    Thousands of people have died of Covid-19 in some of the top hospitals in America and Western Europe. And now we have this sad news of the Sri Lankan dying in Chilaw Hospital. Journalists in the West are ridiculously faulting the Politicians and Policy Makers for the Covid deaths. But no one is asking the doctors why are so many dying in the hospitals ? It is clear now, if the Sri Lankan Military had not got involved in isolating people to quarantine centres then the civilians would have gone to the hospitals ,trusting that the doctors have all the answers, and thousands would have perished at the hospitals just like what happened in the West.

    OML!!, so if you are in a group that comes into the country and you die due reasons other than COVID-19, you automatically get classified as a positive patient, really sad.
