Even though the number of COVID-19 cases reported within the Navy are relatively high, all the cases are being reported from quarantine centres, the Navy said today.

Navy Spokesperson Isuru Sooriyabandara told Daily Mirror that the number of cases may seem high since all suspected Navy personnel are being tested for the virus.

“Had we limited ourselves to the random sampling test, the positive cases would have been fewer. That’s why, we test all suspected cases,” he said and expressed optimism that the spread of the virus in the Navy would come to an end in the near future.

The total number of COVID-19 cases reported from the Navy personnel stand at 802 while 426 of them have been discharged after being recovered.

Yesterday alone 31 cases were reported in the Navy.

    Congratulations for all who have given the effort. Please ensure that people who come from abroad are detected and treated from all source of transport methods because outside world is still struggling and we can't live without them.

    If all Navy personnel are not tested for the virus the numbers of the infected would not be so high? If all are not tested, a number of infected personnel might go undetected? They could in turn infect more personnel?

    All the cases put to navy account. How is it being controlled?

    HOW COME ALL NEW CASES EITHER RETURNEES FROM ME OR NAVY. COVID 19 IS VERY FUNNY

    Why are private residential developments being used for naval quarantine? Point in case being Fairway, Galle. If the cases are so high then the risk of local community outbreak is also high.
