Foreign Ministry Secretary Instructs Lankan Embassy In Qatar To Immediately Find Accommodation For Stranded Sri Lankans After Cancellation Of Flight

Foreign Ministry Secretary Ravinath Aryasinha has instructed the Sri Lankan Embassy in Qatar to immediately find accommodation for stranded Sri Lankans in the country.

The development took place after a scheduled repatriation flight was cancelled as a result of increased COVID19 positive cases in quarantine camps in Sri Lanka.

The Army Commander said a total of 123 persons who have returned to Sri Lanka from overseas have tested positive for the virus.

Of them, 18 are returnees from Dubai and 90 are returnees from Kuwait.

Sri Lanka has decided to review the repatriation process following these unexpected numbers.
