Melsta Hospitals Ragama said yesterday that it made adjustments to its operations after one of its staff member tested positive for Covid-19.

In a statement, the hospital stated that following the incident, the management of the hospitals spared no efforts in promptly and responsibly addressing the situation and ensuring the safety and well-being of the rest of its staff and most importantly, its valued patients and patrons.

The statement further said “a staff member who recently joined Melsta Hospitals – Ragama has tested positive for Covid-19, and is currently being treated at a government hospital. In light of these circumstances, Melsta Hospitals – Ragama has been actively taking all the necessary preventive and precautionary measures, under the close guidance of the Public Health Inspector (PHI) and Ministry of Health (MOH) of the Gampaha district.

“Prior to commencing his employment at Melsta Hospitals – Ragama on 1st July 2020, the coronavirus-afflicted staff member (who was attached to another leading private hospital at the time) had visited the Kandakadu Rehabilitation Centre on a lecturing assignment, upon the request of the Ministry. After his visit, having learned that the Kandakadu area was marked as an ‘at-risk Covid-19 location’, the staff member had immediately and voluntarily undergone a PCR test at a reputed private healthcare institution, to which he had tested negative. Subsequently, as a precaution, he had enrolled to be quarantined outside of Colombo, after which his next PCR test (which was conducted at the quarantine centre) had revealed a positive result. He has since been admitted to a government hospital, where he is being monitored and remains in good health.”
