    Why only send Corona Virus patients to Tamil places. Better to send them to Matala airport in Hambantota and its easier to rescue Lankans in the world and place them there.

    What if those persons's family members get affected by Corona? Would they still block the ambulance?

    Anyone who is not humane to patients can not be regarded as a civilized human being.
