The National Operation Centre for Prevention of Covid-19 Outbreak (NOCPCO) has drawn its attention on coordination and facilitation of those in compulsory quarantine at government-run Quarantine Centres, those in house or self-quarantine and those COVID-19 patients receiving treatment in hospitals to vote at the General Election.  

A meeting that took place at the NOCPCO at Rajagiriya between the Chairman of the Elections Commission (EC) Mahinda Deshapriya, its Members and Head of the NOCPCO and Chief of Defence Staff and Army Commander Lt. Gen. Shavendra Silva, Director General of Health Services Dr. Anil Jasinghe, Acting IGP Chandana Wickremeratne and other officials have explored the possibilities of voting for those in quarantine or hospitals under treatment, a spokesman of the NOCPCO said.  


The meeting focused on coordination and facilitation of those in compulsory quarantine at government-run Quarantine Centres, those in house or self-quarantine and those COVID-19 patients receiving treatment in hospitals to vote at the General Election and how such requirements could be coordinated through the armed forces, Police and Health administrators for the smooth conduct of the forthcoming General Election – 2020. Election Commission in turn thanked the Head of NOCPCO, Director General of Health Services and all stakeholders for their dedicated work to contain the spread of the virus and highlighted the importance of continued sustained efforts.
