Sri Lanka is facing its worst financial crisis in decades, with foreign exchange reserves dwindling and debt repayments looming.

Its central bank said on Wednesday the country was committed to honouring all forthcoming debt obligations and it was not on the verge of a sovereign default.

Sri Lanka has outstanding sovereign bonds amounting to $12.55 billion, with $1 billion of the bonds maturing in July 2022.

The island-nation had reported 621,985 coronavirus cases and 15,656 deaths as of Tuesday, data from the country's health bureau showed.

About 64.31% of Sri Lanka's population has been fully vaccinated, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
