Former State Minister of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Development SJB MP Dilip Wedaarachchi ate a raw fish during a news conference held at the Opposition Leader’s office today(17) in order to encourage people to consume fish without fear of COVID-19 virus on them.
He said the fishing community had been highly affected and were in a desperate situation as they had been unable to sell the fish due to fears prevailing among people that fish carry COVID-19 virus.
“However, I would like to request people not be afraid of consuming fish and that’s the only way that we can help the fishing community to overcome this critical situation,” he added.
He also said it was the responsibility of the Health Ministry to educate people on the relevant matter.
This what you get when you are uneducated fool in politics.

Foolish act similar to Donald Trump who mentioned that people should drink Clorex to cure Covid. Damn stupid. Trying to gain some publicity. Instead of doing this he could advise people how to safely prepare and handle fish.

He is a clueless guy unable to express himself. Should have demonstrated the Japanese way of eating raw fish with sauce.

There is a difference between 'eating' and 'biting'. Did not see him really eating a good portion and swallowing, just bit a small piece only.

During Maithripala regime SJB MP Dilip Wedaarachchi practiced cannibalism, so, eating raw fish is not a surprise now.
