    Not even half a percent of the population. At least there should be 10000 tests a day.

    u need to do some reading up on pandemic management science. A small tip - Sri Lanka does not have Community Spread

    Please consider the number of cases against the testing is very low as at 0.2%. Therefore don't just suggest to increase number of tests like bull in the china shop.

    Thank you 'forces' for saving SL from covid19. We should stop testing altogether so that we have zero cases.

    Nothing to boast about. With a similar population of 22 million people as Sri Lanka as at 21 June 2020 a country like Australia has conducted over 2 million tests to Sri Lanka's 95,000 PCR tests. The covid 19 virus is a very serious pandemic and you cannot be fooling around with dodgy statistics. No wonder Sri Lanka's numbers are very low and don't add up.
