Sri Lanka, as all the other nations of the world, is suffering from the outbreak of novel coronavirus. We are under Police curfew from 20th March. Within intervals curfew was paused for 6-8 per day to 19 of 25 non-dangerous districts. Now 21 districts get a release from 5.00 a.m. to 8.00 p.m. All the schools were closed a day after identifying the first Sri Lankan Covid-19 patient. Many schools send students schoolwork via social media. We had a controlled situation, but it seems getting worse now, with more than 40 recording on 24th. Let's stay home, stay safe!
An economic crisis takes a toll on everyone in the community. During these times it is normal to feel stressed. Uncertainty about the future, loss of income, inability to pay bills/repay debts, inflation and unemployment are some key causes that affect mental health. Some people may experience anxiety, depression, insomnia, social withdrawal, physical ailments, and other conditions. It is important to take care of our mental health during these tough times. Make time for resting and relaxation, engage in a hobby you love, and talk to someone close to you. It's totally okay to ask for help...
