A number of passenger trains have been terminated and the curfew extended by the Sri Lankan authorities as cases linked to a new cluster at a garment factory continue to surge.
After the number of passengers declined because of the curfew imposed in many parts of the country, the Railway Department canceled at least 16 trains, mostly running through busy office hours.
In the heavily populated Western province, which includes the capital of Colombo, more than a dozen villages are isolated. On Saturday, after a flood of 609 cases linked to the country's main fish market, the authorities closed at least two fishing harbors and several stalls.

Mask refusers in the South Asian island state of Sri Lanka face imprisonment in the future.
The authorities announced on Friday that anyone who does not adhere to distance rules in public in the fight against the corona virus could also be punished with up to six months in prison and the equivalent of a fine of 46 euros.
"The laws are a protection for health workers and for the police in the implementation of guidelines to contain the virus," said Deputy Police Chief Ajith Rohana. It is now also mandatory to provide hand disinfectants in shops and offices and to keep a customer register.

Engineering a City #thread
Having spent my entire childhood in #Kochi (#Cochin ), it feels criminal to not know the story of how the city came to be the #metropolis it is today. Putting together a thread to trace the journey of the city which has been so endearingly mine (1)
Part 1: The #Malabar Mud-Banks
The story of Cochin is not just about how an engineering marvel can change social fabric, but also of many tenets of #British #Colonialism in India which is often taken for granted, passed off lazily as exploitation, missing nuance (2)
As with any coastal town, the cultural and economic history of Kochi is intertwined with maritime trade routes since the time of the Early Romans and Arabs. Thanks to the #biennale , most of us would now be familiar with the term #Muzuris (3)
