Sri Lanka announced that the country’s regulating authorities have decided to provide booster doses to the front-line workers of the country, after the senior citizens get their respective shots.

The country is all set to ease Covid-19 restrictions in all of its cities, so as to make the environment more Covid friendly. The third jabs of vaccination will be given from the 1st of November, according to the state minister of pharmaceutical production.

The population of 22 million has been vaccinated as yet, that covers around 59% of the total population; however, the health authorities are aiming to get 70% of the population vaccinated within the next 3 weeks.

The recent announcement made by government says as soon as the target of maximum vaccinations is reached, the halted train services will start functioning. After a lot of bans were eased, the public places including cinemas, restaurants and wedding parties started attracting crowds. However, the restrictions continue on large gatherings and public transport.
