Health Minister Pavithra Wanniarachchi has appealed to the public to understand the gravity of the current situation and follow all safety guidelines in order to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.

She made the appeal addressing the media briefing at the National Operation Centre for the prevention of the spread of COVID-19. During her address, Minister Wanniarachchi said:

“I urge the people to understand the gravity of the situation as the last person to die of the Coronavirus was a healthy 44-year-old who had no underlying health conditions. Therefore, the government is taking all measures to prevent the virus from spreading throughout the country. The curfew is lifted for several hours in certain districts taking into consideration the requirements of the people.

Based on the directives of the special task force appointed by the President and headed by Basil Rajapaksa, all disabled persons, elderly and those with kidney ailments will receive Rs. 5000 through their Grama Seva Officers tomorrow. They will receive this money to their homes.

The COVID-19 tesing will be expanded in the coming days. Sri Lanka’s health sector has always been ahead of the South Asian countries with regard to the coronavirus eradication program. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests are now being carried out in many hospitals across the island to identify COVID-19 infections.”
