The operating theatres of the Kandy Teaching Hospital eye clinic, which was closed due to a contamination, will be reopened on Monday, hospital sources said.

A Hospital Deputy Director speaking to Daily Mirror said the disinfection processes are being carried out at the moment. “We suspect the contamination occurred due to the lack of air-conditioning facilities,” he added.

“We are waiting for the test results of the microbiologist; if the results are clear we will open the theatre by Monday,” he said adding arrangements have also been made to install an air-condition system in the theatre.(Lahiru Pothmulla)

    Can we have Ramith Rambukwella as the first patient/ he is a native of Kandy. Recently he mistook the mail flight door with the bathroom door. He surely needs eye care (afterwards brain care)
