform contact tracing and contain spread via self-quarantining. But with new 20 cases, there is a possible doubt whether country has fallen to Stage 3 in which those who have not been exposed to an infected person or anyone, who has a travel history to affected countries are tested positive.
