    It's commonly practiced by many individuals even in Singapore. If you are sick you wear a mask so that you will spread or attract viruses. In this case because of the bad smell. It's the choice of the person we don't want to get sick.

    The PM knows the situation smells very bad for his very sensitive nose. Wait and see, Meethotumulla may be spared, but some other place and people will have to be put up with the offensive smell.

    Ranil being the PM of Srilanka feel the severe smell. You can now imagine how the innocent people of Kollonnawa lived with this stench for so many years with all those sicknesses.

    Nobody can escape death when the times come because there are stories of the victims which clearly demonstrate as to how people irrespective of age and sex lost their lives while their kith and kins narrowly escaped.
