    The death of a 50 year old female without any prior serious illness, needs further investigation. I will like to know how the covid-19 patients are treated in Sri Lanka. High dose vitamin D3 and Dexamethasone are two life saving medications. Everyone should take vitamin D3, vitamin C and oral Zinc supplements to prevent the covid-19 infection. This is the early stage of the pandemic in Sri Lanka. The pandemic will continue for another 4 to 6 months.

    This is so frightening to see old people of this country are dying from corana despite other illnesses. We wonder whether they are getting full treatments once admitted to hospitals.

    IT APPEARS THAT THE HEALTH DEPT STAFF ARE STRESSED OUT AS THEY CANNOT SUSTAIN THEIR SERVICES FOR SUCH LONG PERIOD OF TIME WITHOUT A BREAK. THIS IS RESULTING IN NEGLECTING THEIR ATTENTION TOWARDS THE PATIENTS

    very sad situation. I work in the hotels. Yesterday there was a party at Monarch Thalawathugoda. Mr Ajith Rohana and the Minister of Law was also there. There was a huge number of participants. No control at all. At the end the party went fine and the Mr Ajith Rohana mentioned dont put photos in Facebook laughing.. Everyone enjoyed and went home. This is a very sad situation. The law is different for people with big money.

    It seems that everybody got used to the DEATHS.Nobody cares. Just think of the first death of COVID 19-How media reacted-How health authority, ministers and so on reacted.

    I think the government encourages the spread of covid so they can hide their failures behind it for this 5 years and also all their juggleries
