Health authorities or Intelligence Services had not received any information that a third contact of the COVID-19 infected patients of the Kandakadu cluster had contracted the virus, DIG Ajith Rohana said today.

He told a news conference that all the first and second contacts of the patients at the Kandakadu cluster had been identified and that there was no need to have unnecessary fear or panic over a second wave.

He said only 20 patients had been identified outside the Kandakadu Drug Rehabilitation centre and that 16 of them were identified from Rajangana.

“These 16 patients are close contacts of the infected army officer who had gone on leave from Kandakadu Drug Rehabilitation Centre. Only four patients are reported from other parts of the country,” he said.

DIG Rohana said 32 clusters have been identified in the country so far where the biggest cluster was reported from the Navy Camp in Welisara, which was successfully controlled and added that the health authorities and intelligence services are taking steps to control this cluster as well.(Ajith Siriwardana)

    The medical experts think otherwise. From when did you get your medical degree?

    You dont need a medical degree to know whether a contact is 2nd level or 3rd level. Big ears, small brains.

    Wait for one week to 10 days make conclusions, if it is true will believe you. Otherwise what would be your reaction ! One of the talkative ladies claimed on 12th March we are free, while hugging the Chinese lady. What is happening now. GMOA said about 500 infections in early days. How should we believe you all.

    This is totally unnecessary reporting when Army Commander and Director General health are doing a very good reporting of the current situation.

    See the other news item which reads - " close contact of one of the positive cases reported from the Kandakadu cluster were among those tested positive" -- you seem to be in another world.
