Farmers in action despite Covid-19 epidemic (Pics)

Amid the islandwide curfew imposed to curb the Covid-19 epidemic in the country, farmers in Puttalam area are busy harvesting their paddy fields.

Usually, the paddy fields are harvested well ahead of the  Sinhala and Tamil New Year. However, this year, everything has changed due to the prevailing situation.

The following photos show how farmers are eagerly harvesting  from around 200 acres of paddy fields in Veppamaduwa area of Viluka, Puttalam Divisional Secretariat.
