With a rise in the number of persons being infected with seasonal influenza and the increase in the number of deaths reported journalists in Matara with the collaboration of the Matara Passenger Transport Company (MPTC), Matara District Pre-School Development Foundation and the Lakshman Yapa Foundation carried out a series of awareness campaigns to prevent the spread of the virus. 

Visitors to the District General Hospital Matara, commuters on super luxury buses in and around Matara, and schoolchildren, were handed over leaflets on how they could protect themselves and others from being infected with the virus and were also provided with disposable face masks.
