There has been an increase in domestic violence cases during the curfew imposed for the prevention of corona infection in Sri Lanka. An increase has been registered in the Emergency Department of the National Hospital in the capital Colombo. The head nurse of the department, Pushpa de Soysa, said that after the nationwide curfew was imposed on Friday, many women coming to the hospital complained of domestic violence.

These women said that she was a victim of her husband’s misbehavior and assault while being locked in the house.

Meanwhile, the nationwide curfew, which ended on Monday morning, was further extended for a day in eight districts. These districts also include the capital Colombo. The number of corona victims in the country has risen to 82. No deaths have been reported yet.

Please tell that the corona virus has become a big problem not only for Sri Lanka but for the whole country. Among the positive cases of Corona in India, Assam has also locked the state from March 24 to March 31 at 6 pm due to the increasing influence of Corona in the entire state.

At the same time, the Maharashtra government has ordered curfew in the state regarding the rising case of Corona virus. One person has died due to corona virus in West Bengal. The death toll in the country has risen to eight.
