An unidentified fever has claimed the lives of two people in Matara. A female graduate teacher from Kataragama (34) and a father of five from Kottegodda (64) died at the Matara Hospital where they were admitted after contracting the fever.

Samples of the patients have been sent for further analysis to the Colombo Medical Research Institute by the
Matara Hospital.  Fever, stomach aches and body pains have been identified as the symptoms of this unidentified form of fever.

    Parliamentary election fever! (More and more inventions more and more diseases and the people too like new discoveries and inventions for easy go life, use and throw, easy disposal things increasing mechanization and use of power generation at the risk of exposure to radiation ; also forget that what is in store from farm products and genetically engineered products! Extra territorial forces work day and night to put the people in unison with nature?)

    No Mr. Calistus ! This is SIRA FEVER, W.H.O. Chief is from Sri Lanka, no medicine in Hospital pharmacies. Half of what is prescribed have to be bought from outside pharmacies. The health sector has gone to the dogs. DR.FONSEKA, only cures viruses and long lasting diseases.
