A P.R.C. machine that can detect many viruses including Covid-19 has been gifted to the Health Ministry by Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday.

The USD 3,000 worth machine which was manufactured in Korea was handed over to Health Minister Pavithra Wanniarachchi at the Prime Minister’s residence at Wijerama Mawatha.

The machine is able to detect viral infections in a short period of time. It is a small portable machine which was gifted to the Prime Minister as a personal gift.

However, Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa has decided to gift this machine to the Health Ministry as the ministry needed this machine in these difficult times when the whole world is fighting against Covid-19.

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, Mr. W.D.J. Seneviratne and Mr. S.M. Chandrasena also graced this occasion. (Thisari Andria Walawege)

    One,machine is not enough. Why can't GOSL imports many more machines and distributed to all Hospitals across Sri Lanka on a immergency initiative. Or can request Sri Lankan business community to gift such machine. Other countries allocating vast some of money to fight Vivid 19. Wake up my dear Sri Lanka rather than publicity for a mere one machine!

    Oh,God. MR had done a meaningful thing without the advise from clergy. Is it from his money or people's money?
