Electricity crisis deepens in Sri Lanka
On the other hand, the Sri Lankan government on Saturday announced the closure of all schools and institutions for the coming week due to prolonged power cuts. Sri Lanka’s Ministry of Education advised students to organize online classes to avoid unnecessary commute and save fuel.
