All 101 PCR tests conducted on the students and teachers of the Divulapitiya School have returned negative for COVID-19, Public Health Inspectors Union of Sri Lanka (PHIUSL) Secretary M. Balasooriya told Daily Mirror.
Mr. Balasooriya said the results of the tests that were done yesterday, came out at 6 p.m. today.
“Only one result came back positive from all the PCR tests conducted so far, and that was the daughter of the patient who was identified first. A total of 80 PCR tests were carried out today and that included some children in Sunday Schools and others who experienced symptoms or volunteered for the test,” he said.
These persons have been placed under self-quarantine and their PCR test results will be released tomorrow. (Kalani Kumarasinghe)
