Speaking at the daily media briefing at the National Operation Centre for Prevention of COVID-19 Outbreak (NOCPCO), DIG Ajith Rohana said that nearly 7000 curfew violators have been arrested and 1700 vehicles were seized.

He also urged those who have not yet registered after return from foreign lands to do so before 1st April deadline or face arrests and criminal charges.
