The Army has deployed a Quick Reaction Rider Team (QRRT) of 20 members to conduct random temperature checks on those arriving in Colombo for essential services.

The QRRT was launched following an initiative, proposed by Army Commander Lieutenant General Shavendra Silva in a bid to further strengthen the ongoing preventive mechanism of the government against COVID-19 in most risky Colombo district.

The Army said the novel practice would promptly diagnose potential persons with abnormal temperature.

“In the event of any observation was made with regard to their temperature, they are quickly referred to medical consultations for onward arrangements," Lieutenant General Shavendra Silva said.

The Army urges the public on essential services to cooperate with those QRRT members who would reach them for their own safety and randomly conduct such temperature checks.

    No country in this world is using it’s Army so creatively to combat Covid-19 as Sri Lanka. I hope the Navy has put a blockade between Sri Lanka and India to prevent Indians fleeing to Sri Lanka with potential infection.

    ONE ASSOCIATES DISCIPLINE TO BE THE HALLMARK OF PERSONAL FROM THE ARMY, AIR FORCE AND THE NAVY. THEREFORE, ONE CAN EXPECT DEDICATION AND DISCIPLINE FROM THEM IN EXECUTING THEIR DUTIES. WAY TO GO FORWARD SRI LANKA IN CONTAINING THE VIRUS
