Dr. Ananda Wijewickrama, the Consultant Physician at the Infectious Diseases Hospital (IDH) said the capacity of the COVID-19 patients at the IDH has exceeded as of today.

He said there were 140 COVID-19 patients and 10 more suspected patients undergoing treatment at the IDH.

"This is an exceeding of the Hospital capacity. The initial plan was to treat about 120 patients. With the spike in recent navy cases, we took some of them in. We were planning to send about 25 who have recovered but waiting for final results and need no strict observations to the Wethara Hospital today but we couldn't do it. If we can transfer some of these patients, then we can take more COVID-19 patients in," he said.

    What treatment? There is no proven medicin and not all patients need oxygen or ventilation? In most countries mildly sick are quaranteened at home as obviously hospitals will not be able to take care for all mild cases.

    Take some of the private hospitals. These money spinners never do anything for the society. Everyone has a duty toward our country. The political parties have their allocation of funds for the May day celebrations. Since they do not have a May day celebration. All the political parties should distribute the funds to the needy at this time of crisis. The banks can go for 0% profit and allocate their profits for the benefit of the country.
