  • Russian Federation has helped many countries to establish such lasting solutions

The Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA) has written to President Gotabaya Rajapaksa calling on him to request technical support from Russia, to initiate the much-needed production  to scale-up Sri Lanka’s testing capacity. 
The letter said:  Sri Lanka is now exploring our strategy, of enhancing our national capacity for testing -a crucial step.   
“Even after the current lock-down phase, until we find a vaccination, we will have to maintain our testing strategy to identify and isolate cases,” the GMOA said.  
“We believe the sustainable approach will be to co-ordinate national level innovators and producers and provide them with the required technical support to initiate the much-needed production in Sri Lanka,” it added.  
“When  evaluating the global situation, it was revealed, that the Russian Federation has already helped many countries in the world to establish such lasting solutions”.   
The GMOA said in the letter,  it would be useful to establish some technical collaboration with  experts in the Russian Federation to support this initiative.   
“GMOA Technical Committee on the above subject has identified the list of items which could be requested from the Russian Federation to enhance our facilities,” it said.   
The GMOA said, they had requested the President to secure much needed technical support to boost these activities at national level, to prepare Sri Lanka for the next phase in its fight against the pandemic.
