The Covid-19 patient, who was apprehended after being escaped from the Infectious Disease Hospital (IDH), was transferred to the Kandakadu Quarantine Centre Hospital, Army Commander Shavendra Silva said.

The 41-year-old patient who was an inmate of the Kandakadu Rehabilitation Centre had tested positive for the virus and later transferred to the IDH.

The inmate, whom the police identified as a drug addict with a limp on his left leg had escaped from the IDH on Friday morning.

He was located near the National Hospital, Colombo by two of its staff members a few hours later and was taken back to the IDH.

The Army and the State Intelligence Service have launched a mega operation to track down all those who came in contact with the patient to prevent a transmission into society.

    Hopefully all the people present have been tested. Have all contact persons been tested?

    Why was he brought to IDH? Is this a pre election drama for a possible community spread?
