    It is time to take a full review of the operation methods of health services and the tracking system of coronavirus in Sri Lanka. Alternative opinions should be taken into consideration without being in-boxed by the present system that is in place. If necessary changes should be made to the authority in-charge of the present system in order to find better and innovative approach to the systems. The Science community should be consulted. Researchers should be allowed to input their suggestions for improvement without any reservation. Corona virus is too much of a big problem to be handed over to just one man or a few men alone to manage it. We need more people involved in the decision making process. the private hospitals should be regulated to check the people to find well in advance the spread of coronovirus.

    While people in countries like America, UK and many other countries in Europe living in freezing winter temperatures have lost their lives in thousands many who live in tropical climates have survived the full impact of the covid-19 pandemic. While Sri Lanka has so far recorded 957 cases and 9 deaths Vietnam with a population 98 million almost four times that of Sri Lanka has recorded 300 cases and 0 deaths and Nepal 281 cases and 1 death and Bhutan 21 cases and 0 deaths which proves that the climatic conditions and population have a direct impact on covid 19 pandemic deaths. A research conducted recently has indicated that the covid 19 virus cannot survive temperatures over 35C and disintegrates within 10 minutes of exposure to the sun and loses it's full potential.

    It appears that the chairman of the EC is in control of the pandemic numbers. More out patients than in patients, never happened anywhere else in the world. If no one can fake it, sure we can.

    Where is the world best control?. Cases in most of the countries are going down and here it’s going up. Who is deceiving whom?

    According to Army commander infected patients are 960 all the time almost all the patients are from Navy camp question to most people are why entire country is under curfew because the healthcare authorities easily can control the situation in the camp .

    All foreign embassy personal have to routine check. or any other individuals or group. Corona virus "very suspicious product" Corona virus is not likely nature's product come out of China. There more independent thinking people live in Canada and Germany. Unlike Sri lanka, they economically capable and intelligence. therefore, all they need is to get together and built massive intelligent unit include new satellite system to intercept global communication system to make sure they do not miss anybody in the US, China, Sri lanka, India, Africa and Europe as well, World need an independent intelligent agency that some countries like Sri lanka can trust, I think German and Canadian can do it
