The Covid-19 cases, reported at present are not random cases but in someway linked to the Minuwangoda factory cluster, Health Minister Pavithra Wanniarachchi said yesterday.

She said it was true that cases were reported from several areas in the country but each case had either direct or indirect links to some of the positive cases of the Minuwangoda cluster.

“Therefore, reports that cases are reported here and there randomly, are not just and correct,” she stressed.

Minister Wanniarachchi also said they were doing their best to contain the virus with the support of relevant officials.

“The service rendered by health officers is immense and they are prompt to attend whenever there is a Covid-19 related incident," she said.

“We are confident that the virus can be successfully contained soon,’ she added.

Meanwhile, Minister Wanniarachchi said the number of hospitals, designated to treat Covid-19 patients has been increased to 21 by expanding laboratories and other facilities. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    Madam you are using every possible reason to link this to a " Pokura" and save face while the GMOA says that it is taking the form of a community spread .. Weren't you the one who said that by 19th April Sri Lanka will be Covid free and we will be economically strong .. oh sorry that was before elections no.. !!!

    ravin Saturday, 17 October 2020 08:31 AM

    Very important question is "from where that factory cluster got CORONA_19? " We are more interested in answer to that than all other questions.

    Buruwa Saturday, 17 October 2020 09:14 AM

    Just talking not going to work. Plz do not say that "IT IS NOT A COMMUNITY SPREAD". All have brain to analyze and judge the situation. Prevention is important before it hits.
